Strip Searching Little Girls

I remember a notable case in which an 11 year old girl was stripped search by a security personnel at an airport and in view of her decent parents and everybody. It made my AOL front page.

There was nothing suspicious at all concerning the little girl, she's just like all the little girls in the airport, the security personnel said, but that she said she has to check everybody, meaning all sorts of people, because the little girl might have weapons inside her clothes.

I suppose it's good judgment that many more adults than you can shake a stick at - or even Muslims - who passed by are less desirable to be searched.

I say she is a few fries short of a Happy Meal!
