'We hate obese passengers and people with personal hygiene issues:' Now 'abused' TSA staff vent their anger at patdown searches
Furious security staff today hit back at pat down searches in airports across America, claiming that they hated dealing with obese travellers and those with personal hygiene problems.
As millions of people prepared to travel for Thanksgiving, passenger backlash was growing against the measures introduced by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
But after being contacted by a travel blog, 17 security staff came forward to express their disgust at the policy put in place last month.
They said that they hated having to carry out body searches, with one claiming that it was worse for him than the passenger.
