Here’s someone who “caught” America’s Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) agent’s eyes at Los Angeles International Airport. The former ‘Baywatch’ actress Donna D'Errico claims that a TSA agent pulled her for body scan without giving a choice of undergoing pat-down search, as per the normal procedure.
According to D'Errico, when she asked the TSA agent why only she was chosen for the scan, he replied sarcastically, “because you caught my eye, and they didn’t”.
D'Errico said she saw TSA officers “leering” at her scan that produces virtually naked images of passengers.
“After the search, I noticed that the male agent who had pulled me out of line was smiling and whispering with two other agents and glancing at me. I was outraged,” the actress was quoted as saying in media.
This incident has yet again put TSA under scrutiny over violation and stripping of an individual’s privacy rights. The agency has been facing widespread criticism over its new airport screening rules for quite some time now. While Obama had instructed the officials to make the screenings less intrusive, travelers had even called for a pre-Thanksgiving no-fly-day boycott.
