Is TSA Going Too Far?

I honestly don’t know how I would feel about this.  Kind of an “in the moment thing.”

The Transportation Security Administration is defending security screeners at Kansas City International Airport who were captured on cellphone video Saturday  patting-down a baby who appeared to be less than a year old.

The video went viral after the pastor who took it posted it on Twitter.

A TSA spokesman said the baby’s stroller had set off an alert of possible traces of explosives, so the screeners were justified in doing a closer inspection of the baby as he was held in his mother’s arms.

The Reverend Jacob Jester posted the picture to Twitter, commenting that the search of the baby was extreme, and his wife and another pastor posted it as well. After it went viral and got media attention, many complained that the screeners had gone too far.

What do you think?  Is TSA going too far?
