95-Year-Old Woman Has to Remove Adult Diaper at Airport Security Check


A 95-year-old woman suffering from cancer now had to remove her adult diaper at an airport in Florida. The Transportation Security Administration agents forced her to do so after the pat down.

According to the TSA, the officers "acted professionally and according to proper procedure", but the woman´s daughter complained that the procedures should be changed.

"My mother is very ill, she has a form of leukemia. She had a blood transfusion the week before, just to bolster up her strength for this travel," the daughter said. "If this is your procedure, I also feel that your procedure needs to be changed."

Stinks! Pardon the pun.

On site incinerators used to be at every airport and even schools. I am appalled to read that a airports are not equipped to deal with such matters. Pathetic!

I heard about this story on the radio. There are a few details that weren’t mentioned in the summary…

Apparently the woman soiled herself during the pat-down. The TSA agents wanted the lady to remove her diaper, but she explained that she soiled herself and didn’t want to remove it. She explained that she didn’t have an extra diaper on her person and if she took it off, she didn’t have another to replace it.

This is terrible. I understand the TSA is trying to keep us safe, but c’mon… you have to let common sense and decency prevail in times like these. She’s 95!

And, yes, ahhhhhhhhh is correct.
When Bush was president, everyone complained about how “horrible” it was to have to take off your shoes and take your laptop out of its case.
Since Obama took office, we have “peeping tom” scanning devices and these over-the-top procedures. These procedures did not take place until Obama took office and made Janet Napolitano the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

"Since Obama took office, we have “peeping tom” scanning devices and these over-the-top procedures."

These scanning devices you speak of have been used in the ´war on terror´ (AOR) for years. Like most military technologies, use in the civilian sector is inevitable. However, feel free to blame whoever you want.

  Well, since Arnie blames Obama  
for this

then sure, blame Ike!

I am blaming the Native Americans.

I know he was lumping me into that group. That was to be expected.
What I *didn´t* expect was his attack on Obama and Ben.
Heh. The love affair is over.

  Last night on PBS, Historys Mysterys,  
They showed how during WW II the OSS forged stacks of German postage stamps, got a bunch of German Mailbags and German phone books. "They" wrote personal letters to all the Germans in the books telling of the [ficticious] secret / banned political party that was against the war and how Adolph was responsible for the plight of the people. Then the Allies bombed a mail train, dropped the bags full of letters onto the train which the Jerrys then cleaned up and - delivered the mail.

At the end of the war most Germans knew of this "banned" political party...

So today we have people like Arnie who blame Obama for the destruction of the American economy and the abuses of the TSA. However he can´t explain the link I posted above showing how the economy lost what, 15 TRILLION dollars under Bush and never began the upswing until January when Obama was inaugerated??? Remember McCain suspending his campaign to return to DC to deal with the Free Falling Economy?

So if Obama was President why was McCain campaigning?

The YSA training link to YouTube: poke around, no end of Pre Obama posts by date of TSA abuses.

Keep flapping your lips Arnie, keep blaming that nigge - I mean MUSLIM Obama [we know you want to call him the N word, go ahead, just do it] and Nancy Pelosi. It shows us what a total retard you are and if anyone follows you, what equally week minds they have.

In the time it took for your housing market to collapse, my house doubled in value. Our banks are regulated, they never loose money, they never collapse. The only part of our economy that took a hit was the manufactoring sector in Ontario that is tied to their American divisions.

Take a very good look at Greece on the news Arnie: that is your very near future. If it confuses you as to why, study the graph AND dates on the link I posted above.

"However he can´t explain the link I posted above showing how the economy lost what, 15 TRILLION dollars under Bush..."
Sure I did. Your Alzheimer moments are becoming more frequent. You should get that checked out.
If you´d like to debate/discuss this in further detail, here´s the thread to have it:

No need to thank me. The pleasure was all mine.

"...keep blaming that nigge - I mean MUSLIM Obama..."
That was totally uncalled for and not the least bit cool. You should be ashamed of your racist self.

" house doubled in value."
I´m surprised to hear it went from $2 to $4; cardboard boxes usually don´t appreciate in value like that. Did you give it a fresh coat of canned spray paint?
  by: carnold     06/29/2011 11:07 PM     
  The rebuttles to  
your posting, I guess you never read them.

