What is the point of this? It seems unnecessary to me, and in some ways, rather offensive.
This bothers me more than anything else they do during the "patdown". It makes my skin crawl. "No, no, there is nothing sexual about the grope but we are going to stroke your face and hair just to add to the intimacy of the assault."
