LOOKOUT!! CALL THE AUTHORITIES QUICK!!! THERE ARE CHILDREN IN THE AIRPORT THAT ARE A THREAT TO OUR NATIONAL SECURITY!!!
A little 4 year old girl on her way home to Montana hugged her gramma (this link is from all the way across the pond) as gramma was being detained after she triggered an alarm at the security checkpoint. This is the last we hear about Gramma. For all we know it was a rosary in her pocket because she is terrified of flying that set the alarm off. The TSA Agents attempted to snatch the little girl so they could “frisk her too” at which point the little girl tried to run away in TERROR (Stranger Danger, anyone? I’m glad she ran) and the situation escalates past a point of no return and the mother is threatened with being the cause of the airport canceling all flights. Really? I’d love to see that happen because of a little girl. What an empty threat. Do it. Cancel the flights. I do not have children; I am not trying to speak out of turn. I do not blame the mom for allowing the agents to push her into a corner. I do not mean allow in the sense that mom just handed her child over these people while they performed the atrocity. What was she supposed to do? What would you have done in an airport FULL of people who just want to go to wherever they are going? Unfortunately, the bluff was not called and the little girl is scarred for life. Could you just imagine the media attention this story would have received if they actually canceled all flights because of a weeping 4 year old child? Oh wait. It wouldn’t have received any because the media is just as much a part of the problem.
I find it interesting that the TSA Agents are referred to as “officers” in the statement released by the TSA. When did they become officers? To say “officer” implies a greater authority than “agent”. Subliminal compliance, perhaps?
What the hell is wrong with these Agents? Okay, I understand they are standing for long hours wearing blue gloves dealing with the public. Grumpy public. Believe me, the public is grumpy. I used to waitress, I know what the public is like and they are grumpy. I have never taken my frustrations out on a child. No matter how much I might have wanted to when I must have picked up that damn fork off the floor 15 thousand times every time I walked by a certain table. I understood that it was a CHILD. My fault for picking the damn thing up. I should have just tossed it in the sink in the kitchen. Back to my question…what the hell is WRONG with these Agents? I’ll tell you.
These are people who are ALLOWED TO TOUCH YOUR CHILDREN IN THE MOST INAPPROPRIATE MANNER POSSIBLE AND YOU HAVE TO STAND BY AND WATCH!!!
I could compare them to the Gestapo and SS of Nazi Germany, but I won’t go that far. Not in this post.
Let’s call them by what they are: they are government sanctioned bullies. GSB’s for short. Bullies prey on the weak. They have learned that can’t bully a full grown adult. A full grown adult can tell them to stop touching them inappropriately and make threats of lawsuits. A full grown adult can make a fist and knock the TSA agent out. A full grown adult can kick the TSA agent in the balls or what have you. So the TSA goes after your weakness – your children under the guise of safety. Children are your kryptonite and you will bend to the TSA’s will. Unwillingly, but you will bend.
I am sure that every parent whose child is chosen by a TSA agent thinks that there is NO friggin way that an adult, a stranger to their child, an adult who has a position of “authority” would ever do anything to scare said child. I’m sure that many parents just want to get the procedure over with as fast and with as little resistance as possible.
Imagine their surprise when it gets out of hand ~ they must be stunned! I sure as hell would be. They probably go through so many emotions at once that before they know it they have a crying child in front of them and the situation snowballs. They forget that the world is made up of people who hate their jobs and take pleasure in whatever they need to do to pass the time, including those that work for the TSA and there are lecherous people in all fields.
Families are pushed into a corner because if they don’t “allow” their child(ren) to be molested they cannot get on the plane. Did you see this? A little 7-year old girl has Cerebral Palsy and the family missed their flight. What a shame that the TSA Agents have such hatred towards those disabled that they felt the need to “handle her aggressively“. Didn’t anyone ever take the time to teach them that those who are disabled aren’t monsters? They need and deserve to be treated more gently. They are disabled. Y’know what? I bet those botox injections to help heal her were going to give her superhuman strength mid-flight and she was going to rip her leg braces off and Hulk-out because the Flight Attendant gave her grape juice instead of apple. Thank goodness the TSA was there to inspect her fully before the flight causing the family to miss their plane.
I swear, if I didn’t know any better I would say that this is all a part of the plan to keep the citizens of The United States immobile. Make it as difficult as possible for the people to travel. Corral the population and you make the people dependent upon the government.
Either that or it’s just a conspiracy to make sure that the child molesters get their daily grope.
