TSA Takes “Naked” Body Scan that Reveal all of 12 Year Old Girl Without Parents Present… Since When is This Legal?
WTF!!! So taking revealing pics of 12 year olds is OK without parental consent? That’s correct, let’s pick the 12 year old girl out of the line and subject her to a full body scan but let the 22 year old male from Yemen to pass through unscathed.
So we are supposed to trust the TSA, huh?
Since when is taking revealing, naked pics of 12 year old girls legal? In most every other venue and instance such an act would be considered child porn. However, not with the TSA. So it’s ok for the TSA to do wht is in essence strip searches of 12 year old girls without their parents present? That is exactly what happened to a Baltimore, MD family and their 12 year old daughter.
There’s been lots of talk lately about body scanners — the new airport security tool that allows screeners to see through clothes. People are concerned about privacy, delayed flights, health effects.
Now there’s another concern. What about kids? Do they have to go through this, too? And what are parents’ rights?
A Baltimore family is raising the issue after their 12-year-old daughter was pulled out of line in Tampa and subjected to what they say was an embarrassing and unhealthy scan. The girl was traveling with an adult friend of the family, not her parents.
Question, how does the TSA random pick a 12 year old girl and single her out to be a potential terrorist? Seriously, a 12 year old? Anyone can be picked? Sorry, but how many terrorists who took part in 911 or failed bombings like the underwear bomber were 12 year old little girls? PC will kill us and this BS must end now.
Sari Koshetz, a spokeswoman for the Transportation Security Administration, said anyone can be selected from the line and given a body scan, even children, as long as they can hold their arms over their heads for five or more seconds.
But parents may opt out of the body scan for themselves or their children and receive a patdown by an officer instead. Koshetz said there are signs saying everyone has the option to reject the screening, though at TIA there is one sign per machine.
The 12 year old tells her story.
Okay, I was coming home to Baltimore, Md., from Siesta Key, Fla., and I was with my friend and her parents and I was going to this airport security check.
I put my bag through, and they pulled me aside and told me to go over here. I thought it was some high-tech scan and I walked right through it and this lady said ‘”Hold on, you can’t just walk through this thing. Put your feet on the yellow footsteps and make a triangle above your head.” I guess it was so they could see my whole body.
I heard a beep and she said, “Okay you can leave.”
