A full body pat down left the beauty queen feeling "violated" and "molested"
It isn't really important whether Susie Castillo was right to feel violated or not -- it's an inherently subjective judgment. The point is that she is hardly alone in being deeply uncomfortable with full body pat downs that include the genitals. The controversy over these techniques has waned. But every day, inside airports across the country, American citizens who've done nothing wrong feel violated by their own government, sometimes to the point of crying.
What bothered me most was when she ran the back of her hands down my behind, felt around my breasts, and even came in contact with my vagina! ...I never expected it to make me so upset. When it was over, I grabbed my things, walked over to my husband who was waiting for me, and was completely overcome with emotion. I have never felt more violated in my life than I did that morning at DFW
Is it worth it?
