Laments Treatment Of Elderly, Increased Scanner Use
In the wake of recent allegations of questionable screening
tactics used on elderly women, FlyersRights.org is calling for an
end to government-sponsored "security theater." The story of
85-year-old Lenore Zimmerman's alleged strip search at New York's
JFK International, coupled with a similar tale at the same airport
from 88-year-old Ruth Sherman, illustrate what FlyersRights calls
the folly of granting almost unlimited power to TSA officers.
Kate Hanni (pictured), founder and Executive Director of
FlyersRights.org says, "FlyersRights has always demanded truly
effective, safe, constitutional, consistently-applied security
measures. These incidents demand new approaches to a serious
challenge—the safety of America's air-traveling public."
She also notes, "In the most freedom-loving country in the
world, government agencies that routinely strip us of our freedoms
must find other ways to do their jobs, using a risk-based,
intelligence-driven approach. We are disappointed to see that body
scanner use is still expanding."
FlyersRights.org calls itself the largest non-profit consumer
organization in the United States representing airline passengers
with 50,000 members and a toll free hotline, 1-877-359-3776.
