If you’ve traveled from Las Vegas or Boston recently, you’ve probably noticed that the screener was feeling you up a little more than usual. Well, that’s because they were.
An experiment is being tested in both McCarran International Airport and Boston’s Logan International Airport, which allows the screeners to use the palms of their hands during a pat down rather than using their backhand.
The American Civil Liberties Union is not too pleased though and according to the Associated Press they question whether the new technique is effective enough to justify a “seemingly constant erosion of privacy.”
If you’re getting a little jealous of people from Las Vegas and Boston, don’t worry, as the TSA is saying that it plans on extending this “frisky behavior” to airports across the United States.
