like it was said earlier the terrorist would exploit this
if children are to be searched proper parental permission should be saught by the searcher female for female children and male for male children no male should search a female
unfortunatley in this day and age you have to be careful and just because they are security doesnt mean they are not just trying to cop a grope
Perhaps a small side room decorated like a child's Nursery could be set up where Security Checks on infants and children can take place.
As has been said before, the sort of people who perpetrate terrorist acts and take part in drug smuggling etc will stoop to any level they need to in order to carry out their crimes and this includes using children.
I also believe that wherever possible, female Security Staff should be responsible for checking children and infants.
And maybe the Security Officer carrying out the check could wear a basic simple Glove Puppet on one hand, or something like that to make the experience of the search more of a *game* rather than a security frisk down.
i agree ladyjan, when they search you and touch around your boobs its vile and makes me feel uncomfortable ive had this done quite a few times inc the uk, they did this to me in stansted despite the machine not going off so i asked her why and she told me i was the 3rd woman through and that was the only reason and she picked on every 3rd woman, not sure if they changed this every day or not !!!
And it's probably not much fun for the female security staff either - imagine a day spent having to feel the boobs of 1,000s of strangers :-)
veryselective as to who got searched.
the little old ladies and teenagers were passed through without any problem, but women from 25-40 seemed to get the full treatment, especially the ones with tight jeans on
we spent an amusing half hour trying to guess who the next victim would be.
don't suppose it was much fun for the lady travellers though!
In other words the ones who fit the profile for drug mules!
i always thought that they tried to stop drug mules coming into the country, not target them on the way out.
i do believe that security is a major issue, and that all steps should be taken to minimise risks, but that has to be balanced between searching everyone without exception -with the corresponding long delays- or targetting who they search based on available information.
it's a tough call, and that is the security peoples job, but you do sometimes wonder whether they pick people totally at random or their choice of who to frisk is based on other unknown reasons.
