via Wire Update: I have a feeling there’s going to be a lot of these. According to the YouTube description:
Lets get the facts straight first. Before the video started the boy went through a metal detector and didn’t set it off but was selected for a pat down. The boy was shy so the TSA couldn’t complete the full pat on the young boy. The father tried several times to just hold the boys arms out for the TSA agent but i guess it didn’t end up being enough for the guy. I was about 30 ft away so i couldn’t hear their conversation if there was any. The enraged father pulled his son shirt off and gave it to the TSA agent to search, thats when this video begins.
This is sure to enrage lots of parents and it should. I mean, gimme a break. I understand the need for security, but geez, this is such overkill. It’s really starting to feel like an incompetent administration, who doesn’t want to have another bombing attempt on their watch, going to extraordinary means to ensure they don’t look bad. I mean, yeah, it’s about the American public’s safety, but it is also starting to feel political as well.
