I read an CNN article about a woman claiming she was harrassed by security staff at an airport.
She walked through the metal detector and it beeped. So, a security official told her to step aside and swept her body with
a portable metal detector. The detector beeped when it passed over her chest. It turned out that she was wearing metal
piercings on her nipples. She was taken behind a curtain and told to remove them. After a few minutes, she removed
a ring piercing. During the time, she overheard the female security officer talking to her male collegues about it and a
male officer laughed. Irritated, she had trouble removing a second piercing, a bar-shaped piercing. When the female office was
told about the problem, she gave her a pair of pliers. With tears in eyes, she removed the piercing. Another sweep beeped
over her stomach but the officer let her board the plane. Later, she found out that passengers have the right to request
for a pat down search and would have chosen the option if she'd been informed.

Please correct any mistakes.

Thanks in advance!

Optilang, thanks for the speeding reply. Could you help me understand why 'request for' is incorrect? I've seen it used many times.

Also, why is 'the option' incorrect?

Thanks
I don't think either are wrong (sorry I didn't mean to imply that) I just think that my changes make it seem more natural to me.
a request for something
to request something - sounds better to me
