Why Lomeli and Not the Other 49,999?
The unthinkable has befallen one of the TSA’s gate-rapists: he has not only been arrested in the performance of his “duties,” he’s actually facing charges.
Take a moment to recover: the shock immobilized me a good while, too. The Thieves and Sexual Assailants have pawed men, women and little kids for 19 very long, torturous years at Amerikan airports, plunging their hands up shirts and down britches, strip-searching grandmothers, chortling over naked passengers, stealing second base on the pretext that women hide bombs in their bosoms, and fondling boys. In short, the TSA hourly commits all manner of atrocity—and with nauseating impunity, too. Each time a victim cries “Rape!”, the agency’s blatantly false boilerplate claims that it “strives to treat every passenger with dignity and respect…” Adding insult to injury, it “investigates” itself and—surprise!—declares its sadists innocent. To choose one example from millions: after “British singer Morrissey said” that a “San Francisco TSA worker … went straight for my private bits and then he put his finger down my rear cleavage,” the TSA averred that its “officer followed standard operating procedures in the screening of this individual.”
Until now. For reasons no sane serf can fathom, the State of California and the TSA itself are denouncing one of the latter’s leches for what he is: a criminal.
This being the government, though, its immensely delayed justice doesn’t even begin to satisfy. For starters, prosecutors have charged 22-year-old Johnathon Lomeli not with molestation but with “one felony count of false imprisonment for intentionally and unlawfully detaining an individual through the use of fraud or deceit. ” Second, they imply that he and he alone of the TSA’s 50,000 goons is guilty of sexual assault. And for proof, they offer two specious, microscopic distinctions.
Which is to say that though a pale imitation of due process finally caught up with ol’ Johnathon, his fellow fiends may safely continue wallowing in depravity. I despise Lomeli as I do all the TSA’s brutes, but even I couldn’t blame him for asking, “Why me? Everyone else gets away with it!”
Lomeli kicked off his criminal career last summer at Los Angeles Inte
