Save TSA Titty-Twister Yukari Miyamae (Via-Facebook); Sexual Assault Suspect Compared to Rosa Parks

A campaign is underway via-Facebook to raise money to fund the defense of a Colorado woman -- lauded as a hero by many, and a villain by five -- who gave a Transportation Safety Administration agent a titty-twister at Sky Harbor International Airport last week and has since been charged with sexual assault.

Since 61-year-old Yukari Miyamae's Thursday arrest -- after "squeezing and twisting" a female TSA agent's breast, according to court documents obtained by New Times -- a Facebook page titled "Acquit Yukari Mihamae" (court docs have the woman's name spelled "Miyamae") has been created with the goal of bringing awareness to her case and hopefully raise money to fund her legal defense.

So far, the page has 736 "fans."

In contrast, another page has emerged titled "Convict Yukari Mihamae." That page as a total of five "fans."

On the "Acquit" page, fans have dubbed Miyamae as "the 21st century Rosa Parks."

Other "fans" went a different direction.

"That sounds like some of the best girl on girl action I've heard of in a long time," writes Jonathan Mollet, an architecture student at North Dakota State University.
