TSA threatens to pat down my 3 year old daughter

Specifically BECAUSE she is in a wheelchair. At one point she is crying "I don't want to go to Disney World!" The moral of this video is that you can and SHOULD stand up to the TSA goons. Ultimately, they backed down from patting her down and just swabbed her wheelchair (a violation too, I know). The TSA agent that said she was going to pat her down said that it was illegal to record her (BS!) and then lied about saying she was going to pat her down. How is this not discrimination/profiling disabled people?

What if everyone stood up to these bullies? Do you think it would change things?

certainly not going to condemn you for flying..

but i think the idea is that if enough people stopped flying at once, the air lines would feel a financial hit large enough to force the them to address the dissatisfaction of their customers. the airlines themselves, paired with an angry citizenry in theory, could be enough to remove (or considerably diminish) the tsa's presence.

would it work? i don't know. a lot of people would have to inconvenience themselves.

but i definitely think it's vital that people keep video taping those thugs. so good job.

I get the idea but

I think standing up to them en masse would be more effective.

There has been a rash of exploding 3 year olds recently and your daughter does kind of look like a terrorist...

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

try the train

Well the..

Well the trains where I live are run by Scamtrak, another government agency which provides the worst service possible.

tsa is fraught all sorts of molesterers

liberty minded candidates need alot of victories in the next several coming election years to turn this behmouth govt around

airports are needless stress just like tax code compliance

All of government

All of government is, most particularly the military. If you are incapable of being employed in the free market, you suck on the government teat.

Those who can, do.
Those who can't, teach.
Those who can't teach, teach PE.
Those who can't teach PE, go to work for the government.

I catch

I catch a lot of grief from my friends and family for not flying anymore. If enough people simply stopped flying this insanity would come to an abrupt halt.

There are too many douche bags out there who can come up with so many reasons as to why they "have" to fly. If these boobs would tell their employers that they cannot be required to surrender their civil rights as a condition of employment then the employers would have to accommodate them with either private planes, additional time to travel via train, boat, bus or car or find themselves a defendant in a civil lawsuit. The problem is there are too many selfish people who are willing to trade their children's future for money.

Shame on all of you lightweight fair-weather patriots. May your children curse your name each time it is mentioned.

How Much Tyranny Are You Going To Take Before You Wake Up?!

Stupid is a s stupid does...Americans are cowardly. There is no hope for liberty as long as we are a nation of cowards..

Cowards: Weak before the strong
Bullies: Strong before the weak

When the TSA started with the body scanners and the pat downs I refused to take anymore flights down south. I told everyone at work to do the same. They lookd at me funny and laughed.

I told them when they begin to squezze you balls until they ache and zap you with enough radiation or x-ray to give you cancer, don't come and complaining to me.

Your all a bunch of sheeple..Slaves to the state..I said if you don't like what I say, fire me.

I'm still there and now they can't look me into the eye anymore..

SHEEPLE!!! The reek of fear..

American! Only in name only...

You answered your own question

"What if everyone stood up to these bullies? Do you think it would change things?"

The problem with "AMERICANS" I see is OVERWHELMING FEAR/COMPLACENCY and a LACK of UNITY. Read some of the comments here: http://www.dailypaul.com/274899/historic-case-to-challenge-b... and you'll see what I mean.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. -Martin Luther King, Jr.

Someone on youtube

commented that if the mother had just calmed her daughter down and let TSA do their job then it would all have been over in a few minutes.
I'm afraid I couldn't reply there. Too mad!

Is that person some kind of nut?????

Is he the kind of person that would tell their daughter -
"That's ok honey, just lie still and the man will finish raping you real soon and we can be on our way!"

Or am I the wrong one here?

A two year old!!!? What ever happened to probable cause?

And all because of some false flag "terrorist" event!!

That's the mentality

Everyone's in a rush and people don't want to be inconvenienced. As someone else here said, "Don't hold up the line". A common ploy to get everyone else on their side and make you look like the bad guy causing trouble.

If someone

If someone said: "Don't hold up the line." I would ask them to please go intercourse themselves.

Perhaps we should make our own airport?

Perhaps we should make an airport that doesn't molest people. That would be great. Perhaps we make our own government and screw this one.

They fight for our freedom.

They fight for our freedom.

This is disgusting

Only a nation of sheep tolerates it.

don't fly

why are people still flying when they know this is part of the deal?

if enough stopped using the airlines, they'd get the hint.

Not the answer

What will you do once the TSA spreads to bus and train stations and high way checkpoints as they already are:

We need to fight injustice not run away from it.

peace + liberty = prosperity

I disagree

We have a right to travel but we don't have a right to fly. I think the courts are saying 'No" to stopping cars absent probable cause. If they don't, I see a huge pile of dead cops in America's future.

I would like to see states enact laws that mandate that everyone boarding any aircraft must be subjected to identical scrutiny each time. That would include the POTUS and his family and entire entourage, all law enforcement pilots, all military pilots, all celebrities, and all the 1 percenters boarding private aircraft.

In Washington State, what TSA does is a direct violation of the Washington State Constitution however when I asked our previous AG, Rob the RINO McKenna, to order TSA to stop, he elected to dispatch to me a moronic form letter telling me how TSA is making me safe from terrorists. Needless to say that despite being an elected Republican PCO, I did not vote for him and he got defeated in his bid to become Washington's governor last November. Boo the freekin hoo Bobby. Grow a pair and act like an adult and you just might get some support from REAL Republicans.

"TSA is making me safe from

"TSA is making me safe from terrorists" and under direct control of domestic terrorists...the TSA

Totally

Agree.

"Its easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled."
Mark Twain

While I agree

that we can cut back on flights, if you have to go a long distance you have no other option, and why should we not be able to? Let the people who are scared avoid flying!

"Endless money forms the sinews of war." - Cicero, www.freedomshift.blogspot.com

People get what they deserve.

What I saw and heard on the video:

1. Complete and utter violation of the 4th Amendment.

2. Complacency.

3. A desire to have your dignity and body violated 'explained' just to make you feel better about it.

4. Courteous/respectful to the mob agents.."ok..ok".

Final outcome: At the beginning of the request, or at the end, you were violated. In fact, tsa became MORE powerful the longer that this went on. And fellow Americans who were there and witnessed this had not a care in the world ie: why are YOU holding up the line! Just a couple of more times going through this, the little ones will consider this normal and expected.
