Mom says TSA Treated Family "Like Dogs" During Son's Pat-Down

 

As long as people put up with the perverted, corrupt TSA, this sort of thing will continue. This can be stopped in a matter of weeks, if people boycotted flying, but they won’t. They line up like sheep to be groped. – Shorty Dawkins

A mother is outraged with the Transportation Security Administration after she said officers treated her family “like dogs” at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. Jennifer Williamson posted a video to Facebook on Sunday that shows a TSA agent thoroughly patting down her 13-year-old son for about two minutes. She said her family spent about an hour at the checkpoint and missed their flight.

The TSA said the procedures performed by the officer in the video met new pat-down standards that went into effect earlier this month, reports CBS News correspondent Omar Villafranca. Instead of several variations, there is now just one full-body pat-down.

“We were treated with utter disrespect as if we were criminals,” Williamson said in an interview you’ll see only on “CBS This Morning.” She turned her anger into action, recording a TSA officer and posting it on Facebook. “I believe he was patted down excessively. They went over his sensitive areas, a little more than necessary, especially given that he wasn’t wearing bulky clothing or anything like that,” Williamson said.

Williamson said the whole thing started when agents found a laptop in his book bag as it went through the scanning machine. They then said her son would have to submit to a pat-down, even though he did not set off the body scanner. She requested they screen him in other ways because her son suffers from sensory processing disorder, which makes him sensitive to touch. In the Facebook video, the agent explained the procedure and then patted down his backside, front and down his legs. His supervisor who was observing them then instructed the man to complete the final step. As per policy, the TSA officer used the back of his hands for pat-downs over sensitive areas of the body. The TSA said the boy cooperated during the screening process and all approved procedures were followed. As for the wait time, in a statement, the agency said the passengers were at the checkpoint for “approximately 45 minutes, which included the time it took to discuss screening procedures with the mother and to screen three carry-on items that required further inspection.” “His first question to me was, ‘I don’t understand why they did this. I don’t know what I did wrong,’ and to me that was a sign of trauma for him to think that he had done anything wrong,” Williamson said.

  1. That shit does not happen in Israel. The Israels are smart enough to read peoples body language. Most of the agents are young people who are highly trained in observation. These kids are tested by the mosod on a regular bases. If they manage to get through a boarding inspection they are immediately fired. This must stop and US citizens most not tolerate this

  2. For those of you that didn’t know; this was supposed to stop after a certain date. The airlines could opt to run their own security.
    However, when the airlines began trying to do just that, the feds, (through the FAA), threatened to pull their licenses to fly.

  3. Another example of no outrage…just another story… no protests…just bemoaning. If you don’t like it, drive, bus, walk, train or whatever. Take away the airline revenue to send the message. Simple stuff. But like everything else in this country, everyone has an excuse why they continue to fly; continue to financially support youtube, facebood, twitter, and a thousand other criminals. “oh, but we have to” is the excuse. BS
