College Student Protests TSA Pat Downs at DCA

Photo Courtesy - ABC News(WASHINGTON)  -- A college student has launched a one-man protest over the TSA’s controversial pat down techniques.

27-year-old Brad Aefsky, a student from Fairfax, Va., held a sign Wednesday at Reagan International Airport which read, "TSA: Tyrants Sexually Assaulting Americans."

As Aefsky answered questions during a media interview, a passerby shouted, “Why don’t you get a job?” A comment to which Aefsky replied, “Why don’t you wake up?”

The Transportation Security Administration and the White House have come under fire recently for the new pat down techniques which some have called invasive.

According to an ABC News/Washington Post poll, fewer than half of Americans support the new procedure.
