    Default Cancer Survivor Says She Was Forced to Remove Prosthetic Breast During Pat-Down

    A cancer survivor says she was forced to show her prosthetic breast during a pat-down at an airport in North Carolina.

    Cathy Bossi, a Charlotte-area flight attendant, told WBTV, a local CBS affiliate, that in August, two female Transportation Security Administration agents took her to a private room for what she calls an aggressive pat-down.

    They stopped when they got around to feeling her right breast, the one where she'd had surgery, said Bossi, a three-year breast cancer survivor.

    "She put her full hand on my breast and said, 'What is this?'" Bossi told the station. "And I said, 'It's my prosthesis because I've had breast cancer.' And she said, 'Well you'll need to show me that.'"

    Bossi said she removed the prosthetic breast from her bra.

    "I did not take the name of the person at the time because it was just so horrific of an experience, I couldn't believe someone had done that to me," she said. "I'm a flight attendant. I was just trying to get to work."

    A TSA spokesperson told the station that agents aren't supposed to remove any prosthetics but are allowed to ask to see and touch any passenger's prosthetic. The agency said it will review the matter.

    Bossi's story is just one of many fueling a backlash against passenger pat-downs and high-tech scanners that produce digital images of the body's contours. Florida Rep. John Mica is pushing for airports to consider ditching TSA agents altogether in favor of private contractors. Some travelers are using the Internet to organize protests aimed at the busy travel days surrounding Thanksgiving next week

    Oh christ......slow the fuck down a little.....is it going to also be ok to do everything that they want in the future too?

    Who's going to say "it's ok, they're just making sure we're protected" when they start sticking fingers up people's asses while they're there?

    the day they start using flight attendants to take over planes then we should start bothering them. Until then can we not just hassle the obvious people? how many terroists have not been able bodied men? Can we not focus on us (youngish guys) for the time being? Geez

    It does sound as if some of this is a bit excessive, however, the day when we start pinpointing our focus on one target group, that will be the day when they start to use another.

    Unfortunately, all I hear are complaints about the current system - I don't hear anyone offering any ways that we can be more certain that folks aren't carrying explosives onto an airplane in ways that aren't obvious to current screeners.

    Its kinda like the zero tolerance rules at school-use common sense. If the flight attendant has a clean background and you know what she's gone through, then there's no need to examine her prosthetic. Hopefully the company she works for did a thorough background check on her and continue to do so. Hell at my job my background is checked every so often-and I have nothing to do w/aviation.

    i never said anything about women with breast cancer. just saying that screeners gotta do what they gotta do to ensure no one gets a bomb on board the airplanes. there are SO MANY ways to smuggle explosives its not even funny. that up to and including: hiding in anus/vaginal cavity, implants AND prostheses. its not a joke, and if it were unneccessary, i would be against it. if im going thru a checkpoint and they think ive got something on me, go ahead, juggle my nuts, scan me, xray, do what ya gotta do to make sure. cause id rather have that than being blown to bits 33,000 feet above the earth.

    Where does this stop? I swear to god, if the TSA made cavity searches mandatory, you'd have people justifying it in the same way. It is the next logical move for terrorists. How are they going to detect explosives in the asshole?

    We have to draw a line.

    Go ahead all of you linkers who keep saying stop complaining. You either don't have children and just don't understand or you are just an uncaring idiot. And yes I know if I don't like it I don't have to fly, which I won't and haven't had to since 2005.
    I would love to see the Presidents reaction to his girls being patted down like this. Even Hillary Clinton herself said she would avoid this type of pat down whenever possible.

    and, thus, Bill Clinton has had to get his freak on elsewhere!
