29 Nov AIRPORT SCREENING CHANGES FOR KIDS AT N.Y AIRPORTS
CBS Reports Airport Screening Changes for Kids at New York City Airports
They say they want to keep terrorists guessing, but the media is still hyped up about the airport screening restrictions made by national airports ever since the attacks on New York City on 9/11. But this time the new regulations that are being implemented have to do with kids. This is in response to the outrage over a video made by parents of a six-year-old girl who was patted down at an airport in New Orleans.

TSA has released a new rule that kids under 12 do not have to wear shoes and will receive fewer pat downs than adults. If they fail the screening they will be allowed multiple tries and then may get a swab test on their hands to test for bombs. Only then will they be required to do a pat down.
All three major airports in the greater New York City vicinity – including JFK, LaGuardia, and Newark – will adhere to these new changes, which have already been initiated for the holiday travel season. There may be new changes for adults, too. Business travelers and frequent fliers will soon be allowed lighter restrictions in exchange for giving up information.
These less invasive measures will not affect passenger safety and have been put in place to add greater respect and convenience to domestic travelers.
