“Schulte says it all started when TSA agents asked to pat down Lucy and screen her wheelchair. Schulte asked to tape it, she said, but an agent didn’t like that.
“In the clip, an agent tells Schulte “it’s illegal to do that.” She then tells the agent that they cannot touch her daughter unless she can record it.
“The problem is I don’t allow anyone to touch my little daughter without being able to record it,” she said.

The proper response should have been to tell them to get out of line; that they weren't getting on a plane.

Yeah those people don't need their civil rights anyhow.

Check out Sharp v. Baltimore and the DOJ letter accompanying it (Mar 2012) that reiterates the citizens have the RIGHT under the 1st, 4th, and 14th Amendments to record police (this would apply to the TSA as well)......and that the DOJ will prosecute officers infringing on those rights to include for theft and false imprisonment if they confiscate the device/detain the recording individual, AND that erasure of info on recording devices is obstruction of justice. The DOJ specifically requested the court not proceed and the charges against Sharp be dropped; DOJ released the memorandum to put LEO on notice that WE The People Do Have the Right to record their activities.......this is even from the scoundrels in Holder's DOJ.

If you further fail to see what our RIGHTS are, see Smith v. Cumming 11th Circuit 2000, and Fordyce v. Seattle 9th Circuit 1995 where such recordings were held to be "a matter of public interest."
