TSA denies having required a 95-year-old woman to remove diaper
CNN ^ | 6/27/11 | CNN Wire Staff

Posted on 06/27/2011 7:38:06 PM PDT by Nachum

(CNN) -- The Transportation Security Administration has denied that its agents required a 95-year-old woman to remove her adult diaper last week before allowing her to pass a screening checkpoint at Northwest Florida Regional Airport.

"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 Sunday night in a statement. "We have reviewed the circumstances involving this screening and determined that our officers acted professionally, according to proper procedure and did not require this passenger to remove an adult diaper."

A response released earlier Sunday by the TSA said that the agency had reviewed the circumstances "and determined that our officers acted professionally and according to proper procedure."

The woman's daughter, Jean Weber, told CNN on Monday that the TSA agents acted professionally and never ordered the removal of her mother's diaper. However, Weber said the agents made it clear that her mother could not board the plane unless they were able to inspect the diaper.

agents made it clear that her mother could not board the plane unless they were able to inspect the diaper.

the options offered them were to remove the diaper or "she was not going to get on the plane."

How do these people lie with a straight face?

Why was a leukemic woman’s diaper of interest to the TSA?

Answer: There were no little girls or playmates to fondle.

I don’t know what it is exactly, you may be very accurate here for all I know. My concern is what happens as the accurate figure grows. If it’s this bad now, what will it be like when doubled, tripled?

Now is the time to think about that.

We are going to diversify ourselves right out of existence if we’re not careful. We’re certainly on the path to that right now.

All right now, it is not just white folks who are getting thugged at the airports. Last time I flew the line was about half and half. ALL grannies in line were getting felt up, black and white. Doesn’t matter. The only ones who are getting a pass are young arab males.

barak may hate white folks, but his stasi is not discriminating. They are picking on the path of least resistance.

That is exactly what they are hoping for. They are intentionally proving the peace loving American public into enough rage to create a public event.

Only then, do they have the excuse to bring in heavy fire power, revoke even more of our freedoms, and shove us all into the cages they have prepared.

Needs to be much more subtle than that... Remember their face, follow them after their shift and take care of business “off the record”.

The media have not reported the more unpleasant aspects of TSA screening. You have to go to blog sites to read private comments about what is really happening. For those who wear security pads for incontinence, the TSA wants to verify there is nothing hidden in the pads. People were warning about that months ago.

LOL. Then you have taken the issue from one of mass protest to a conspiracy to commit a crime. Much worse. AND still they will use the attack(s) as a pretense to implement their agenda. Even if such an attack is construed as a random jihad-style act of terror, they will become even more brutal. That, all of which is noted, you have said as much on this forum. Keep in mind, that I know for a fact that these conversations are monitored by the TSA, Military Intel, and the FBI.

They have the software to track down any ISP and find any user on this forum. What you consider idle banter, they are now looking at ways to use it against dissent. There is only one way to combat this thuggery. Organize as our opponents have. There are more of us. We can take back the courts, school rooms, college professorships, local councils, and other roles of leadership. We can no longer afford to sleep through this. Organize in greater numbers. Fund raise. Use our numbers as our strength. We can boycott airlines. We can sue their unions. We can video them as they come and go. We can find out anything that they think they can find out about us. And we can do it better.

I really can’t think of a good reason to fly anymore and I don’t. It seems like a method of punishment rather than a method of travel.

I flew today. Got pulled from line for a “random” search. The jackasses torn all of my stuff out of the bags and examined EVERY piece of it. Here is the kicker, they never patted me down. Some sort of training exercise. I made the mistake of giving my Alpha male eye to one of the pervs and that is what I got.

Of course they’re professionals; they’d paid to do what the do. Prostitutes are professionals as well. TSA freaks are infinitely worse, since they’re molestations are not voluntary.

The last part of the article is interesting and telling - in that they will wiggle when pushed:
(snipping it)

More recently, outrage erupted over a video-recorded pat-down of a 6-year-old passenger last April ...... Pistole addressed this controversy ......last week, explaining the pat-down was ordered because the child had moved while passing through a body imaging machine. He told committee members that "we have changed the policy (so) that there'll be repeated efforts made to resolve that without a pat-down."
The next day, TSA spokesman Greg Soule said that the new policy -- which will apply to children age 12 and younger -- was in the process of being rolled out.

So when are we getting diaper-waivers for those over 90?

Not to be gross, but this whole TSA thing is gross

Do they make women who are menstruating remove their pads?

And if they don't...why not?

Why make an example of a 95 yr old woman to take off an adult diaper when 25% of the female population going through those lines most likely have the same type of product in the same area?
