Forum Post: Why do we put up with these TSA freaks: TSA threatens lockdown over 4-year-old girl

"When the older lady triggered the metal detector, and was told to go for a pat-down, Isabella ran over to and briefly hugged her grandmother.

"The TSA immediately said Isabella would now also have to undergo a pat-down, in case the grandmother passed contraband to her during the hug.

"When the child shouted “I don’t want to,” the TSA declared Isabella a “high security threat,” and said that they would close down the airport if she moved.

Afterwards, the by-now-hysterical four-year-old was taken to a separate room, and told to stop crying. When she could not, the officers called for backup – saying “the suspect is not cooperating.”" http://rt.com/usa/news/tsa-us-girl-gun-869/

What is wrong with these people?

why do you single out TSA. you didnt see the one about handcuffing a 6 yr old? those were teachers and cops. all people in authority have lost thier minds to the fear mongering of the bush years. lost all common sense. why? because they know they are willing to use kids to deliver bombs so the believe everyone would use kids to deliver bombs. lol isnt that common sense?

The TSA people are the most out of touch with reality power figures I've ever known in the U.S. They can't tell the difference between an elderly person wearing depends or a colostomy bag and a terrorist? What are they, stupid? And earlier the couldn't recognize the real Ted Kennedy from the "terrorist" Ted Kennedy supposedly on the lists?

They are such damaged personalities that anyone wanting to be a TSA agent shouldn't be allowed to.

Technically, they do not possess law enforcement capabilities (or carry guns), I believe. Does anyone have more info on this?

true enough. no they have no powers except to turn people over to authorities. they have no training besides how to search, but as for deciding between colostomy bags and such.. thats not up to the people at the check point.. thats the ones in washington that make the rules. they can easily tell the difference, but if they are not paid to make that decision, they are paid to search regardless of who or what. people should of thought of that before they fell for the.. safety before liberty mindset.
