    Today the complaint was that an agent requested a 95 year old woman to remove her adult diaper. It was wet and it hindered their process.

    For Gorsh sake! Do we want border control? She was not alone, she had an assistant, her daughter. It seems to be a logical thing anyways to remove a soiled diaper! :confused:

    ItÂ’s a good thing they checked her out. She could have taken that thing off and used it as a weapon during the flight.

    And some people will ridicule the idea of patting down an old white woman.

    That is where you say:

    You want it...you take it off.

    so when someone sticks a bomb in granny's diaper and blows up a plane?

    how 'bout THIS story today?
    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/jun/26/afghanistan-taliban-girl-bomb-police

    you people lay in wait every time someone whines and start the ranting and raving. guess what? these aren't nice people. they will use a dog, a child, an old person, a diaper, underwear, shoes...

    you think this is a freaking joke.

    don't fly if you don't like it. or stay off of my flights.

    This is going a bit too damn far.
    95 years old.....in a wheelchair....and she is wearing a Depends.
    I'd really like to know what the security assholes really thought this poor old woman was hiding in her undergarments.
    If they have a scanning machine to scan the body, why couldn't they just scan her Depends??
    For Christ's sake, it's going to get to the point where a person is going to have to strip down naked, to satisfy this flippin airport security.
    I will say this, if it had been my Mother they did this too, my ass would have been hauled off to jail, for I would have caused such a commotion, such a scene, they would most likely have gotten me for disturbing the peace or some shit.
    I would have defended my Mother in any means possible, as I'm sure this lady's daughter did.
    This story is sad and it makes me sick.

    the chemicals in an adult diaper turn into a gel when the wearer urinates. it is impossible for tsa to tell the difference between that and C4.

    it sucks, but we know that terrorists don't discriminate in who they use to blow up stuff.
