Skimpy top on a young girl; not your place TSA

Another TSA investigation has been opened,
This time it involves an agent at LAX who told a 15-year-old girl to 'cover herself up.'

Here is a photo her dad took before writing about the incident on his blog.

I was expecting much worse before I saw this picture after only reading about the story.

Then I saw this photo and said to myself, "That's it? This is what all the fuss is about?"

What am I missing here?

Seems by today's standards that's a pretty tame outfit for a 15 year old.

And my point here is that, as a parent, whether or not you think this is appropriate attire for your kid is up to YOU, not the TSA. Agent was out of line IMHO.
