"I'm hoping by wearing a bikini they will see everything they need to see and we can avoid a pat-down"
Thousands of passengers are expected Wednesday at LAX, and one came prepared by leaving little to the imagination and TSA agents with even less to pat down. "I'm wearing my bikini," Corinne said as she unbuttoned her overcoat outside the terminal to reveal a black two-piece. "It's not that I'm concerned, it's that I feel like the TSA is making travelers feel uncomfortable, and I feel like we can have security measures that don't make people feel uncomfortable.
"Every time I go through security I always say, 'I don't even know why I got dressed this morning.' I end up taking off belts, jewelry and everthing else off anyway."
"I don't want to do a body scan, and I'm hoping by wearing a bikini they will see everything they need to see and we can avoid a pat-down, as well."
A loosely organized campaign by people opposed to the scanners has been encouraging travelers to opt-out of walking through the body scanners today as a protest of technology some consider overly invasive. But opting out of the scan means passengers will undergo time-consuming, thorough pat-downs by a Transportation Security Administration agent.
About 1.5 million people are expected to go through LAX during the Thanksgiving travel period that began last Friday and ends Sunday.
The body scan takes only about 10 seconds. Those who refuse the body scan are given the option of undergoing an open-palm, up the groin and between- the-breasts pat-down instead.
The mayor seemed ok with it.
"There's been a lot of ado about nothing," Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said after going through a scanner earlier this week.
Also known as Advanced Imaging Technology, the refrigerator-sized body scanners hit passengers with low-level x-ray beams to generate an image of their body to detect weapons that might be hidden under their clothing. The image -- which resembles a chalk etching -- is then transmitted to a walled-off location and immediately deleted after being examined by security officers.
RULES, gentlemen, please!
Said women putting her clothes back on.
That's because you're the mayor, douche bag. They're not going to cavity search your a$$. Talk about stuck on stupid.
I love the FR.
There was a caller on morning radio who said he was going in a T-shirt and boxers. (for the same reason)
Yeah right. Gone forever just like when you send a file to the recycle bin.
Watch the video....she flashes the reporter....
“America's exclusive site for God, Family, Country, Life & Liberty constitutional conservative activists!”
And now a thread seeming to advocate having our children!!! children dress up in bathing suits / underwear so they are able to be raped / molested / sexually assaulted easier by the sex crazed tyranical pervs -
And I see there is frothing, foaming at the mouth, crys and screams by the freepers for picture of more naked bodies, bodies of children maybe to -
It is like a scene out of the Bible - all the town at Lot's front door screaming to be let in so they could have it -
Guess all the porn is ok on FR or it would have been long gone by now.
