Jean Weber of Destin filed a complaint with the Department of Homeland Security after her 95-year-old mother was detained and extensively searched last Saturday while trying to board a plane to fly to Michigan to be with family members during the final stages of her battle with leukemia.
Her mother, who was in a wheelchair, was asked to remove an adult diaper in order to complete a pat-down search.
“It’s something I couldn’t imagine happening on American soil,” Weber said Friday. “Here is my mother, 95 years old, 105 pounds, barely able to stand, and then this.”
Every time I have to remove my shoes and go through the porno scanner, I curse Darth Cheney and all the frickin’ soccer moms he convinced to be afeared and vote Repub because they’re better at keepin’ us safer. Thanks, Dick.
