If she didnt want her daughter's crotch grabbed then she should have let her walk through the x-ray plain and simple. There is a fine line between
standing up for something you believe in and being ridiculous. Seriously folks, I am sure if TSA wanted to grab someone's crotch for pleasure they
would've chosen someone more appropriate like a 17 yr old hottie in daisy dukes. I seriously doubt a pat down consists of grabbing a crotch unless
they feel something. My husband was a cop for 22 yrs. He has patted down hundreds of people and not once did he ever do it for pleasure. Get
real...this is ridiculous..
See i am inclinded to agree with you,
i dont doubt there are some bad people out there who take advantge of there position, much like driving instructors and other proffesions where trust
is a key part of there job, but surley the "groping" firstly comes from refusal to go through scanners or even then how else would you pat down
people if not... patting them down, liek surley you need to check the entire body if you need to pat people down otherwise anyone with any intent
would just hide things where the agents werent allowed to pat???
Furthermore... people like one mentioned with prosthetic limbs (or in this case breast) could quite easily use said things to hide things they
shouldnt have on the plane?
Remeber all this came from a public outcry that airport security wasnt safe enough..... where is the line exactly?
would these measures be alright on middle eastern people when its not ok on white people, being from the uk i dont travel more than once a year
(sometimes twice but never any more) by air, i feel i must be missing somthing here as we get patted down by bouncers before we enter clubs... males
patted down by males and females patted down by females.... is it not the most efficiant way of checking for devices.
looking back now... we were talking about this in work yesterday, think how dangerous an aircraft is (as a tool for destruction) and think about the
"war on terror" and tactics used by the opposition with children etc. in the middle east....in the 80's you could bring your tool kit on a plane if
you were an engineer, i know many people who have, can you not see the actual dangers of not vetting what goes on a plane??? or do we go back to the
eighties and have anyone bringing anything they want on the plane? where is line?
People dont want to go through a scanner, so there patted down.... the logical scenario... go through the scanner... when you fear you have somthing
wrong with you you get an x-ray right?? they are also bad for you, but you get soo few in a year you dont really think about it.. how often do you
travel?? so why have such an issue with going through a scanner?
