Cheaper Than a Cat Scan

Posted by glasscastle on February 27th, 2004


A security screener at Denver International Airport was reprimanded for
sending his body through an X-ray machine.

"The screener went through the X-ray machine voluntarily," Fierberg
said. "I cannot ascribe any sort of motive to why anyone would do this."

The screener, who was working at a passenger checkpoint, was disciplined, he
said. Fierberg wouldn’t release the screener’s name or the exact nature of the
discipline.

"The screener in question did not jeopardize the safety of any passengers
or aircraft," he
said. "But it was clearly behavior that is not acceptable.

"We expect more from our screeners and, by and large, they are a highly
trained
work force."
