You can presume what you like about me and call me whatever you like disguised with smiley emoticons but I wouldn't line my children up to receive this treatment.
I don't need to fear monger, the bizarre TSA scenarios and people's blind acceptance of them are scary enough.
i do apologize for my rhetoric and despicable name calling.
nonetheless. i do stand firm on the need to be impartial and the need to search everyone to ensure that no one manages to get explosives on board that will endanger the lives of passengers.
i also hope that in time, with advancement of tech, we do not have to subject ourselves to physical pat downs or have our embarrassing contours displayed.

This is the saddest thing I have ever seen. For a child to travel within the country, she must show papers, get a naked photo taken and doused with radiation, or get her genitals fondled by the United States Gestapo. I hope this video goes viral to wake the sleeping American Public to the police state we live in.

What exactly do you expect them to do? Three points:
1) Like it or not there are people who can and will use children and our sensitivities to them against us by hiding items on their bodies. There are a fair amount of people in the world who would do some very sick things to a child to accomplish the aims of the almighty god.
2) This is far from "groping", by definition.
3) If the issue is that it's the government doing it, fine, I tend to agree and I'm no government apologist. However, if we removed the government and required airport owners and airlines themselves to provide their own security (which would be fine with me) provided they took the burden should they miss anything, it would be whatever security company these companies would hire doing the exact same thing.
Would it be different if it was a private company?

Terrible ... just Terrible...
but .. if she were Muslim...
According to CAIR, the TSA’s new “enhanced pat down” policy should be limited to searching only around Muslim women’s head and neck if they are wearing a hijab and that Muslims objecting to the enhanced full-body scans have the right to request the pat-down procedure be done in a private place
what a backwards world we live in..
