Fros Added to the TSA's Inspection List

So I guess this is an official part of the standard TSA checklist now? Read about the TSA hair frisking that recently happened to Briana McCarthy of The Mane Source.

I realize the agents do not make the policies and are just doing their jobs. Honestly a small weapon could be concealed inside of a large enough fro, but what I don't understand is what set this off? Has there been a case of hair smuggling that led the authorities to institutionalize this policy or is it a part of racial profiling? I'm not suggesting foul play but I would appreciate an explanation of the hair frisking trend.

What do you all think?
