TSA vs. a young shirtless boy
The head of the agency responsible for airport security, facing protests from travelers and pressure from the White House, says TSA screening should be minimally invasive.
TSA’s John Pistole says in a statement released late yesterday the agency will work to make screening methods “as minimally invasive as possible.” Although he didn’t say if any changes are imminent.
The statement came just hours after Pistole told CNN that while the full-body scans and pat-downs could be intrusive and uncomfortable, they are necessary for security.
Each day we get more examples that seem to show the TSA is going too far. A young, shirtless boy facing TSA agents as he passed through security at Salt Lake International Airport is the newest video to raise concerns.
“Are they harassing a kid?” one man asks as he sees another guy shooting this video.
The Salt Lake Tribune has a description of what happened from the person who captured the TSA incident on his cell phone.
