Look, I get it. Common sense says that little girl was not a problem. We’ve tossed out common sense for political correctness. However, while I understand the parents being uncomfortable, them making a big deal over this and dragging it out for a half hour, only terrified the little girl. If they wanted to complain later, it would have been been better. The little girl didn’t know what was going on, and I know I would have been scared as a kid in that situation with my parents arguing and officers with gloves on standing there. If I was her parent, I’d tell her they weren’t going to hurt her and were just checking her as they check everybody to make sure that no bad things are brought on the plane and the plane is safe for everyone.
Yes, because all little girls should learn to submit to government employees at the earliest opportunity, no matter what said employees do to them.
You and yours can go before me into the cattle cars to prove that they’re safe! Thanks. I’ll pass!
