A 12-year-old girl who uses a wheelchair was detained for nearly an hour at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport by Transportation Security Administration agents who said they detected traces of bomb residue on her hands, according to her mother.
MyFoxDFW.com reports that Shelbi Walser, who suffers from a genetic bone disorder, was traveling with her mother from Texas to Florida for medical treatment Dec. 8 when she was prevented from proceeding through a security checkpoint.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THOSE PEOPLE?
The Story of Your Enslavement
Eating/holding hot dogs could cause that to happen.
Have any reloaders had problems getting through the checks?
"The application for funding from the TSA constitutes a preliminary step toward systematically expanding TSA's authority from airports to highways and almost every other means of public travel. The expansion would erase one of the last remaining differences between the US and a total police state; namely, the ability to travel internally without being under police surveillance. The total police state you experience at airports wants to spill into roads and bus stops, to subways and trains. Or, rather, the TSA wants to solidify and spread the fledgling and erratic presence it already has."
I hope she checked to make sure her iPad was still in her bookbag.
This is only going to get worse and worse UNTIL people start refusing to fly if they don’t absolutely have to .
If people refused to fly and put up with this the airlines would have no choice but to try to put a stop to this and go back to providing their own security .
If you stop feeding the beast it starves .
don’t let your children play with explosives
Saw her and her mom on FoxBiz last night. She was clearly a threat. /sarc
What is wrong with these people is they are sadists bent on creating as much emotional distress as possible. The so-called response was a piece of wallpaper intended to dissuade any and all criticism. The only meaningful fix for this is an absolute boycott of airline travel. This will force the airlines to throw out the malicious TSB and install legitimate, professional screening that will discover terrorism. To date millions of US citizens have been discomfited, embarrased and emotionally scarred with not one single act of terrorism discovered.
The problem is not that the girl may have been a terrorist. A 10 second unintrusive evaluation would have proven otherwise. That this wheelchair bound child was terrorized, threatened, bullied and severely emotionally damaged serves to demonstrate the underlying agenda of the TSA.
This harassment has been repeated thousands of times resulted in thousands of badly frightened citizens. Counseling and compensation services should be demanded in court filings to cover emotional distress deliberately induced by TSA employees, policy and procedures.
Pictured here is the first TSA hire under the new SPOT program. Harvey Schmegma, was a former participant in the Pentagons controversial program featured in the recent film Men Who Stare at Goats. Due to his excellent resume and prior experience in a similar program, Mr. Schmegma will begin service as TSAs National Training Supervisor. Schmegma, who claims to have killed over a dozen goats during his Army service, also admitted to an unfortunate accident involving a cherished pet. I was angry at my dog for peeing on my copy of the 255 pound TSA training manual and stared at him just a wee bit too hard. Damned if he didnt just keel over and die. Through tears and a voice choked in emotion, Mr. Schmegma, blurted out Dogs name was Spot so I took that as a sign that I was destined for this new TSA program. They want me to wear dark glasses so that doesnt happen to any passengers. He begins a 3 day training course at Boston Logan Airport next week.
Marine Double Amputee Humiliated to Point of Tears on Delta Flight Gets Helping Hand From Fellow Vets

Marine Lance Cpl. Christian Brown Gets Help From Fellow Vets Following Delta Treatment
Facebook: Marine Lance Cpl. Christian Brown
I have been flying with Delta for a gazillion years and this crew treated Chris worse than youd treat any thing, not even any body. That was the opening line of retired Army Lt. Col. Keith Gafford, during a phone interview about the egregious treatment on Delta Airlines of fellow veteran, Marine Lance Cpl. Christian Brown, who is now a double amputee following severe injuries acquired while serving in Afghanistan.
I did 27 years in the military. I have seen a lot of things and have seen a lot of guys die, but I have never seen a Marine cry, added Gafford. What the kid said was, I have given everything that I can give and this is the way I am being treated? This is how I will be treated for the rest of my life?
Gaffords stern words came in defense of Brown, who just last Sunday was humiliated to the point of tears during a Delta flight from Atlanta to Washington. According to the Washington Post, the Marine was treated disrespectfully and clumsily when he was wheeled to the very back of the plane.
To make matters worse, retired Army Col. Nickey Knighton, who along with Gafford were on board at the time provided a detailed and scathing customer care report to Delta after other vets attempted to move Brown from coach to a first class seat offered by another flyer, but were refused by the in-flight crew. WaPo provides context including the fact that Brown was ill with a 104 degree temperature at the during the flight:
He’s “Gurning.” Google it.
I have. I was leaving Norfolk and they swabbed my laptop and found residue. I had no idea what was going on until the TSA guy asked if I had been fertilizing my yard or garden. It dawned on me then, so I explained that I had been entering reload data into my laptop the day before. I never thought to wipe my computer off...now I make sure I do.
In this case, I think the TSA people did what they are supposed to do...investigate a positive swab.
Bookmarked for later viewing.
I have been there since this farce started. I flew once since then and that was enough. No more until this garbage stops.
But this keeps us safe (/s)
The problem: the TSA is evolving into a thuggy 3rd world type 'State Police Organization'. I'm surprised we're not being forced to 'show papers' while traveling between cities. That's probably next. These types follow predictable paths...
Same type of corruption - the power to push their fellow citizen around goes to their head... We're becoming a creepy place to raise children... Cultural suicide is next...
I’ve been starving that beast since 1999. I’m not saying I would never fly, but I doubt you have enough money to pay me to.
Too bad the GOP doesn’t take Obama’s gestopo on. They should listen to Rand Paul. But they hate him, instead.
They are global fascists and can’t figure out why they can’t beat the other fascists who are into this ritualistic sexual molestation and abuse of women and children. But they let the Dems be the party of women!!!!!!! Look at this!
Coming home from an overseas (official government) business trip and passing thru Dulles airport, I prepared for the required screening.
Removed my laptop from it’s bag. Put everything in the provided boxes so it could be x-rayed.
Took off my shoes, watch, and belt. Pants started to sag, was really afraid they were going to drop in the scanner. Emptied my pockets, I just love leaving my wallet and passport out of my possession. Only metal left on me was my wedding band, which won’t come off.
So I pass through the scanner and they stop me. They have to feel my armpits.
MY ARMPITS!!!!! WTF?
Only thing I can figure is the aluminum found in anti-perspirants.
Even before the TSA Gestapo I hated to fly.
