i understand wanting to be safe, i do. however, i do NOT want to walk through a machine which takes a naked picture of me that goddess only knows who gets to see. i do NOT want some stranger touching my breasts or my genitalia.
first the breast prosthesis (see my posting from yestreday) and now this. it's UNACCEPTABLE. are they going to drive us all to take the train?
how many more stories are there like this we don't know about (yet)?
TSA pat-down leaves traveler covered in urine
By Harriet Baskas Travel writer
A retired special education teacher on his way to a wedding in Orlando, Fla., said he was left humiliated, crying and covered with his own urine after an enhanced pat-down by TSA officers recently at Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
“I was absolutely humiliated, I couldn’t even speak,” said Thomas D. “Tom” Sawyer, 61, of Lansing, Mich.
Sawyer is a bladder cancer survivor who now wears a urostomy bag, which collects his urine from a stoma, or opening in his stomach. “I have to wear special clothes and in order to mount the bag I have to seal a wafer to my stomach and then attach the bag. If the seal is broken, urine can leak all over my body and clothes.”...............
