I was going to say that you might want to reach out to this woman, but in the literal sense, that's probably not a good idea.  ;D

Woman Convicted of Groping Screener
The Associated Press
Tuesday, July 26, 2005; 9:26 PM


GREEN BAY, Wis. -- A woman who was upset over being searched bodily at an airport was convicted Tuesday of assaulting a security screener by grabbing the federal officer's breasts.

A federal jury heard the case against retired teacher Phyllis Dintenfass, who also allegedly shoved the screener during the search at the Outagamie County Regional Airport in Appleton in September 2004.

Dintenfass, 62, faces up to a year in federal prison and $100,000 in fines. The judge set sentencing for Nov. 1.

On Monday, Transportation Security Administration screening supervisor Anita Gostisha testified that Dintenfass activated metal detectors at a checkpoint, and she heard Dintenfass say she thought the problem was bobby pins and barrettes in her hair.

Gostisha said she took the woman to another screening area, where she used a handheld wand. Gostisha said she was following protocol when she also performed a "limited pat-down search."

Gostisha said she was using the back of her hands to search the area underneath Dintenfass' breasts when the woman lashed out at her.

"She said `How would you like it if I did that to you?' and slammed me against the wall," Gostisha testified. "She came at me and grabbed my breasts and squeezed them."

Distenfass claimed she acted in self-defense.

"I said, 'What are you doing? No one's done that to me before,'" she said. "And she kept going ... for what felt like an interminably long time."

Dintenfass denied shoving Gostisha, but admitted putting her hands on the agent's breasts.

"I was mortified that I had done that," she said. "I was reacting to what felt like an absolute invasion of my body."

U.S. Attorney Steven Biskupic said TSA officers perform a vital service and are entitled to protection from assault.

If the TSA considers having one of their officers breasts groped "assault", then wouldn't passengers having their breasts groped be considered assaulted as well?  Or is it assualt only when a government representative is the recipient that the definition changes?

The Heartland Institute, http://www.heartland.org/Benefit2005/welcome.cfm, will be holding its 21st Anniversary Benefit Dinner on Tuesday, Sept. 13 in the Grand Ballroom of the Hilton Chicago Hotel in downtown Chicago.  Tickets are on sale now. The FSP's Assistant Volunteer Coordinator (and your local group leader), Tim Bauman, will be attending. If you're an FSP member or friend who will be attending this event, please say hello to Tim, talk up the FSP to other attendees,and encourage them to take one of our lovely brochures from the information table. Thank you!  :)

Heartland's mission is to help build social movements in support of ideas that empower people. Such ideas include parental choice in education, choice and personal responsibility in health care, market-based approaches to environmental protection, privatization of public services, and deregulation in areas where property rights and markets do a better job than government bureaucracies.

Greetings fellow Chicago Porcs!

Just moved here from MI (YES I know I went in the wrong direction!  ;D  I'm just here temporarily, like a year or two so I can save up to make the BIG move  8) )

Does this group still meet regularly?  Any meetings near CTA/Metra/Pace lines?

There is at least some chatter on the Yahoo group:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Chic-Milw-FSP/

In addition to posting here, you might want to sign up on that group too.

I wanted to give everone an update on the Chicago/Milwaukee local group. 

!!! - We have a simple web site - www.FSPillinois.org.   For starters we have contact and meeting information on the site.  Eventually we would like to have more content.

A little change in the group setup - the Milwaukee area has started their own local group.  Of course Wisconsin members are still welcome to come to the Chicago area meeting, but hopefully it makes it a little easier for them to attend a local meeting.  :)

Additionall there currently is no local group coordinator in the ST Louis area so we have taken in FSP members on Illinois side of the Mississippi and are including them in our monthly emails and meeting invitations.  Check out our web site, www.FSPillinois.org, for meeting dates and location. We meet the first Saturday of every month. 

Did I mention check out our web site, www.FSPillinois.org, and stop by one of our monthly meeting?  ;)
