The removal of an airplane traveler from a security line and being placed in a plastic holding cage for a long time because the alarm was set off by the traveler's hip implant. This occurs regardless of any medical documentation showing the presence of the hip implant and results in long delays and intensive body searches.
"Hey, what took you so long to get to the gate for the flight." " I was the object of hip profiling and was patted down for 10 minutes"
