    body check 'em face first into the "holding pen" glass. If I'm on the jury, you'd walk. Did you watch the video and see the grotesque smiles on the faces of the prison matrons bustling around that poor little girl? Like mass murderers feigning sympathy when there is none. If their smiles were sincere, they wouldn't be harming little kids like this.

    Would somebody please direct me to this video? The only one I have seen is about 14 seconds long. TIA.

  4. It strikes me that this is another case where TSA could have caused a person serious medical problems with their illegal detention. This girl was detained on her way to a medical treatment for a serious, rare disease. What if she had missed her flight and missed a scheduled treatment? It's hypothetical, but it could have happened.

    TSA wrote the book on how to Turn the World Against Flying.

    Did Bloghdad Bob chime in on this yet? Or is he waiting for instructions from the Mothership?

    TSA will ignore this incident.

    TSA and its leadership (damn I hate using that word when speaking of TSA) doesn't think they did anything wrong. To be so brain dead to not understand why this and other similar assaults on citizens is wrong makes me ponder just where TSA employees really come from.

    TSA employees are certainly not human nor do they deserve any respect or other consideration from travelers.

    Maybe if we leave shallow bowls of beer or carry salt shakers with us we can better deal with this pest problem.

    One that explained both the continuity (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Chertoff) and the significant difference of enhanced screening, of children in wheelchairs etc., since 2010 seems like a worthy educational film strip. Photos from East Germany could provide additional material.

    They *are* humans and are capable of knowing right from wrong. So it is by deliberate intent that they do these types of things to innocent people, here putting their whole muscling apparatus on the back of this small kid and driving her in tears down into the dirt. Of their own free will they act in an evil and shameful manner.

    By observing actions I think it is safe to say that TSA employees clearly are not human.

    Radar Online: 'I Still Feel Traumatized!' Disabled Girl Detained By TSA Speaks Out

    The 12-year-old girl filmed crying after TSA agents at a Texas airport detained her, claiming she tested positive for explosive residue on her hands, tells RadarOnline.com exclusively that she is still “traumatized” a week after the incident. In an exclusive interview with Radar, Shelbi Walser says she is still in shock by the event that caused a public outcry when video footage of her red-faced and in tears was released. “I feel like traumatized, but I’m getting better,” she tells us. “I didn’t know what was going to happen and what the they were going to do to me. [I thought they might] take me away. “When they said I tested positive for explosive residue on my hands I didn’t say anything. I was just in shock.”

    ...

    While Daniels ... is aware of the need for extra airport security since the 9/11 attacks, she says no protocol seems to have been followed. The mom-of-three says the TSA agents called two bomb and explosives experts, whom she saw making calls on their cellphones. After seemingly getting no response at the other end they just decided to let Shelbi go. Daniels says: “I understand TSA safety, however, they were not doing their job.

    All Voices: Young 12 year old girl in wheelchair detained at Texas airport

    Daniels says that common sense never seemed to enter the picture during the investigation: “Through all of this, no common sense ever kicked in. No one ever tested her wheelchair.” Daniels noted that wheelchairs are like the bottoms of shoes which pick up all sorts of things that they walk over. The wheelchair could very well have passed over the residues somewhere and then ended up on Shelbi's hands. Daniels was able to record the entire incident on her cell phone.

    Shelbi was distraught during the incident and felt that the TSA might separate her from her mother. At one point the agents called in a supervisor to deal with Daniels, obviously angry at her treatment. However, Daniels said: “Never once did I lose my composure with them. I never screamed at them – nothing. And the lady had the audacity to call who she called and tell them I was being hostile, which I find funny.” Finally, a bomb expert arrived, found nothing hazardous and the two were released.


    Unfortunately that last little bit is to be expected when you're dealing with insecure low-IQ rent-a-cops with authoritah.

    TSA screeners must think everyone is hostile since that seems to be a TSA screener's first fall back. TSA screeners need some adult supervision.

    It's good to be able to document the pattern of histrionics exhibited by TSA goons each and every time a U.S. citizen calmly and politely requests decent treatment. Every citizen with common sense and a spine who interacts with the TSA can't possible be "hostile" in the genuine sense of the world. Obviously this is a perception problem on the part of TSA goons.

    More of a chronic insecurity problem compounded that is to be expected when you place thousands of stupid people in positions of authoritah.
