Last month it was a three-year-old disabled wheel chair bound terror suspect on his way to Disney World with his Mommy, Daddy, and young siblings, assaulted and battered by TSA airport goons. The poor child was manhandled, searched, frisked, patted down, swabbed, and groped like a prison inmate on his way to a parole hearing.
Needless to say, that kid was terrified beyond the pale as heartless TSA uniformed thugs laid their filthy statist hands on him in the guise of “just doing their jobs.” All the while his parents had to stand back helplessly, unable to console their frightened son; unable to hug him or even hold his hand as the thugs had their way with him.
It was purely a law school text book variety assault and battery of an innocent child wholly without reasonable suspicion or probable cause. In the United States of America today everyone, even little babies, are suspected potential terrorists. We’re all a bunch of cowering sheep that might have a bomb up our ass as far as the TSA are concerned.
Now the latest child victim is little four-year-old Isabella Brademeyer, of Missoula, Montana, on her way home with family after attending her uncle’s wedding, mercilessly set upon, targeted, mugged, manhandled and terrorized this week by a gang of uniformed gun toting TSA goons in Kansas at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport while her frightened and cowering typical American family looked on.
The facts are that this tiny toddler had already cleared a security checkpoint along with mom and dad, and was breezily and innocently on her way to the airplane, when she spotted her grandma on other side of the “twilight zone.”
Being the child she is, the youngster ran excitedly over the line to give her grandma a hug, apparently setting off an alarm which triggered the TSA goons on duty into a state of statist re-screening mode apoplexy.
TSA officers began yelling at the little girl, demanding that she sit down and undergo a full body pat-down. “It was implied, several times, that my mother, in their brief two-second embrace, had passed a handgun to my daughter,” recalls the toddler’s mother. Her baby was terrified.
Spread your arms and legs, little girl.
“They told her she had to come to them, alone, and spread her arms and legs,” remembers mom. “No, I don’t want to,” screamed the traumatized baby. “That is when a TSO told me they would shut down the entire airport; cancel all flights, if my daughter was not restrained,” says mom. “It was then they declared my daughter a ‘high-security threat.’”
Mom tried to pick up and comfort her but the TSA ordered her to stop. They were eventually escorted to a private room where, according to mom, the child was treated like a terrorist. “I will never forget the look of pure terror on her face,” she continued. “A TSO began repeating that in the past she had ‘seen a gun in a teddy bear.’ The TSO seemed utterly convinced my child was concealing a weapon, as if there was no question about it.”
When the baby started crying again the officers became enraged. They ordered her to stop weeping and when she refused, called for backup, saying: “The suspect is not cooperating.” Eventually, a TSA manager showed up and stopped the madness, clearing the family through security and on to their flight.
Not surprisingly the TSA remains steadfast that they did absolutely nothing wrong.
“TSA has recently implemented modified screening procedures of children 12 and under that will further reduce the need for a physical pat-down for children,” says a TSA spokesperson. “These new screening procedures include permitting multiple passes through the metal detector and advanced imaging technology to clear any alarms as well as the greater use of explosives trace detection. These changes in protocol will ultimately reduce – though not eliminate – pat downs of children.”
“In this case, however, the child had completed screening but had contact with another member of her family who had not completed the screening process,” he concluded.
So instead of calmly assessing and dealing with the situation with a bit of courtesy and common sense, the TSA goons yelled without mercy at a frightened little child, who’s only “crime” was to hug her grandma, chased her down and forced her to do their will as though this was a high security threat to the United States of America – as though she were a hardened criminal.
“Something is clearly very wrong if TSA’s protocol forced them to harass a four-year-old girl until she cried,” outraged Montana congressman, Denny Rehberg told reporters. “I intend to sit down with the TSA immediately and demand some answers.”
“TSA has reviewed the incident and determined that our officers followed proper current screening procedures in conducting a modified pat-down on the child,” insists a TSA apologist at the TSA Office of Public Affairs. “TSA officers did not suspect or suggest the child was carrying a firearm,” he said.
Well, what was all the fuss about then?
If granny didn’t give baby a gun or a bomb to be smuggled on to the airplane by this typical American family at a typical American airport, and that was as obvious as day to those TSA monsters, why in the name of reason did they feel the need to terrorize this little baby and her family?
The congressman will get answers all right, but they won’t be satisfactory answers and nothing will be done about this never-ending Gestapoesque madness until every congressman and senator in the United States rises up in mutual disgust to put a stake through the heart of the TSA once and for all.
There must be no more assaults and muggings of Americans at our airports without reasonable suspicion and probable cause.
