The TSA gets my two cents...

We keep hearing these stories about the TSA and how they subjected this person to this type of treatment, and how outrageous it is.  I believe the latest stories involve a three-year old girl and a 95-year old having to remove her adult diaper.

I personally have no problem with this, and here is why.

The minute that the TSA starts to make an exemption for a certain type of passenger, it will become the number one way to exploit the security measures.

If the TSA announces that they will no longer search people with adult diapers, then that is exactly how contraband will make it through security.

Don't think for one second that if the TSA won't search children under three, that there won't be some sicko out there who will use that to his or her advantage.  We have seen much, much worse being done over the course of history; why would it stop now?

Yes, there is a line, and we should respect that human beings have a certain level of dignity to expect.  I also think that we really need to stop getting so outraged at the fact that, in 99% of the cases, these people are doing their job.  The minute we relax is when it will all happen again.
