    Parents call for TSA to review frisking after kid gets pat-down

    Mom posted video to YouTube, described process as groping

    NBC, and news services
    BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — A Kentucky couple wants the TSA to change how it screens children after their 6-year-old daughter was frisked at the New Orleans airport.

    Selena Drexel told ABC's "Good Morning America" Wednesday the family was returning home from a vacation earlier this month when their daughter Anna was selected for a pat-down. She said she asked for her daughter to be re-scanned, but was refused.


    This is video in the article showing the groping err frisking. The TSA should be ashamed of itself.

    I object to the whole nude-o-scope and grope fiasco, and I applaud any movement toward increased scrutiny of those who have a higher likelihood of being terrorists and letting the average traveler pass without close examination. That being said, I watched the video and thought the pat down of the child was done correctly. If the child is traumatized by the experience, it will probably be because the parent made a big deal of it.
