Just in Time for the Holidays: Chest Protection


From the AP:

Security screeners now will keep their hands to the "chest perimeter" of women unless detection equipment picks up the possibility that they are hiding explosives in the area in question.

The policy change comes after many complaints about inappropriate contact between airport screeners and female passengers.

Whole thing here.
