Here's what I wanna know: how could the mother film her daughter crying for 6 minutes, leaving her daughter in distress at the hands (literally, look at the purple gloves in another photo) of these ____?
The answer? Here’s a hint: a chance at 15 minutes of fame!
Because the mother probably would have been arrested.
What if she hadn’t taped the episode? Her (the family’s) word vs the TSA staff? There was nothing anyone could have done to help the little girl, short of leaving the airport. They would have forfeited their entire vacation and TSA was doing a good job of ruining it already. The entire family was there and TSA was in complete control of them, as they are of all passenger. The TSA agent even told the mother she couldn’t tape what was going on.
Guess you haven’t flown lately. Any attempt by Mom to assist her persecuted child would’ve resulted in her arrest, and the entire family subjected to even worse treatment. These sadistic TSA people are the worst among us, and have the most power to impact citizens’ lives on a day-to-day level. We’re being primed to STFU when “they” come to our doors. Apparently, it’s working, since nobody stepped in to help the kid.
Maybe the mom’s video will have more long-term impact than any other action she’d have taken. These are the things libs need to see. Aren’t they for “the children”, after all?
