TSA Abducted Child From Mother For Secret Pat Down

If anyone else abducted someone’s child and then sexually molested them they would be rightly called a pedophile and locked up for a long time, but when the government does it not only is it deemed acceptable, but it also trains a whole generation of children that being kidnapped by an adult and having their genitals groped is normal.
The TSA’s refusal to spare young children from invasive and degrading pat downs that have outraged Americans is fundamentally impacting parents’ efforts to protect their kids from sexual predators.
The shocking video last week of a 3-year-old girl screaming “don’t touch me” as a TSA agent aggressively pats her down was matched by equally disturbing footage which emerged yesterday of a young boy being frisked by TSA workers while half-naked.
These images not only remind us of the fact that, as the Drudge Report highlighted last week, the terrorists have won, but they also threaten to legitimize the sexual molestation of children, so long as it’s performed by someone in uniform.
Indeed, the TSA not only targets children for pat down procedures that amount to little less than perverted fondling, they also do so after removing the child completely from its parents in some cases.
In a chilling story that took place last year but was re-posted on the CNN iReport website today, a mother described how a male TSA agent abducted her son in order to carry out a secret pat down on him while she was forced to stay behind as she became hysterical and began to hyperventilate.
The incident took place at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson airport after a woman was told to wait in a holding area for setting off a metal detector because she was holding her young son who had a pacifier clip hanging from his t-shirt.
I told the TSA agent, who asked me to back up and walk through again, “It’s my son’s pacifier clip, can I put it on the conveyor belt?” the woman writes. “Ma’am turn around and come back please,” I was told.
Although there were four TSA agents standing around doing nothing, the woman was forced to wait and quickly became worried that she would miss her flight, which was scheduled to leave in 45 minutes. She was unable to even collect her own belongings as TSA workers ignored her pleas, one stating, “Ma’am you need to wait. I don’t care about your departure time.”

When the woman and her small child were finally allowed to leave the plastic box they had been confined to, TSA agents still refused to allow the woman to even sit near her belongings.
“Ma’am, can someone please just search me so we can be on our way? We are going to miss our flight,” I said.
The female agent then called an older gentleman, also a TSA agent over. The male TSA agent stood in front of me and said “I’m going to have to pat down your son.”
With Jackson still sitting in my lap (he was being so good despite all of this chaos) I said ok and continued to hold on to my son, expecting the male TSA agent to start touching Jackson.
He then told me, “I’m going to have to pick him up to inspect him.”
I rolled my eyes and sternly told him “It’s his pacifier clip that went off, can’t you just run that back through the belt and let us go. We are going to miss our flight.”
The female TSA agent, who had been standing there the entire time said to me, “You need to adjust your attitude and do as you are told.”
The male TSA agent repeated, “I’m going to have to pick him up to inspect him.”
Despite the fact that the TSA’s website states, “We will not ask you to do anything that will separate you from your child or children,” the man then took the boy and walked off with him, leaving the mother in tears as the child screamed for her.
When the woman loudly protested at the fact that her son had been abducted, she was told by one of the female TSA workers, “Ma’am you need to calm down or I’m going to have to involve the authorities.” The TSA screener then forced her to unbutton her jeans during a personal search.
The mother became hysterical, nearly blacking out as she suffered an anxiety attack, before the TSA worker finally brought back her son as he started yelling, “Mommy!”
Yelling obscenities at every single TSA agent in sight as she sobbed uncontrollably, the woman made it onto her plane with just minutes to spare and had no time to file a formal complaint.
Given the fact that TSA agents are already abusing even their own guidelines by physically putting their hands down people’s pants and directly touching their genitals, expect more parents to experience similar horrors as those described here in the run up to Thanksgiving.
TSA workers have continually proven that they are an unprofessional, poorly trained, abusive and savage federal goon squad who are completely incapable of providing proper security, excelling instead at harassing innocent travelers and treating Americans worse than farmyard animals.
Not only do the policies that have earned the TSA the reputation of perhaps the most loathed federal entity in America need to be thrown out, but the agency itself needs to be abolished altogether, otherwise we’re going to see a whole generation of children being trained that it’s OK for the nice man in the uniform to touch their private parts.
