Mother 'told to prove lactation' at Frankfurt airport


A woman has filed a complaint with German police alleging she was told to squeeze her breast at airport security to prove she was lactating.
Gayathiri Bose told the BBC she was “humiliated” by the experience and would explore formal legal action.
She said police at Frankfurt Airport were suspicious because she was carrying a breast pump but travelling without her baby.


I didn’t know a breast pump could be weaponized.


“Take this plane to Tripoli or I will slime you all with my breast milk!”




Why not? it probably easier to do than shoes or underwear which were weaponized.


It is harder because a breast pump can be easily inspected.


Those wacky German police. Wonder what they would demand if they found you were carrying an extra large tube of Preparation H?

Just askin…
