San Francisco International Airport
- true-to-you.net
29 July 2015

On leaving the US on 27 July I flew from San Francisco International Airport to London on flight BA 284.

At 2:30 in the afternoon I went through the usual airport security procedure including the stand-up 'scanner', and all was well - no bleeps and nothing unusual.

Before I could gather my belongings from the usual array of trays I was approached by an "airport security officer" who stopped me, crouched before me and groped my penis and testicles. He quickly moved away as an older "airport security officer" approached.

The officer who sexually assaulted me was identified as the General Manager On Duty. Luckily I was accompanied by two members of British Airways Special Services, who were horrified at the sexual attack and suggested that I lodge a complaint. I asked if there would be any point in lodging a complaint since, as with any complaint against a figure in "authority", the complaints are simply collected in order to protect the guilty officer should the matter go further. The British Airways Special Services employees assured me that a complaint was worthwhile, and so I filed the appropriate information. However, before doing so, the guilty "officer" was confronted, and the conversation went thus:

You have just sexually groped this man.
Officer: That's just your opinion.
What you have done is illegal.
Officer: That's just your opinion.
You have no right to do what you have just done.
Officer: That's just your opinion.

Apart from "that's just your opinion", he would not comment, even though, since the penis and testicles were mine and no one else's, then my opinion must surely have some meaning. But, of course, what the airport security officer was saying was: your opinion will never count in the eyes of the law. The words "that's just your opinion" volunteered themselves from this 'officer's' mouth before he had even heard the question. He knew he could be confronted, but he also knew that he could never be challenged (even though the entire incident is most certainly on CCTV camera).

In the interests of imperishable bureaucracy my submitted complaint against this 'officer' will obviously be either unread or ignored because, as we all know, on matters of officialism it is not possible to be pleasantly surprised by anything at all. However, what is clear is that, should you find yourself traveling through San Francisco International Airport, you should expect sexual abuse from the so-called 'security officers' who, we are unconvincingly warned, are acting only for our security.

Do people have minds?

Write a song about it and shut the f*** up. Unless you're a woman or a child, shit like this should be filed under "f***ed up shit happens. Get over it."

He wasn't raped. He wasn't hurt. He was...embarrassed. Yeah it's a violation of privacy but c'mon, man, you're gonna write a f***ing diatribe on the internet about it?

Why the f*** would anyone want to grope a 56 year old man's junk anyway? Gross. But that's just my opinion.

Jesus Christ, what the Hell is wrong with you???

Nobody should be subjected to unwanted sexual touching, no matter what their sex, age, or celebrity status.
I don't doubt for a minute there there are asshole perverts at these positions and that some just want to use their authority to feel up celebrities. It's totally disgusting and the people going through these searches are helpless.
If the story is true this person should be fired and charges should be pressed.
It's unacceptable behavior.

Surely you're statistically aware that the 'Fondler' more than likely does not confine his rummaging hands to 56 year old men, right? Every instance of this kind of thing should be reported. Who is to say a woman or child wasn't next? Moz being groped isn't the end of the world, but I'm a little surprised by your naïveté regarding perpetrators.

Also -- it hardly seems Morrissey is embarrassed by it, specifically because he wrote "a f***ing diatribe on the internet about it".

You could have done a much better job taking the piss on this one without diminishing being violated.

Dear Lord, sorry but I find this funny. I wonder if the officer is a fan.

Scary to think what an individual who will touch a grown man inappropriately in public would do in private. Moz absolutely did the right thing.

Another black eye for the Moz security team. The fat ass monkey is playing pocket pool while his boss is being sexually fondled by the TSA agent. I think there was a report that he had suitcases some cheese and they were just following up. Ask yourself why these things seem to only happen to Morrissey?

Welcome to the experience of standing in the GA floor of a Morrissey show, Morrissey. :rolleyes:

No but really, sorry you had that experience. No fun being groped, especially by someone you're lead to believe is supposed to protect you.

Morrissey's vulgar insult on stage doesn't diminish the seriousness of his statement on this topic. We have spent decades hauling sexual abusers before the courts and sincerely hope Morrissey will progress this to the full extent of the law if sufficient evidence is extant.

We thought you'd 'retired'? It's like the good old days with Viva and Skylarker dipping their toes back into the fetid pool. We trust you are well and you raise an interesting point about sexual molestation at gigs which allow 'fan pits' and other such manifestations of irrationality, putting audience safety behind the need of the singer to fantasise that they are subject to 'Beatlemania'. *rollseyes*. Has Morrissey ever had his penis and testicles groped on stage?
