TSA Pats Down Breast Cancer Survivor

Kwame Opam reports at Gizmodo:

"Lori Dorn, the wife of Laughing Squid's Scott Beale, recently submitted to a backscatter scan at JFK airport. The TSA pulled her aside for a breast patdown, even though she stated she had breast implants in place after her bilateral mastectomy. Of course, that didn't stop them.

They didn't even let her take out the Device Identification Card that would could have explained where the implants came from and their medical purpose."

This is just going to keep happening until patriotic Americans decide to start occupying airports instead of just financial districts and local townhalls. And coming up this week: I have a story of my own about a TSA encounter while traveling last week that left my blood boiling.
