Child in wheelchair detained by TSA agents

This little girl in the wheelchair supposedly had bomb residue on her hands so the TSA pulled her aside, wouldn’t let her mom get close to her, and the little girl just cried in front of an airport full of passengers. The mom said that the TSA never checked her wheelchair despite the supposed bomb residue on her hands.

This is why I don’t fly:

    The TSA is the enemy of the state. Either get rid of their useless a$$es or boycott flying altogether. The only reason why the TSA gets away with their crap, is because people aren’t resisting.

  • Amberson

    I’m with you, Scoop. I will not fly until I can afford to go charter.

  • colliemum

    It’s beyond belief: a twelve-year old girl in a wheelchair being treated like that.

    When this all started, there were many why said the best way would be profiling, like El Al does. But nooooo – that was ‘discriminatory’ and ‘racist’. So now all except burkha-clad females (if they are females, they cannot be touched) are suspect, and common sense on the part of the TSA employees is simply non-existent.

    Yep – no more flying, and tell the airlines why you’re not using them any longer.

    Some of us have to fly, for example, those of us with children in the military. These situations are creating exactly the fear some people want us to have. I never fly without the name of my attorney, a former JAG officer.

    • Orangeone

      If I were you I’ve have that phone dialed and the attorney on the line while going through security.

      I do not fly any longer. If I cannot get there by car, I don’t travel.

  • Sandra123456

    Profiling is good.

    Stopping white 12 year old girls in wheelchairs doesn’t fit the profile of a terrorist.

    Better recheck whatever that flawed test was.

    • Orangeone

      But the moooslims in burkas do! Stop 100% of them, tell them they have to surrender all privacy rights in order to fly, just like is done to Christians. To do otherwise is discrimination based on religion.

  • Nukeman60

    Well, we all know that when the TSA goes Union that their methods will improve ten-fold, don’t we? I mean, really. A Union TSA would have just punched the little girl and then sent her on her way. (/sarc)

    The government wants to curtail our flying. It controls us better. When we all start saying we will refuse to fly, it hurts the airline industry (and our economy) and keeps us corralled in a small area (especially when they necessarily skyrocket the price of gasoline) – a two-fold win for Obama.

    • Orangeone

      The airlines will then fight back and push for airline-controlled security and the TSA will be tossed on their butts.

  • I have to admit, she does look like a Muslim Terrorist! Don’t let the fact that she’s American, white, a little girl fool you! Those TSA agents are way too smart to fall for that disguise! If I need to write /sarc. on this, we’re in more trouble than I thought.

    Abolish the TSA! They do NOTHING for security! They haven’t caught a single g-d terrorist since it’s creation! All they do is harass, feel up, grope, men women and children in the name of “security”… ARRRGGGHH!! I just want to punch something!

    • Orangeone

      And notice the “man-looking female” in the background? And then there is a man with 2 black moooslim bracelets on his arm less than 6″ from the little girl.

    Glenn Beck is a POS! (See link)

    Can’t believe I was ever taken in by the man, even granted I saw through him pretty quickly, (See Beck’s disingenuous take on Birther issue).

    • las1

      So Beck disappoints you on this one or two points and he’s a pos. Does your opinion extend to Andrew Breitbart as well who had the exact position that Beck had on these two questions. Are you making the imperfect the enemy of the good? Just asking.

      • stage9

        It isn’t “more division” within the Conservative movement! It’s more infiltration by UNCONSERVATIVE values seeping into the Conservative movement!

        We whine and moan about RINO’s holding the same values as “liberals” and then we turn around and embrace the SAME values as the liberal?

        That’s imbecilic and that’s why there’s division!

        I don’t even think most people even understand what the values of a Conservative is.

        • las1

          Stage9… I was focsing on the guest’s use of the term pos. If the “guest” commenter were to call… say… David Frum a “pos” then he would get no argument from me. Because Frum is definitely not a conservative, but he’s much worse than just a RINO. He’s a self-conscious progressive posing as a conservative whose intent is to undermine and destroy conservatives. That makes him a pos.

          But Beck IS a conservative and not a RINO. And my question still stands. Why hold the good hostage to the imperfect?

