Poop Bombs at the Airport?
There has been a recent uproar over a picture of an infant being patted down at the Kansas City Airport security. A Kansas City pastor took a picture of this incredulous scene and posted it up on his Twitter.
TSA responded on their blog:
The caption used with the photo is “TSA Looking for Poop Bombs?” We reviewed the screening of this family, and found that the child’s stroller alarmed during explosives screening. Our officers followed proper current screening procedures by screening the family after the alarm, who by the way were very cooperative and were on the way to their gate in no time. The child in the photo was simply receiving a modified pat-down which doesn’t even come close to what the headline implies.
We think that it’s necessary to implement these procedures, but when does it become too much?
