TSA REPORTEDLY DETAINS WHEELCHAIR-BOUND 3-YEAR-OLD GIRL, ORDERS PARENTS NOT TO VIDEOTAPE PAT-DOWN. Looks like the TSA pedophiles may be trying to save the country via one nefarious looking wheelchair bound child at a time. Meanwhile, we wonder if any Muslims walked right by security with nary a glance? We also wonder why they’re so afraid of being filmed while patting down children?

There should be an IQ test for TSA agents. Some people don’t have the brains that God gave geese. Poor little girl and the poor parents as well.

What a bunch of Jack-Booted thugs, thus why they hire people too stupid to have morals.

Careful, PH… Geo. H.W. Bush will resign his membership from whatever club you’re leading for calling these federal workers “Jack-Booted thugs” and you wouldn’t want that now, would you?

G.W. Bush isn’t much better, this TSA Debacle was his idea.

In talking with a number of fellow L.E.O’s at a terrorist update conference, it appears that TSA is getting what would be the bottom of the barrel as far as employees go. Several told me of dealings with TSA at airports and just how unbelievable stupid some of these folks are, they “think” they are law enforcement officers, when in actuality they are overpaid security guards. The hiring requirements are the same as security guards and a good number of these folks did NOT make it in law enforcement or were not qualified, mainly because of background issues, arrests, drug use etc. From the way it sounds (and I have not looked at the requirements) the standards were lowered to fill the slots (which you see in a lot of civil service positions.

In talking with other cops, they related stories of TSA agents demanding unlawful arrests, trying to seize video and audio recordings (illegal under Kalifornia law) actually laughing at people they had detained, accusing people of trying to smuggle too much shampoo…(now theres a real crime) items go missing during the search like cell phones and video cameras and there is no explanation, even when you call to complain, in one case TSA threatened arrest and federal prison time to a party that was complaining about a missing video camera…They are arrogant, self serving and most have a very large chip on their shoulder. They are “Wanna-be” cops and have done nothing but a dis-service to the flying public. I would not trust most of them as far as I could throw them. I was detained once in Sacramento because I had a flat badge in my pocket (I carry it off duty along with my I.D.) and I was not carrying a gun at the time. Once of them said my badge didn’t look real, they contacted my Chief who tore the guy who called a new ass and then the Chief made a formal complaint with TSA. We still have not been informed of the results. The guy who took the call told me (when he gave back my stuff) Boy you cops think your special don’t ya? I just looked at him and said, apparently not as special as you. what a bunch of idiots. I am sure there are good TSA agents, but I have yet to meet one or hear of one and I have to qualify that because just like our business you only hear about the bad ones, very seldom hear about the good ones.

I guess the TSA must have gotten a ton of shit about this because this is now on Fox..

My ex wife is a semi-cheese at one of the local airports. That should tell you all you need to know about who they hire.

As an aside. Years ago my briefcase tested + for gunpowder residue with one of their wipes at San Jose airport and got pulled aside.

You’d think it would have been a RAMBO cluster****, but they were actually very nice and asked if they could search the briefcase. Of course I said sure, there isn’t anything inside that’s a problem, go for it.

Then 2 SJPD showed up. One asked me if I had guns. I said not on me of course but yup, and I keep this briefcase in a gun safe that has ammo inside, thus the gunpowder residue.

He said “well, that explains that” and they left even before the TSA decided I wasn’t a threat. I got on the plane, no drama.

Does this girl fit some sort of DHS profile criteria?

That seems to be the only criteria.

She’s white and her family is white. Complaining agent claiming videotaping was illegal? Low class black. She had a little percieved power and was going to stick it to whitey. That is so awful. This little girl will never forget her trip to Disney, for all the wrong reasons. Notice all they had to do was give her her lovie and she stopped crying. Traumatized for no reason and I bet the agent still has her job.

This needs to be go viral and in a huge way. There is no reason for such shitty treatment of this child. These fools have stepped over the line and have stepped in it.

They (TSA) wish to start roaming “safety checks” and road blocks. When one of these super troopers actually has to face a harden criminal or a drug mule who has no intentions of going down with out taking someone with them, we will see just what a bunch of pussies they are.

When I have to fly into Austin TX to see my oldest and grand daughter it never ever fails, I get a secondary check. My identification is right there in plain sight. What really gets to me, is the so called pat frisk. Hell the last time, I just couldn’t resist myself and had to tell the guy he was doing it all wrong. At which point he asked me if I was a LEO. Then he happens to look down and there on his nice little stand is my LEO identification. The look was like “Oh shit, this guy really does know what he’s doing and just how much of a screw up I’ve been”.

NotSoSilent is correct, these are want to bes and they are on a pure power trip.

McDonald’s couldn’t teach them how to pull fries when the buzzer went off, so they got jobs at TSA. I have never flown on a commercial airplane, but if I ever do, you can bet I’ll have my phone shooting video throughout the check-in process. I think everyone should, every time. And make sure you get faces and badges.

I said it before, if that was my kid, I’d be in Federal Prison right now.
