    There is a video of this pat down that was one of the most invasive gropings that I've seen yet. I had the lifting and poking that many women reported but didn't have recorded.

    I came across the video embedded on the side of an article somewhere around May 20th but for some reason didn't save the link. There was an article from Airline Guru around that same time but it only had the photo. I couldn't find this on You Tube and I think it came from a news station in Chicago but not sure. The image is dated 11/17/10 so the original story is likely from the first two weeks of November. Anyone have the link for this?

    I was thinking of doing a screen capture of the video for a You Tube post of the most aggressive pat downs caught on video.

    The uniform probably dates it to 3+ years ago.

    Which, if I recollect correctly, puts it at about the time they started targeting women's breasts, and then backed off due to public outcry?

    Either way, still a good idea, Fisher1949.

    This procedure has been in place since 2002.

    Doesn't make it right.

    It was never a common procedure. Usually done for those who couldn't be screened by WTMD or HHMD.

    Whike traveling in Europe a few years back I saw it performed there, and even in Mexico a few years ago.

    Does this photo exist someplace where it can be linked? We need to comply with the posting policy for this forum:

    The screen captures would have to be presented in the context of the original videos.
