We flew cross-country the other day, and my dd was stopped when the TSA agent saw her pump. She asked what it was, and my dd told her it's an insulin pump. The agent then told us that dd had to be patted down (even though she went through the scanner without setting off any alarms), and that ALL of our carryon bags - the whole family's! - had to be hand searched (even though they'd all gone through the xray just fine). When my older dd started to put her sweatshirt into her backpack, the agent told her to stop doing anything to the bags or they'd have to go through extra screening. WHAT?! I thought about asking to talk with a supervisor, but figured it would take too long and I didn't know what kind of ridiculous rules the TSA had come out with recently. When I commented to the agent that we'd never had any issue with this before, she said, "I can't help it if other airports aren't following the rules. I don't make the rules; I just implement them." In the end, after patting down my dd and taking our hand luggage, someone else told the agent that the rule had changed, and they no longer had to search all of our bags. What is up with this? Has anyone else had this experience? And is there somewhere I can find a current written TSA policy that I can carry with me when we fly home next week in case we run into something ridiculous like this again? I do have to say, though, that I was very proud of how my dd handled being treated like a potential threat.
