Or at least the TSA is preparing for that eventuality.

Justin Bachman, Bloomberg:

The U.S. Transportation Security Administration has declined to say exactly where—and how—employees will be touching air travelers as part of the more invasive physical pat-down procedure it recently ordered.

But the agency does expect some passengers to consider the examination unusual. In fact, the TSA decided to inform local police in case anyone calls to report an “abnormal” federal frisking…

Any physical examination that makes you want to call 911 sounds like… well, basically what the government does to us every day anyway.

Ah, modern air travel. First you get groped, then you get screwed!
