I am a physician who had been on the Radiation Safety Committee at a university hospital.
In 2004, when going through the San Antonio Airport, I saw there was no radiation shielding for employees. When I tried to inquire what the radiation safety procedures were, I was roughed up, apprehended, searched, jailed, had my flight cancelled and subsequently blackballed for any flying. I suffered 2 years of a living hell.
My fine was $10,000 for interfering with the screening process. Please understand the TSA has no standards for radiation exposure of passengers or employees. The TSA is a bullying federal police. It is out of control and has been out of control for some time..
