Daily News @ http://RevolutionNews.US – LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – A Kentucky couple said Wednesday that they want the Transportation Security Administration to change how it screens children after their 6-year-old daughter was frisked at the New Orleans airport.
the family was returning home from a vacation earlier this month when their daughter Anna was selected for a pat-down.
The couple posted a video of the search on YouTube. It shows a TSA agent patting down the child and explaining the procedure to the girl and her parents. The screener says that she will use the back of her hands on sensitive areas and will “put my hand in the waistband.”
Anna was confused by the search and started crying afterward because she thought she’d done something wrong.
Selena Drexel says such searches are inappropriate for children because they’re usually told not to let adults touch them in sensitive areas. she posted the video because she “had a very bad feeling that what happened was wrong.”
