I live in Portland and I find the airport nice with many restaurants and shops. However I find the TSA to consistently be rude. On my last flight from Portland I had a broken knee and was unable to walk. I was stopped at security because my metal leg brace set off the metal detector and I was searched for 40 minutes. I was only able to catch my plane as I continued to plead with them that I was about to miss my plane and I was in no condition to run to the gate. I was the last person onboard and I lost my seat so I had to hold my broken knee in the middle seat for 5.5 hours. The Portland TSA simply chose to harrass me. I have had many experiences in this airport that have been fine but based on this experience when I was disabled I would only give this airport a one star rating.
