TSA Abuses another Disabled Child “Terrorist” Suspect

Like autumn leaves in a forest the TSA abuses of innocent American children and their hapless families keep piling up one outrageous case after another in the specious guise of national homeland security.

My last post described what happened recently to a four-year-old toddler and her family after the little girl antagonized the TSA thugs because she hugged her grandma on the wrong side of the security zone. The assault was merciless upon the terrified crying baby suspected unreasonably of trying to smuggle an imaginary hand gun on the aircraft passed to her from grandma.

The more she cried to worse it got for her from the unrelenting goons. And mother wasn’t allowed to comfort her baby.

“TSA has reviewed the incident and determined that our officers followed proper current screening procedures in conducting a modified pat-down on the child,” claimed the statist agency.

Before that incident was my post about a three-year-old disabled and wheelchair bound suspected “terrorist” toddler on his way to Disney World with mom, dad and young siblings. That poor little baby endured his own horrific terror experience at the hands of TSA Chicago Midway International Airport security goons when he was manhandled, searched, frisked, patted down, swabbed and groped like a common criminal while his mortified family looked upon the assault and battery helplessly.

They also weren’t allowed to comfort the little boy during his terrifying ordeal.

“TSA has reviewed the incident and determined that our officers followed proper current screening procedures in conducting a modified pat-down on the child,” claimed the statist agency.

The latest incident last Monday involves the unreasonably aggressive screening of Dina Frank, a 7-year-old girl with cerebral palsy, at the hands of TSA thugs at JFK International Airport which caused her family to miss their flight to Florida.

This little child is unable to pass through airport metal detectors without setting off alarms because she walks with metal leg braces and crutches. The condition puts her at the mercy of the TSA thugs who insist without reason or exception that she must undergo their patented pat-down assault and battery on a baby procedure.
Dina also suffers a developmental disorder, making the pat down and frisking procedure especially frightening if not done with special care. She was born prematurely suffering from bleeding on the brain and has struggled for years to get around, even enduring a double hip replacement to assist in her recovery.
Only recently, she successfully underwent Botox and phenol injections which have helped her to gain some control of her legs, enough to take several unassisted steps.
Her family politely asked the TSA agents on duty to introduce themselves gently to the little girl in order make her feel more comfortable, but instead the thugs ignored the request and proceeded aggressively anyway with the child. The ordeal was especially traumatic and the family ended up missing their flight.
“They make our lives completely difficult,” said her dad, Dr. Joshua Frank, a Long Island pediatrician. “She’s not a threat to national security.” “They’re harassing people. This is totally misguided policy,” he added. “Yes, I understand that TSA is in charge of national security and there’s all these threats. [But] for her to be singled out, it’s crazy.”

Frank taped the encounter, which they thought had ended when a supervisor inspected the child’s crutches and let them pass. But then more agents followed up insisting upon doing a full assault and battery pat down inspection of the frightened disabled little girl. Ultimately, the family missed their flight.

“TSA has reviewed the incident and determined that our officers followed proper screening procedures in conducting a modified pat-down on the child,” the TSA agency said once again in its usual scripted statement defending their outrageous conduct upon a helpless innocent child.

If this kind of misguided abuse is happening regularly with innocent little children and toddlers at all of our nation’s airports, one can easily imagine what is routinely occurring unreported to typical American innocent adult travelers, especially older disabled and wheelchair bound people, at the hands of these insensitive and brutish TSA agents.  

Congress must act now to stop this abuse. If this can happen at airports it can eventually happen anywhere. It’s not reasonable. It’s outrageous. It’s contemptible.

Americans deserve better than this.

  1. "Congress must act now to stop this abuse."

    Please - you know the score as well as the others of us do...

    Congress isn't going to do a g*d forsaken thing.

    The courts aren't going to do a g*d forsaken thing.

    Nobody in power is going to do a g*d forsaken thing.

    The only ones who can - the people - are too dumbed down and too held down to do much of anything.

    Face it - they have us by the collective short hairs.

    Until the money runs out and people realize they can't even feed themselves - even on the government's dime - it's going to continue. Until then, bend over and think of Janet Napolitano.
