The stupid and useless TSA gives us another reason to hate their existence as a pestilence on air travel in this country. Unable to provide any actual security, they have to be content with humiliating people with unnecessary searches. This time, an incontinent cancer patient is the victim.
A cancer victim who suffers from incontinence was humiliated during an incident last week when a TSA agent loudly announced “he’s wearing a diaper” to waiting travelers, before laughing and subjecting the man to a strip search.
The harrowing account of the man’s experience at the hands of everybody’s favorite federal agency is explained by his wife in a post over at CafeMom.com.
Suffering from OAB (overactive bladder) as a result of being afflicted with prostate cancer, the man has to wear an adult diaper but, according to his wife, has never had any problems with airport security in the past that couldn’t be solved with a simple explanation. She picks up the story;
“After he emerged from the scanner the TSA officer (a female) asked if he was carrying liquids in his clothing. He explained his condition and what had happened. In the past, it was embarrassing enough for him to just tell a TSA employee that I was wearing an adult incontinence garment but now he was also announcing that he had wet himself.)
