TSA Asks 90 Yr Old Woman to Remove Shirt & Bra
Over the weekend a 90 year old female passenger was asked by Portland Airport TSA to remove her blouse and bra.
It’s not quite as bad as it sounds — she was apparently carrying a few extra dollars in a pocket she had sewn into her bra and it set off the body scanners. And the additional screening was done in a private room. Still, there had to be a better solution than making her strip from the waist up.
So what can we learn from this? Since the TSA been known to overstep the bounds as well as not even know their own policies, be very aware of what you’re carrying. Don’t give them any reason for an extra pat down — check all your pockets, even the secret ones, skip the glitter and leave the grenade gag gift at home.
