This time the traveler with the problem is Penn of Penn and Teller fame. (If you don't know, they are very funny and talented magicians.)
He gets searched and one of the employees grabs his crotch area. Penn explains that that is assault and he would like the police to be called. The employee ignores that, finishes the search, and tells Penn he can leave. Penn says he isn't leaving till he gets a police officer. The one who shows up is a big fan of Penn and Teller and NOT a fan of federal employees doing security searches at the airports. He offers to fill out the assault report that Penn is asking for. Several supervisors get called. They keep telling Penn he can leave. They try to intimidate him by insisting on his license, which he gave them. They try to get rid of him, by telling him he's going to miss his plane. Then they offer him “safe passage” through the airport after giving him a disconnected number for complaint calls.
This site tells the story from his point of view.
My husband is traveling by air this week. If you pray, please remember him and ask for safety and hassle free flights.
