You had to know the new TSA "enhanced pat down" at airports was coming. Sure, there are terrorists out there who want us dead. But the TSA is molesting children, teens and grannies without being able to demonstrate in any way that this gross violation of our Fourth Amendment is improving air travel safety. Below is a video of a bladder cancer survivor who was "patted down" so aggressively that his ostomy bag came loose and spilled urine on his clothes.
There is also a video of a child being stripped to search under his shirt and a video of a mom who says her pat down amounted to being molested.
There is also the case of the American Airlines flight attendant who is a breast cancer survivor who was forced to remove her prosthetic breast during a pat down. She is a 32 year veteran of American Airlines. No video on her yet but if I find one I will post it.
Of course, you can always elect to go through the full body scanner instead of a pat down. That works unless the scanner goes off, then a pat down is mandatory or you can't fly. And if you decide not to fly and leave the airport you can be fined $11,000. So which third world country are we living in?
The government says the scanners are "safe," no danger from excessive radiation. Yeah, right. How many times has the government declared something safe only to remove it from the market a few years later claiming it's now a hazard? If you are a frequent flier you should be very concerned about being irradiated.
And they won't save any scanner images? Well, there's one case where 30,000 of them were saved, along with names and other personal information.
This is just another incident of the snake oil salesmen occupying the end of Pennsylvania Ave stealing yet another freedom. The public is always willing to give up their rights if they can be scared into doing so. Don't act like sheep being led to the slaughter. The government has no right to molest you because you want to fly.
