Dislaimer: I don't know the context, and I don't know if this video is legitimate, but here it is and it doesn't look good:
Does this make the public safer?
Stay tuned, updates will follow.
A disturbing video surfaced on Friday night showing what appears to be a TSA agent strip searching a young boy, with his father standing nearby. The video, which was uploaded to Youtube by user lukemtait, was filmed while a boy was randomly selected to undergo a random security check.The video’s description read, “Lets get the facts straight first. Before the video started the boy went through a metal detector and didn’t set it off but was selected for a pat down. The boy was shy so the TSA couldn’t complete the full pat on the young boy. The father tried several times to just hold the boys arms out for the TSA agent but i guess it didn’t end up being enough for the guy. I was about 30 ft away so i couldn’t hear their conversation if there was any. The enraged father pulled his son shirt off and gave it to the TSA agent to search, thats when this video begins.”

hildren being strip searched for weapons of mass destruction:
Now a video has emerged that shows TSA officials virtually strip-searching a young boy in full view of the public.It is not clear where the incident took place, but the video was uploaded to Youtube today.It shows a boy who appears to be less than ten years old with his shirt removed while a male TSA official runs his fingers up and down his legs as well as inside the waistband of his pants.The child is eventually allowed to put his shirt back on and continue towards his flight and we are all safer because of it.Or are we?
