Pilots, flight attendants lead public opposition to intrusive new measures
TSA employee reportedly admitted pat-down involving touching of genitals meant to intimidate people into using body scanners
As public anger grows over the TSA’s body scanners and intrusive new airport pat-down procedure, a Web site is urging travelers to “opt out” from the body scanners and instead choose to have a pat-down in public view, so that everyone can “see for themselves how the government treats law-abiding citizens.”
OptOutDay.com declares November 24 to be the day when air travelers should refuse to submit to a full body scan and choose the enhanced pat-down — an option many travelers have described as little short of a molestation.
