Tweets of the Day: TSA saves Orlando Airport from penis

Transportation Security Administration agents at the Orlando International Airport stopped a transgendered passenger when a suspicious “anomaly” appeared on a body scan. The anomaly was her penis.

As expected, the TSA has again come under blistering criticism for their lack of competence when it comes to protecting the nation’s airports.

The passenger in question was Shadi Petosky, a transgendered woman, who was passing through the TSA full-body x-ray machine. It was at this time her anomaly raised TSA alarms. She was then pulled aside and held in airport security.

Petosky tweeted the entire ordeal and has since become a cause célèbre.

Since the incident, the TSA has taken to Twitter to assuage concerns about their competence and insensitivity.

After a thorough investigation, it was determined that neither Petosky nor her anomaly were  a threat to national security and she was scheduled for another flight.

Future passengers can rest easy, however, because according to a statement released by the TSA averred that proper protocol was followed:

Our officers are trained to properly screen members of the transgender community. After examining closed circuit TV video and other available information, TSA has determined that the evidence shows our officers followed TSA’s strict guidelines.

This report, by Steve Ambrose, was cross-posted by arrangement with the Daily Caller News Foundation.