You can call me racist if you want but as you don´t see, Canada does not have the history of America so I´d base that on what - American media, Judge Joe, Judge Judy etc??? Quite the export you have going clear ´round the world for all to see.

I lived in downtown San Jose California for two years. I could easily go MONTHS at a time and never see another Caucasian other than my wife. I thought that was so cool.

But I watch American Media. I see the stuff going on that makes me shake my head. Here, we leave vehicles at the curb RUNNING when we go into a store. We can go away for a week, oops, I forgot to lock the house! Never a problem. Do you?

The most disgusting thing I saw on American Media was that drug addict, uh - Yeah - Rush Limbaugh mocking Michael J Foxes tremors then ne day on CNN in Clintons administration, a news conference by Robert Reich [or however you spell his name]. He had a camera there shooting him from the eyebrows up. Drug Boy was standing in front of the monitor trying to look down into it. And he claims to be a spokesman for the Republican Party!

We judge you on your actions. Judgement was passed LOOOONG ago my friend.
  by: mcink2   06/29/2011 11:30 PM     
"We judge you on your actions."

Great, then it should come as no suprise that your actions have earned you the infamous titles of Racist and Bigot.

You and your epithets have crossed a line that neither I nor any other Conservative on this site ever has.
Congrats on your new title.
  by: carnold     06/29/2011 11:36 PM     
  Oh, I forgot!  
Others judge you by your media too. Did you see Borat and how this guy from Parts Unknown Eastern Europe thought American women were whores? Now where would that idea come from?

Who else watches ~those~ movies? The Taliban who hates you? On 9/11 I saw on CNN Big Bubba in his bib overalls down yonder in Georgia crying away "I don´t know why they hate us so much".

Then I switched over to CBC Newsworld on Directtv and got the reason why. Try it some time: the Greek Riot Story may be an eye opener to you!
  by: mcink2   06/29/2011 11:37 PM     
Shouldn´t you be busy cutting eye-holes out of some white pillow-cases? Or burning a cross in someone´s yard?

That was a very distasteful and low-class thing you did. I think you owe the community an apology. There is never a reason for saying things like that.

This is my last response. Each time I finish clicking the Submit button, I feel like I should jump into a cauldron of boiling bleach to disinfect myself.

You´re wrong.

Second, you lost and third, you can´t admit it.

You see that episode of Maury? 14 year old girl had sex with a guy for a cheeseburger!

Wow - my American wife sure is glad she lives here.

You´ll be back pretending Obama tanked the American economy and every time I hear a Republican call Obama a Muslim - I´ll think of you.

Oh, and since we don´t have your history - where would we burn crosses? You likely aren´t aware of the American Mask Law either.

Don´t let Carnold get to you, he is way more prejudice against anyone who is liberal, just because it´s not a race does not make it ok.

  Well, I hope  
they did a thorough search of the diaper. Wouldn´t want to be around a fully loaded diaper when it explodes.

Also, I doubt she was a drug dealer. Shitty drugs don´t sell well.
  by: womenareviolent     07/01/2011 06:55 AM     
  On a personal note...  
I think the TSA should be abolished. The fact they think they can do whatever they want out of "security" is absurd.

On a side note, anytime CAnold or Shannon mentions something in this regard always gets ignored. The fact such blinded and one-sided people who refuse to do their own research from both sides and point fingers like a child should grow up.

“Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.” ~Benjamin Franklin
  by: SunDown   07/01/2011 09:04 AM     
I remember a story where the TSA held a guy for hours because he had a lot of cash in a strong box and wouldn´t tell them what it was for. He had gotten several thousand dollars in campaign contributions for his politician boss(maybe Ron Paul) and was just taking it back to the camp HQ but figured it was none of their damn business so he held his tongue. They were convinced that they had a drug dealer or something and kept threatening him with charges.

They are not the DEA or the IRS. They are not the de facto airport federal police department. They are in charge of transportation safety. Unless of course they thought he was gonna bribe the pilots to crash the plane they really need to mind their own business.
  by: VermiciousG     07/01/2011 09:35 AM     
  +1 for abolshing the TSA  
Bunch of scruffy lookin´ nerf herders. Next agent to grab my junk is getting a tiger knee directly in the solar plexus. I don´t care that it´s so large it puts godzilla to shame, that´s for me to experiment on late at night and for my wife to figure out 2-3 nights a week. LOL!

