A woman with a pacemaker was arrested and banned from the Austin airport this week for refusing a TSA patdown of her breasts. Claire Hirschkind, 56, says she's a rape victim and that her constitutional rights were violated.
I'm very torn on this issue. Stories like this are very unsettling, but in all honesty, a woman could easily be hiding something in her bra. Just because she is a rape victim doesn't mean she can't be a terrorist.
And I'm not saying that they did anything right at the Austin airport- the situation should have been handled (pun not intended) differently.
