66. that what she SAYS, all right
Edited on Sun Dec-04-11 06:45 PM by pitohui
after reading this article i still don't understand if what she SAYS has any relationship with what actually happened -- SHE says she was strip searched and injured and had to receive medical treatment, and there is no record of ANY of this, is everybody lying except her?

in fact the TSA replies that she WASN'T strip searched and it was by HER request that she was patted down in private instead of in the public area -- i always request to be patted down in the public area, it's faster and then there can be no "he said, she said" -- if you are concerned that TSA is going to do something hinky in the pat-down why would you want to go into a private area?

there is also no record of the supposed medical treatment?

i don't like being searched either but yes, solo women travelers are considered to be suspicious for whatever reason, i suppose we are believed to be suggestible, we're gonna get searched and maybe making a scene about it is her form of protest but i think it's a pretty useless one in this situation, they're still gonna search solo travelers, no matter how pitiful they look and act

maybe she's hoping for a lawsuit lottery but i don't think she is going to have much luck, maybe i'm just not devious enough to figure out how i can get my 15 minutes out of being searched
