KFI: The TSA has created a new, more invasive process for airport pat-downs.
For a long time officials had the options of 5 different types of physical pat-downs in the screening lines. The new method is supposed to streamline the whole process.
Those selected for a pat-down will be subject to more rigorous searches. According to a notice at Denver International Airport, the searches “will be more thorough and may involve an officer making more intimate contact than before.”
TSA spokesman Bruce Anderson said:
“I would say people who in the past would have gotten a pat-down that wasn’t involved will notice that the new pat-down is more involved.”
So if you didn’t notice your genitals being groped before, don’t worry, you will now.
