They'll Apologize But Won't Stop Until We Force Them To Stop

TSA sorry about breast cancer survivor patdown

"NEW YORK - A breast cancer survivor said she was subjected to a humiliating public patdown at New York's Kennedy Airport even though she offered to produce documentation about her medical implants.

Business consultant Lori Dorn said on her website that the Transportation Security Administration patdown added insult to injury and humiliated her.

She was heading to San Francisco last week when a full-body scanner detected her prostheses.

She says the TSA agent refused to let her retrieve her medical documentation, and called over a female supervisor who told her the exam had to take place. "I was again told that I could not retrieve the card and needed to submit to a physical exam in order to be cleared," Dorn wrote.

"She then said, 'And if we don't clear you, you don't fly' loud enough for other passengers to hear. And they did. And they stared at the bald woman being yelled at by a TSA Supervisor. ...

"I have been through emotional and physical hell this past year due to breast cancer. The way I was treated by these TSA agents added a s---load of insult to injury and caused me a great deal of humiliation.

"At what point does the need for security eclipse human dignity and compassion?" Dorn wrote. "I can only comfort myself with the fact that Karma is always circular."

After posting the account on her web page, Dorn announced on her Twitter account that the general manager of Kennedy Airport had called her to apologize."

GM of Kennedy airport? Thats not TSA, this whole story sucks, that fact that this is still going on is fuck'n stupid. The woman, CANNOT be told she cant get her documentation. The fact that TSA refused this request is no legal. Any american has the right to produce identification of any documents that can be used to provide information about any fuck'n situation. Did the TSA offical say sorry? F everything about this. Where are all the MEN to say, hold on shithead in blue, you dont wear a gun, so your not a cop,i can take all day to provide identification.

Legalities don't mean anything anymore anon. This whole TSA crappola is all about intimidation and subjugation of the american population in the most degrading manner possible.
