TSA Denies Forcing 95-Year-Old To Drop Diaper

Airplane Ja-rama!

It seems like every month we hear another crazy story about TSA and their rigid travel regulations.

This month it was when we told you about the little old lady who claims she was forced to remove her adult diaper.

Well now TSA is denying the accusations saying they gave her a number of choices to pass inspection with and diaper removal is the one she chose.

TSA released a statement Sunday night saying:

We have reviewed the circumstances involving this screening and determined that our officers acted professionally, according to proper procedure and did not require this passenger to remove an adult diaper. Various options to proceed through the checkpoint were presented to the passenger and her daughter during private screening to resolve an anomaly discovered during a pat down. Although TSA did not request it, the daughter ultimately chose to remove the adult diaper in a bathroom and return to the checkpoint.

Um, if that's true, we don't even want to know what the other options were.

We realize the Transportation nazis Security Administration enacts certain procedures for our protection, but did they really think granny had some liquid explosives in that thing!?!

    OKay, I'm not gunna argue about weather they did or didn't follow procedure. I bet ya they did. It's the freaking procedure that's the problem! Whatever happened to probable cause? The constitution says that I am protected against unreasonable searches and seizures. How the hell are they getting away with this?

    They are getting away with it because flying is a privledge not a right. You don't have to be allowed to fly. And honestly, the unsuspecting, aka the very elderly and the very young are who a terroist would pick. They would be most likely able to get through security without issue and cause damage and they would be out of mind to not realize they were taken advantage of. It is a sad fact of our society.

    Ok, if in fact her diaper was wet, TSA did her a SOLID by asking her to change it. Who wants to ride on the plane with pissy panties?

    Re: Samtra – What, you gunna say next that driving a car is a privledge? Owning a house is a privledge? I think we'll look back one day and ask ourselves how we managed to loose all our rights and realize that it started in our airports. I'm not just going to bend over and take it.

    Come on Perez, at least get the name of the agency correct. It's 'Transportation Security Administration' NOT 'Travel Security Association'. You can't just make up a name if you don't know it. !d!ot

    Re: Samtra – Exactly! Terrorists adapt quite easily to changes in procedure and if certain types or groups of people are excluded from searches - you can bet your butt the terrorists will use that to their advantage.

    Ok - if all your knowledge of the TSA is garnered from this site - I can understand why you wallow in ignorance. Check out the TSA website - there are OPTIONS! Yes, options. You may refuse any and all searches at the cost of not flying. The TSA has limited powers. L I M I T E D. Searches and investigations may only be conducted when a flight is threatened. (new SOP - check it out). All other suspicious activities are under the jurisdiction of local law enforcement. Flying is NOT a right. Sorry.

    Re: Mel354 – National security doesn't cause you lose your rights. You as a US citizen are guaranteed the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Notice the first on the list is life? The lives of our people have to come first. And a secure Nation maintains your rights, it doesn't take them away. A terrorist however, some of them also US citizens, would dearly love to take all three from you.

    @Mel354 Actually driving a car is a privilege. You have to follow the rules of the road. Owning a house is a privilege. You have to have the money or a good credit score to get a loan. No one is entitled to these things. You have to earn them. No one is going to give you a house or a drivers license.

    Re: Mel354 – Mel, both of your examples are absolutely privliges.

    People want it both ways….safety and comfort. Well, this isn't a Lexus, it's a massive passenger jet operation shuttling millions of people a day around the globe. I think airport security does an absolutely OUTSTANDING job.

    This story is so stupid. Yah it sucks that a 95 year old woman had to take off her diaper but this is the way of life now. I've been searched. Sure I scratch my head and wonder why but at the same time I think they are doing their jobs and keeping all passengers safe. It takes maybe 5 minutes out of my travel time. SO WHAT. Everyone is saying that the constitution should protect our rights. When our safety is compromised in a major way our rights don't matter. What matters is the safety of all the passengers traveling through the sky.

    Well, this sordid story just keeps on a-changin'.
