Woman w/ Gastric Tube Humiliated By TSA Agents
Fort Worth woman 'humiliated' after Love Field pat-down | wfaa.com Dallas - Fort Worth
Deaton — who has a medical condition — said Transportation Security Administration agents at Dallas Love Field crossed the line after they noticed something hanging from her stomach. She told them it was a gastric tube to flush toxins from her body.
They pulled her aside for a pat-down. Deaton said it happened behind a screen and not in a private room, and away from her luggage. Agents asked to look at the tube.
"When I pulled my shirt out and they catch a glimpse of it, they both go, 'Ugh!'" Deaton said. "I said, 'Thank you for your professionalism.'"
Deaton's experience didn't end there.
Her medical condition requires her to eat only soft foods. She claims that when agents checked her luggage, they threw out her containers filled with applesauce and pudding. She told them it was her food, and asked for a supervisor.
A comment on reddit offers some food for thought:
I remember people predicting this kind of stuff 10 years ago and being called conspiracy theorists.
