TSA Allegedly Molests Woman, Harasses and Lies to Son for Recording Incident

From YouTube:

After a woman was allegedly sexually harassed by TSA agents at Sky Harbor International in Phoenix, AZ, her son documented the aftermath as the TSA, Southwest Airlines and Phoenix Police threaten him with arrest for filming the ordeal. Officials seem more concerned with the video than with the woman brought to tears at the security checkpoint.

NPPA Comes Out Against Criminalizing Photographers

Yesterday, the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) issued a press release detailing their objection to the TSA’s poster depicting a photographer as a potential terrorist:

“Photography by itself is not a suspicious activity, and is protected by the First Amendment. Unfortunately the reliance by law enforcement officers to question, detain and interfere with lawful activities by photographers under the guise of preventing terrorist activities has become a daily occurrence. The abridgement of a constitutionally protected activity because of that erroneous belief is only reinforced by your generalized statements and the depiction of photography as some sinister act.”
