Mom says TSA agents at DFW Airport traumatized son with 'horrifying' security check;
A mother who asked TSA agents at DFW International Airport for alternative screening for her son with special needs said they were "Treated like dogs" Ref. Source 9p.
Okay, this doesn't look traumatizing to me but I don't know the specifics of her son's special needs. I think we have to find a happy median where people with special needs are treated with the respect they deserve while public safety is also addressed.
Oh my goodness, this is entirely too far. Maybe they should have made her take her jewelry and walk back through. But in the interest of not targeting the group that has actually targeted the US we are searching this woman. Yeah, that makes sense.
The TSA has long been know as a place for pedipholes and other not so nice people to work so they could have thier power trips and feel people up all in the name of security. What I find interesting is that many people actually feel safer knowing that this is going on. I would like to see some changes in the TSA operations but trying to get the government to see a better way of doing things is hard. When doing a pat down you do not need to go as far as this search did. I feel this is way over board and just a TSA agent that likes girls to get her jollies.
