A disturbing photo was posted on Twitter of a baby getting a pat-down from a security officer at Kansas City International Airport. It’s the latest in a growing number of publicized incidents involving airport security agents who have screened children under 12.

In the most recent incident, the baby stroller set off a security alarm, which requires that Transportation Security agents pat-down all family members. According to a TSA statement, their security officers “followed proper current screening procedures by screening the family, who were very cooperative and were on the way to their gate in no time.”

The Twitter pic, showing the baby pat-down, was taken by Kansas City pastor Jacob Jester, who said it was an “extreme measure.” In an MSNBC.com article, the pastor said, “I wasn’t trying to embarrass the TSA, but believe there has to be a line drawn. I do not believe that an 8-month-old constitutes a security threat.”

This recent baby pat-down comes on the heels of highly publicized complaints about airport security screenings, including a 8-year-old boy who received a pat-down at the Portland International Airport, and parents who were upset after their 6-year-old daughter was frisked in New Orleans.
