TSA forces 95 year old cancer patient to take off her diaper.

What is the world coming to?

In the latest never ending uproar involving the TSA comes the story of 95 year old cancer patient who was forced to take off her diapers during at a routine pat down at Destin-Fort Walton Beach airport last weekend.

Argues the daughter of the patient, Jean Webber:

‘It’s something I couldn’t imagine happening on American soil.”

To which the TSA responded:

“While every person and item must be screened before entering the secure boarding area, TSA works with passengers to resolve security alarms in a respectful and sensitive manner,” the agency said in a statement Sunday. “We have reviewed the circumstances involving this screening and determined that our officers acted professionally and according to proper procedure.”

The incident apparently occurred when TSA agents noticed something suspicious along the elderly woman’s leg and demanded that she undergo a pat down.

It may turn out there was a legitimate reason why there was ‘something suspicious running down’ Ms Webber’s mother’s leg:

During the private patdown, Weber says, the agent came out of the room to tell Weber that her mother’s adult diaper had been soiled and couldn’t be checked properly, and they needed her to change it to finish the search.

Hmm. Indeed.

Argues Mrs Webber: “Nobody should feel the way I felt that day,” she told the Detroit News. “I’m not angry. The rules need to be changed.”

Is it ironic in our quest to ensure the skies are free from drama and sudden terrorism activity that we are now more than ever as a populace subjected to more on ground terrorism than anyone could have logically reasoned before the TSA was introduced to an unsuspecting public.

Aren’t you glad you’re now more secure?

    the worst part of this is how the drive for cash the whole ” just doing my job” excuse of these TSA people forces them to represent a faceless company that exsists only as paperwork regulations. SO many corporations these days are just like this. People lose their “humanity” and become drones acting out ink and paper rules all for a likely shitty paycheck. Wow… you could not pay me enough money to treat this woman like this. They must get some real desperate people applying for these jobs
