TSA tests behavioral screening at Boston Logan Airport

BOSTON -- Airport security could be changing yet again.

The Transportation Security Agency is investigation a program at Boston's Logan Airport.

It is called behavior detection and is supposed to spot potential terrorists, but many believe it leads to racial profiling instead.

Several TSA officers have said it targets Middle Easterners, Hispanics and even black people wearing baseball caps.

"Behavior detection is supposed to be neutral as far as ethnicity, gender. It is all driven by behavior no matter who might be," Brad Garrett, security expert, said.

The TSA responded saying that was not the program's intention and they will take immediate action.
