But why did the father even let this happen? Had this been me and my 12 year old daughter, they would have been arresting me. And for far worse than refusing a search or simple assault.
I know it fouls up plans, you lose money. But why didn't the father just flip them off and walk out? Why didn't any other passengers say whoa, enough, you're out of line?
A cop cannot just stop you on the street and demand he pat you down, nor pull you over and insist he search your car without probable cause. The FBI cannot insist they come into your home and serarch it without a warrant which cannot be obtained without probable cause.
Yet that is exactly what the TSA is allowed to do. Assume everyone is up to no good until proven otherwise. In the name of security they are allowed to do things that would be thrown out in a criminal trial and probably get the cop fired. And it is not making us any safer.
America is becoming so cowed by government intrusiveness and invasion of our lives that we no longer even defend our children from what is tantamount to assualt, and sexual sssault at that. Afraid of what they might do. We're not even recognizing it as wrong. Numbed down and dumbed down to thinking THIS is the new normal and it's ok even though unsavory.
So, all you idiots who see nothing wrong with this, if we don't say stop, enough and draw the line now then how long until it becomes commonplace throughout all facets of our lives?How long until you think you've given up too much liberty for little to no security?
description from the person who filmed it:
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.
Just another one of the little inconveniences we put up with for the pleasure of living with all the nice Moderate Muslims we get the joy of sharing our lives with here in the USA.
