SHOCK!!! DID JACKSON COUNTY LEGISLATOR CRYSTAL AND KANSAS CITY STAR REPORT FAKE NEWS ABOUT UNDERWIRE BRA CRACKDOWN?!?!?
As 12th & Oak denizens confront a security squeeze over alleged security gender disparity, two progressive institutions seem to have been bouncing around with the wrong info.
To wit . . .
AUTHORITIES CONTEND THAT LADIES WERE NEVER ASKED TO TAKE THEIR BRAS OFF DURING SECURITY CHECKS!!!
Clearly the subject of lingerie deserves further investigation . . .
Here's the money line from a better publication:
Examiner: Jackson County legislator Crystal Williams raised the issue on Twitter Monday after female attorneys and others complained of discrimination when trying to enter the jail in downtown Kansas City. The checkpoint consists of an X-ray machine and metal detectors that are apparently triggered by the metal in underwire bras.
“I think we have to figure something out because people are going nuts,” she noted.
Diana Turner, the Jackson County corrections department director, contended the security protocol implemented May 16 aims to prevent weapons and contraband from being smuggled into the facility.
Jackson County Sheriff Darryl Forté said misinformation has been spread about the screening process.
“Everyone is required to pass through a metal detector,” he said. “No one has been asked to take off underwire bras.”
As with all things related to the Courthouse, we'll have to wait for the FBI (Federal Boobie Inspector) to make the call after more than a handful of complaints . . .
