Strip Search

Daniel speaks to Senator Dick Durbin, Democrat from Illinois, about what he says is an apparant bias in strip-searches at U.S. airports: At O''Hare International Airport, three quarters of those people who were strip-searched were women, and black women were twice as likely to be searched as whites, Hispanics and Asians. Durbin also argues that in some cases strip-searchers do not respect basic standards of human decency.
