TSA, on many occasions have been called careless when it comes to treat people properly. Now, people are realizing to their horror that the TSA don’t give a damn to even kids.
Do you expect your young son or daughter, being patted down as if he or she was a hardened criminal, with many cases piled up against him or her? To most people, this is a sight that will cause detestation and disgust.
Jennifer Williamson, who had to also undergo long session of extensive pat down on March 26 at Dallas Ford Worth Airport is livid with rage. The mother, who was simply shocked to see his young son undergoing a thorough Transportation Security Administration pat-down, shared her humiliation in social media posts.
The pat down on the young boy lasted for more than 120 seconds. If you are among the people who have been patted-down at any airport in the US, you can realize how the child and his mother both felt at the treatment.
Later, Jennifer Williamson, the child’s mother released a video showing the entire pat down procedure. Later, Jennifer Williamson told the media that the whole procedure was so lengthy that she and her kid lost the flight.
While talking about it, Jennifer Williamson said that her child is actually suffering from sensory processing disorder and had asked the TSA agents to screen her teenage son using a different technique, so he didn’t have to go through a noisy machine. Instead, the male TSA agent gave her son a pat-down. Her son was traumatized, according to her Facebook post. The video has now been viewed over 5.9 million times.
Later Jennifer Williamson added that her son and she were treated like dogs. “We were treated like dogs because I requested they attempt to screen him in other ways per TSA rules…He has SPD and I didn’t want my child given a pat down like this. Let me make something else crystal clear. He set off NO alarms. He physically did not alarm at all during screening, he passed through the detector just fine.”
She went on to add, “I am livid…Please, share… make this viral like the other children’s videos with TSA… I wish I had taped the entire interchange because it was horrifying. We had two DFW police officers that were called and flanking him on each side. Somehow these power tripping TSA agents who are traumatizing children and doing whatever they feel like without any cause, need to be reined in.” the mother told CBS News that TSA agents asked the child to undergo pat-down as he was carrying a laptop. The mother requested him to do it in a different way due to the child’s disorder that makes him sensitive to the touch.
