TSA unveiling 'more thorough' pat-down process

TSA unveiling 'more thorough' pat-down process

The TSA is instituting new regulations for airport security pat-downs, and the techniques are reportedly so invasive that the agency preemptively warned local police to expect calls from concerned travelers. Instead of officers choosing who to search more extensively at random checkpoints, more people will be patted down more thoroughly.

The Denver International Airport has integrated the new system and has informed their crew and employees that they will be implementing more meticulous body searches.

Airport pat-downs are getting more intense, thanks to a procedural change at security checkpoints nationwide. Every single item out of my backpack, and they took the wand and they're swiping the wand with everything in the backpack, testing each one.

Aviation expert Denny Kelly doesn't believe the pat-down is as effective as it could be and said the changes to the procedures comes two years after a report found major security lapses across the country. "It includes the breasts, the buttocks, the groin area", stated TSA Regional Spokesperson, Mark Howell. "This is something that's happened before.' He's like 'No we need to explain it to you because the rules have changed'".

However, Barca's hopes were further raised five minutes before the break thanks to more shambolic PSG defending. They had the flawless start when Suarez's effort just went over the line after just three minutes.

Previously, if a flier was selected, one of five separate types of pat-downs were used but the new search procedure said is to replace all five of the other pat-downs.

An already-dreaded part of air travel has thus become that much more unbearable, yet many Americans are prepared to accept it. "Security is very important so do whatever is necessary to have a safe flight", traveler Judy Powell told WLS. In fact, a successful plot on the TSA's watch would probably only lead to more funding for the agency - as government failures usually do - and even less freedom for travelers. "You know, security's number one thing, and I don't care what happens to me as long as I get there in one piece", said Thomas Aquinas of Brooklyn. TSA requires all pat-downs to be conducted an officer of the same sex. It's unclear how involved the pat-down is meant to be, but the organization told police to prepare for complaints about the new procedure.

The TSA also said that in limited cases "sensitive pat-down with the front of the hand may be needed to determine that a threat does not exist".
