TSA officer accused of “shaming” teen

According to Mark Frauenfelder, his 15-year-old daughter was “shamed” by a TSA officer at LAX Airport over the weekend. In a blog post on Sunday night, he wrote:

“Here’s what happened, as my daughter described it in text messages to us: she was at the station where the TSA checks IDs. She said the officer was ‘glaring’ at her and mumbling. She said, ‘Excuse me?’ and he said, ‘You’re only 15, COVER YOURSELF!’ in a hostile tone. She said she was shaken up by his abusive manner.

I’m including the above photo of the outfit my daughter was wearing when the TSA officer shamed her. It doesn’t matter what she was wearing, though, because it’s none of his business to tell girls what they should or should not wear.”

He says the TSA at LAX is investigating the incident.
