I have a young friend that was strip searched two years ago by the TSA. She is a heavy girl (probably 60 pounds overweight), and was pleading and crying to be left alone, and they ignored her pleas and made her strip down to her undies (in a private room). She hasn't flown since. Really did a number on her. It's very, very sad. People claim that this is NOT sexual molestation - and they are WRONG. If you saw my friend's mental state when she talks about this, you'd see how damaging this is. Me personally, I am losing hope in this government. I have written letters to senators and congress, and what comes back is a form letter, explaining how the congress critters are always keeping American safety a priority. They don't even read these letters - just send out a mindless response. It's enough to make an American patriot lose all hope.