          We will never agree on every thing. If we were to say that Beck is flat out wrong on this or that issue… I could go with that and work to convince him (or people like him). But I just can’t agree with the circular firing squad. And while authentic conservative Republicans need to clean house of the RINOs… turning on other conservatives who may be wrong about a few things is not a good idea and has led precisely to where we are right now imho.

          Here’s a good video on how to approach our opponents… even the leftists. Breitbart was villified by the left, but he had respect for those who articulated a good position even if he disagreed.

  • sjmom

    Drawing board, no; scrapping it, YES! The TSA is now the enemy of the people and we are going to have to find a way to treat them as such.

  • las1

    I’m sure that an El Al security team doing their own method of security intake, using suspect profiling before she boarded, would have pulled her out and detained her as well. What’s the problem? [sarc. now off]

  • Meanwhile, some guy named Mohammed probably walked on the plane carrying a bomb. Just terrible.

  • unclesamnephew

    i just might have to fly soon for a family issue. too far to drive, too little time. i am trying to decide to dress up in muslim bee keeping outfit, or go naked. which ever i bet we who visit here at TRS are on a do not fly list

  • Sober_Thinking

    I stopped flying too… it’s just not worth it.

    This is criminal. So stupid.

  • The Emperor from Star Wars would have been so proud of the TSA. Storm Troopers seem to be the order of the day for this Administration and the last one too.

  • mikeinidaho

    The TSA – another group of union goons working for Obama.

  • dave kenny

    TSA are Obama’s troopers
    Most are black, trained by muslim backed companies
    and it is white travellers who are targeted
    They are the face of the enemy that is bearing down on us

  • Army_Pilot1967

    Way to go, TSA, another terrorist nabbed before she could bomb an airplane (Sacr)!!!!!

  • TimeForAnarchy

    Stultifying inane. Just simply incredible.

    Unions, anyone?

  • OldmanRick

    If there were bomb residue, the young lady pick it up from the wheels of her wheelchair. Makes one wonder what material is being used to clean the floors of the terminal.

  • NJK

    This is the stealth terror attack by the Muslim in the White House. He’s been committing the stealth Jihad from within. He’s got the Muslim Brotherhood in DHS. We have traitors making up one part of the govt., and cowardly incompetent boobs make up the rest. Do you think if this was a Muslim or minority child this would happen? No. Zero and his leftist members of the Weathermen and his MB ilk are out to get white people.

    How do we know they’re not using innocent school children as collateral damage now? Don’t put it past him.

  • NJK

    Do you remember the little girl with leg braces several months ago. This is intentional, to terrorize Americans and white people.

  • 12grace

    TSA= obama brown shirts!

  • Get out of the air & put your feet back on the ground. Hit them in their pocket book$.

  • aZjimbo

    Absolutely sickening. This crap has got to stop.

  • Jay

    Anybody remember the SNL skit where the nuns are searched at the airport while the smugglers go by? Rather prophetic in my view.

    • I could be wrong, but I think you’re thinking of a scene from the movie “Airplane!”

      This is the clip from the airport security scanner scene:

  • bobemakk

    The TSA should be reprimanded for this. They are all fools who don’t even know how to a proper job. This poor little girl went through hell for no reason.

  • Landscaper

    Is common sense not possible anymore?

    A wheelchair has wheels. The wheels come in contact with the ground, alot of ground. People in wheelchairs [hands] come in contact with the wheels. There’s no telling what she rolled through that could cause a “positive test” result.

    • We’re talking TSA “agents” here… you know, one step up from Zombies, but half as intelligent! 🙁

  • Biggbear52

    This is beyond despicably wrong. It is awesomely criminal in some way I am quite sure. I can only thank God that this was not my child as I would have gone into combat mode and tossed into jail. The TSA actually TERRORIZED this sweet little girl, her mother and anyone else with them. This is NOT how our country’s travel ways is supposed to work. This crud is being socialized because some chick scared piece of nothing is forcing it upon all of us. The really stupis thing that all WE have to do is say NO I will not submit!

  • kong1967

    I’ve got an explanation, they’re a bunch of fu***ng idiots.

    This is not a good night. I get more and more pi**ed off as I go through these videos tonight. I am not proud to be an American at this point. This is flat out dispicable. Our government is so big it doesn’t know what to do with itself.
