“The one thing TSA has been successful at is violating the rights and personal privacy of the American people. Instead of worrying about ‘political correctness,’ TSA should be putting our resources into intelligence and technologies that could be more effective when it comes to catching highly elusive and dangerous terrorists.”

“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.

Her husband, Nathan Forck, said Lucy was treated unfairly.

“It bothers me that my daughter was singled out, specifically because she is in a wheelchair,” Forck said.

The family says the final straw came when agents refused to return Lucy’s stuffed animal Lamby, even though it had already been scanned.”
