WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The grandmother of a 4-year-old girl who became hysterical during a security screening at a Kansas airport says security agents forced her to undergo a pat-down, and even yelled at the child and called her an uncooperative suspect.

The incident has been attracting increasing media and online attention since the child's mother, Michelle Brademeyer of Montana, detailed the ordeal in a public Facebook post last week.

Defending themselves doesn’t make it right.

TSA don’t need defending, they need DEFUNDING.

Brought to you courtesy of Big Government...you know, the “compassionate” ones, who want to make all your healthcare decisions for you.

Wake up, America.

Family Misses Flight After TSA Gives Pat-Down To Girl With Cerebral Palsy

TSA screeners at LAX arrested for narcotics trafficking, accepting bribes

This is nothing but security theater. TSA is nothing more than a Bush administration jobs program for the chronically unemployed.

Of course they did. Why don't they just go out and shoot peoples' dogs?

When we look back it started going to hell when Reagan was forced to take Bush One. And if we get Romney it will just continue.

The elections of 2010 mean nothing. The only hope is a true third party, er, I mean second party.

Why blame the civil libertarians???? I blame everyone who goes to the airport and voluntarily subjects themselves to the TSA. If everyone would simply boycott flying, then you would see some changes....dontcha think???

I could not agree with you more.

I am more appalled by the parents that would allow their children to be put through such horror. I have no sympathy for the whole fiasco. The fast answer to solve the issue is for everyone to stop flying. The sudden plunge in people flying would get quick action by the airlines. Instead, we confirm to big government that we the people are sheep to be herded. I refuse to fly. Period. And I will not fly as long as this mentality persists.

It’s conditioning for unquestioning obedience to authority. You know, like, “March into the showers.”

Right is right no matter how many are against it and WRONG is WRONG no matter how many are for it. This is the latter.

How much longer? How much more?

Nice graphic but not accurate. They are coming for drivers next.

It is the “Transporation Security Agency” no the “Airline Security Agency”.

We either disband this mob of Nazi Stormtroops or we see them extend their power to all forms of transportation. It is one or the other. There is no middle ground. They are only starting with airlines, but they will extend their power to trains, buses and private cars if we don’t snuff out these Nazi thugs.
