TAMPA, Fla. -- They've been called molesters, threatened with violence and ordered not to touch "my junk."
One woman headbutted a TSA officer who was searching her laptop. Other screeners report being punched, kicked and shoved during pat-downs. Security officers know the new searches are more invasive but want Thanksgiving travelers to keep in mind they are just doing their jobs to keep people safe.
"We just want the public to understand that we're not perverts," said screener Ricky D. McCoy, who heads a local TSA union for Illinois and Wisconsin.

Ok, I don't believe the TSA workers are perverts, at least not all of them. But them being perverts isn't the issue. The issue is that the searches shouldn't be going on in the first place. They are to invasive! They need a method that isn't so personal.
My friends, these pat-downs are inappropriate, and need to stop! Contact your leaders in office and sound off loud!
Feel free to leave your comments/thoughts on these pat-downs and the scanners....
