Gee, who’d have thought.
A married mother was subjected to repeated body scanning at an airport after being told by one employee that she had a ‘cute’ figure.
Ellen Terrell was travelling with her husband Charlie when she was stopped by airport security and told she had been ‘randomly selected’ for screening by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
Mrs Terrell, from Dallas, Texas, believes that she was exploited and felt ‘totally exposed’ for the benefit of male employees viewing the scanned images, which give a detail image of the naked body, in a back room.
After being made to stand in the machine, which uses radiaton, for a third time, Mrs Terrell heard the female employee say into her microphone: ‘Guys, it is not blurry, I’m letting her go.’
You were warned about this machine’s potential for abuse. New machines don’t use nude images. It uses a generic cartoon.
