Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents are very important when it comes to flight safety, but some have been known to take security measures way too far.
One recent incident left a radio host and mom with breast cancer feeling violated and completely humiliated. When Denise Albert was traveling through Los Angeles International Airport on December 4, she received terrible and insensitive treatment at the hands of two agents who repeatedly ignored the fact that she had special items to carry on board because of her illness.
The co-host of SiriusXM radio show “The Moms” was pulled aside by TSA agents after informing them about the medical cream she needed in her bag.
Despite the fact that she is a Pre-Check passenger, meaning that she should get faster screenings without having to remove her shoes, they made her take them off anyway. Her feet were covered in sores from her cancer treatments, which prevented her from standing for long.
