If I were these women, or even a relative of these women, I would demand the names of the TSA agents responsible and add them to the biggest lawsuit the Government had ever seen….
Now Three Grandmas Say They Were Strip-Searched at JFK
TSA did not immediately respond to ABC News requests for comments about the incidents. A TSA blog said that “TSA does not include strip searches in its protocols,” and also said that Zimmerman was not strip searched. The TSA declined to answer a question from the Orlando Sentinel about whether there were instances when passengers were required to remove clothing.
Law enforcement officials confirmed to ABC News that the women were strip searched by TSA agents.
A senior law enforcement official who has worked at New York’s JFK airport for years told ABC News that the incidents expose the security agency to mockery.
“Any law enforcement professional with any time experience would tell you that if you can’t tell the difference between an 80-year-old with a health issue and someone who might need further screening, then this kind of behavior makes us the laughing stock of law enforcement worldwide,” said the senior official. “These [passengers] were only guilty of buying a ticket.”
