Blogger Reports TSA Agent Pulled Down Her Top

My niece Seton sent me a link to this rather horrifying blog entry by a young woman who says her tube top was pulled down by a female TSA agent in the Bozeman, Mont., airport, exposing her breasts to passengers and several male agents nearby. It seems pretty clear that it was an accident, but a careless and truly inexcusable one.

Some comments on her blog entry suggested that she should not have been wearing a tube top to fly. Nonsense. She can wear what she wants, even a strapless top. Besides, she had a hooded sweatshirt over it.

For years, my husband and I had a protocol when traveling with our daughter — one of us would pass through security ahead of her and the other behind her so that one of us would always be on the same side with her. There were just too many stories about young women being singled out for attention, especially before the TSA replaced private guards.

The kid is 24 now, travels alone all the time and knows how to take care of herself. But if someone did that to her, whether it was an accident or not, they would still face the unholy wrath of this Mom.

    I can’t imagine what the TSA agent would have been doing in this patdown to cause this woman’s tubetop to fall down. This agent must have been pretty careless.

    What makes it worse is that the agent wouldn’t let this woman leave after humiliating her in front of who knows how many people. To be fored to stand there with EVERYBODY staring at you, AFTER they’d ALL seen your breasts fully exposed, would only add to the humiliation.

    Some people just can’t handle any form of authority or power over others.

    And if I were her, I wouldn’t worry about firing this one agent so much, but I would sue the agency.
