Hideous Woman Forced to Remove Nipple Piercings


LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Texas woman who said she was forced to remove a nipple ring with pliers in order to board an airplane called Thursday for an apology by federal security agents and a civil rights investigation.

“I wouldn’t wish this experience upon anyone,” Mandi Hamlin said at a news conference. “My experience with TSA was a nightmare I had to endure. No one deserves to be treated this way.”

Hamlin, 37, said she was trying to board a flight from Lubbock to Dallas on Feb. 24 when she was scanned by a Transportation Security Administration agent after passing through a larger metal detector without problems.

The female TSA agent used a handheld detector that beeped when it passed in front of Hamlin’s chest, the Dallas-area resident said.

Hamlin said she told the woman she was wearing nipple piercings. The agent then called over her male colleagues, one of whom said she would have to remove the jewelry, Hamlin said.

Hamlin said she could not remove them and asked whether she could instead display her pierced breasts in private to the female agent. But several other male officers told her she could not board her flight until the jewelry was out, she said.

She was taken behind a curtain and managed to remove one bar-shaped piercing but had trouble with the second, a ring.

“Still crying, she informed the TSA officer that she could not remove it without the help of pliers, and the officer gave a pair to her,” said Hamlin’s attorney, Gloria Allred, reading from a letter she sent Thursday to the director of the TSA’s Office of Civil Rights and Liberties. Allred is a well-known Los Angeles lawyer who often represents high-profile claims.

Applying pliers to the torso of a mannequin that had a peach-colored bra with the rings on it, Hamlin showed reporters at the news conference how she took off the second ring.

She said she heard male TSA agents snickering as she took out the ring. She was scanned again and was allowed to board even though she still was wearing a belly button ring.

“After nipple rings are inserted, the skin can often heal around the piercing, and the rings can be extremely difficult and painful to remove,” Allred said in the letter.

TSA officials said they are investigating to see whether its policies were followed.

“Our security officers are well-trained to screen individuals with body piercings in sensitive areas with dignity and respect while ensuring a high level of security,” the agency said in a statement.

WOW!  Somehow when I saw this story making the rounds on the internet this morning, I imagined the woman in question would be much much hotter.  This chick looks like Rockbiter from the Never Ending Story.  I hope she learns a valuable lesson from all this.   Namely, hideous she-beasts who pierce their naughty bits should stick to riding the bus.

  1. Rockbiter! Good call.

  2. This is a disgusting incident. You can ridicule all you want, but what the woman does to her body is her own business. Yes, I respect your right to ridicule this situation, but I do hope you realise that she does not really deserve that kind of treatment in any way. She had her privacy invaded and her rights treated like shit, like nothing.

    Isn’t there a sort of pattern here? We should all take note of the fact that terrorism is an exaggerated threat that has very suspicious origins. The mainstream explanation: terrorism is predominantly from foreign Islamic radicals who are anti-American and are a real threat, so the government institutes legal and political measures of security to protect us. But the further one looks into it, the further one will see the walls of lies crumble away to reveal something far more “interesting”…

    Is there a sort of pattern here? Look at this. If you can’t believe what you’re reading, look it up on Google or something; you’ll find it in multiple sources… Here goes:

    “Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will pledge with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government.”

    Something is funny there. Telling us about an outside threat, real or promulgated… equals the infamous Islamic terrorists?

    Terrorism is the threat here that they are using to prod us on to willingly cheer for such things as the Patriot Act and the Homeland Security Act and NDAA and SOPA. Or at least that’s what they’re trying to do. Therein is the pattern. Suddenly we have been taught to fear and we then have been “gifted” with such lovely things as the aforementioned legal measures that have been passed that drag us further and further into what is to come. And we are generally okay with it. We are happy with it and actively support it. Or we’re indifferent and passive. And a few select are outraged. RIGHTFULLY SO.

    And what is to come? How is this tying in to this TSA incident? Things like TSA are everyday things that, like the aforementioned acts, slowly condition and actually bring us closer and closer for what they are planning. We are becoming the proverbial Amerika. Things like TSA condition us to make us believe bullshit treatment like this is okay. Fifty years from now, this type of B.S. would have been unacceptably outrageous. But here we are saying it’s for our own good.

    It’s not okay. We are getting our privacy, our rights, our freedom…. all stripped away from us, slowly, somewhat subtly. There is something at play here, and it is not pretty.

    The woman was treated absolutely unacceptably and TSA is a completely disgusting and WRONG institution. They have no constitutional right to look at our naked bodies like we’re all criminals that should be stuffed into Guantanamo or something. They have no right to fondle us like child molesters. They have no right to humiliate people using Gestapo-esque techniques like was described in this article. Yes, look it up. Read up on your history and make some comparisons. They are using Nazi, extreme right-wing, dictatorial tactics, that place us right under the crushing submission of their jackboot.

    Question more; use your brain and think about it.

  3. ‘Half ninja’ ? What kind of name is that ? These blasian nicknames are gettin crazier and more stereotypical by the day ! Hahaha
