TSA Pats Down Little, Half-Naked Boy In Airport (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The furor over the seemingly ridiculous TSA patdowns is reaching a fever pitch, and the Obama administration came back in full force over the weekend, including comments by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Recently, there have been several anti-TSA parodies as well as videos of people getting strip-searched flooding the Internet.

Below is the latest video of a young boy getting strip-searched by a male TSA officer.

The TSA responded to this video in particular on their blog stating:

On November 19, a family was traveling through a TSA checkpoint at the Salt Lake City International Airport. Their son alarmed the walk through metal detector and needed to undergo secondary screening. The boy's father removed his son's shirt in an effort to expedite the screening.

The response also said that travelers are not asked to remove any clothing (other than the usual shows, jackets, etc) at TSA checkpoints, and if they are, travelers should ask for a supervisor or manager.
