Did you even know that Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents at airports pat down kids? Well, the agency has now amended its policy. They might still pat down your child to check for explosives and such, but now their new policy is to try other less invasive measures with children before they resort to a pat down. Yay?
TSA Administrator John Pistole said the new policy should help reduce the number of kiddie pat downs. Check below for video of a six-year-old getting a pat down at a New Orleans airport earlier this year.
How would you react if a TSA agent requested to pat down your child? Do you agree with having kids get a pat down or do you think it’s excessive?
