This is not a safty issue, it is a ridicule issue. Twelve year olds have been strip searched, Women have been told to remove prosethic devices, ostomy bags have beenloosened from the body, and more. We are guilty until proven innocent and embarrised, sexually humilated and rideculed, all in the name of safety.

But the laggage goes on unchecked. We have lost our minds. When we do this kind of stuff, te enemy has won. Don't you se that. We have lost all of our freedoms. I tell you this, they are not feeling up my 8 year old granddaughter or sending her into any x-ray. We are not flying amy more until they stop this madness.

"Parents won’t necessarily be with their kids as they pass through the scanner or get patted down."

Anyone "screening" my kid will have me right there watching to make sure the screener isn't taking liberties. No way will I be separated from them for ANY kind of "pat down".
