ExpressJet pilot refuses body scan, puts privacy over safety?
Roberts was selected to be scanned at Memphis International Airport last Friday. He refused. He was offered a pat-down. He refused that, too. Then, he went home, according to an Associated Press report.
The pilot says he doesn't want to be "harassed or molested without cause." Meanwhile, the TSA is citing "federal security procedures," the Associated Press reports.
How do you feel about this? Is Roberts some kind of obstinate nut? Or, does he have a real point about privacy in the workplace? Drop a comment below, and let us know.