Either show links, or get your alzheimers medication refilled.

Yeah... I remember you being an Admin. The only admin "duties" you did were remove negative ratings from your dishonest Liberal buddies´ stories. You were one horrible and sucky Admin. I remember the site having a mini-celebration when you got the boot. The site was partying like Oz, after the house fell on the witch.

(Ding-dong, Lurker´s gone, Lurker´s gone, Lurker´s gone! Ding-dong, the worst admin *ever* is gone!)

  @ lurker and Carnold  
If both of you want, I can get you the honeymoon suite at the laquinta inn. Either that or both of you can compete in a 1 on 1 basketball match where I randomly place land mines on the court. Proceeds will go to pay off Lady Gagas "oops" she pulled with her non profit org.

  He makes broad brush statements  
Then walks away.

So what did you do on the weekend? Attend the Bell Ringing Re-enactment? Maybe you went to NYC to admire the statue of Liberty gifted to America by foreign countrys to warn them of socialism? Or, as my American wife said, go to San Antonio to visit the memorial built by Americans to warn the Spanish that you won´t give up your guns [I love that one].

Arnie, and other "Say it repeatedly so they´ll believe it" Right Wingers blame Obama for everything Bush created. So far the Best Hope to put up against Obama has been Palin who shows herself the complete fool every time she opens her mouth, and now Michele, who along with her husband grab every federal grant they can. So much for shunning Big Government.

Oh you´ll likely try calling me a racist again based on my saying I lived in downtown SJC for a few years [before, during and after 9/11] - went months at a time never seeing another white person and found it to be an enjoyable experience. [I also lived in Hawaii a year, a terribly over rated state]

You´re on here bumping your gums: on The View the Republicans have Elizabeth making herself along with her position look stupid. Newt - his own people deserted him. Rush is a convicted drug addict. Good company huh?

So as I challenged before: C´Mon Arnie, show us whatcha got.
  by: mcink2   07/05/2011 09:39 PM     
You´re too kind...
The honeymoon suite sounds tempting. Lurker´s Hoveround can´t fit through the door and, if I hide his walker, it´ll take him a week to get from the hotel lobby to the room. By then the trip will be over. :-D

Cabo San Lucas, please.

  by: carnold     07/05/2011 09:47 PM     
  Yup, I lived in an exclusive  
NON white neighborhood for about 2 years and enjoyed the culture and learning experience. I therefore am a racist.

Question Amigo: what was the dominant racial group I lived among?

You´re making one of us look really stupid. Which one is it? [quit while you´re ahead...]
  by: mcink2   07/05/2011 09:54 PM     
And you are still the most hated piece of shit in the world. You represent your Republican cretins well. You are still a liar and an unethical crook.

  During this last interchange  
I was on hold with TicketMaster: I just bought two tickets to the upcoming Santana tour. Yup, typical racist behavior if I ever saw it.

So Arnie, while you´re gathering facts of other First World nations who do not offer their citizens with government sponsored health care, could you post for me the list of countries who do not follow the metric system but cling to the antiquated "Imperial" form of measurement? I seem to have misplaced my list.

I don´t see any links. Unsurprisingly, it looks like you´re the one that was telling lies.

BTW... Did I forget to mention that you *really* sucked as an admin? You were to admins what Barney Fife was to law enforcement. Or what Etch-A-Sketch is to art. Or Casey Anthony is to loving mothers. Or....

Heh. This is fun. I could go on for days.
  by: carnold     07/05/2011 10:15 PM     
  Try harder lad  
Living in a cultural diverse neighborhood and enjoying it = racism.

No wonder the Republican party is in such disarray - their electoral base is clearly mentally incompetent.

So I cleaned out my garage then went and bought the Mrs a new JD garden tractor with all the attachments. Wud YOU do today besides wish Bush hadn´t stripped $15 TRILLION dollars out of your economy in his last year in office. You remember the chart I linked to don´t you: you know, the one you refused to acknowledge.
  by: mcink2   07/06/2011 02:46 AM     
Gotta give ya strike on this one. Etch-a-Sketch can produce great art:

And there are lots more elsewhere on the ´net.

Mr. Fife always got his man. Another "swing an´ a miss".

Casey could be a homer. Jury is still out. Oh, wait. She was found not guilty. WTF?
