Young Boy in Wheelchair Gets a Pat-Down From TSA (Video)

Young Boy in Wheelchair Gets a Pat-Down From TSA
In a wheelchair because he's wearing a cast on his leg.

A toddler in a wheelchair is stopped by the TSA at ORD (O'Hare Airport in Chicago). The boy is wearing a cast on his leg. Not only is he given a pat-down, TSA swabs the wheelchair and the cast for explosives.

A toddler in a wheelchair is stopped by the TSA at ORD (O'Hare Airport in Chicago) and forced to into a sequestered area. On his way to a family vacation in Disney, this 3 year old boy is in a body cast for a broken leg. Despite assurances from his father that "everything is ok", he is physically trembling with fear while he watches his two siblings, mother, father, grandfather and grandmother pass through along with everyone else...only to be singled out.

He simply does not understand what is happening and why.

Wild Thing's comment.........

One can see the dear little boy is afraid he is on the verge of crying. There is no reason for them to do this to this child.

This makes my blood boil. And we refuse to profile!

I lay a lot of this crap right at George W. Bush's feet. Yeah, he is a really nice guy. So was his dad, #41. But both were basically piss poor presidents. Dubya gave us a new monsterous, all consumming, overbearing, freedom squashing, costly bureaucracy, the Dept of Homeland Security. And it's bastard stepchild the TSA. All because Dubya couldn't bear to acknowledge that America is at war with islam. And "NO" George, islam is absolutely not a religion of peace. Your "compassion" ran amuk George and it is costing us dearly. I cringed with revulsion when I saw Bush 43 holding hands with the Saudi prince or king or whatever his title was. That arab was from the House of Saud. The same bunch that finance radical islamic madrasses around the world.

This TSA guy in the video was just doing what he was told. I kinda feel for him. He is just a soldier in the wrong damn army. He balks and he is fired and the kid just gets abused by another TSA agent. It is the system at fault. A sorry assed system not related to reality put in place to give us a false sense of security. Meanwhile muslim terrorists come across our border vaguely secured so we can let in people who will, "work jobs Americans won't do". Other potential muslim terrorists are welcomed in on student visas, tourist visas and also as legal immigrants.

We have the sorriest president in our history. But the previous three were no winners by any sane measure. And if obama loses, we are probably going to have another sorry assed non conservative that will make 41 and 43 look good. And TSA will march on.

Well said Tom. This is BS to the max. Doing this to a young child like only makes the Islamist laugh in our faces. They're whittling away at our freedoms and our government is obliging them. The name needs to be changed from the TSA to Gestapo.

Trust me I have felt the same way about the TSA. But, after speaking with military personnel who have served in Afghanistan may I offer up an opposing view? If we truly believe we are in a war against terrorists we can't fail to remember there are home grown terrorists. If patting down older folks or young children stops someone from using a child as a weapon then it is a small price to pay. Never forget - terrorists have, will and continue to hide behind the young and the elderly. I feel we have become complacent that 9/11 was a one time attack on our soil. As far as the TSA - my solution all along has been to put those trained to protect us in the place of civilian TSA - our own troops!

Yes Barb. Random checks of anyone may be OK. But only after EVERY MidEast looking person or person with an Arab name is thoroughly searched via profiling. We have a known enemy and that enemy is not being acknowledged by our govt.(or the MSM) That is why so many Americans are complacent.

Anyone with the brains God gave a brass door knob knows this isn't a child being used by terrorists. Look at the kid and parents. Muslim terrorists use their own kids as weapons.

Let me say another thing. I served over 20 years active duty in the Air Force. I had a security clearance with SAR access and was certified to work nuclear armed aircraft. I don't mind being patted down while going through airport security. I understand that but I don't understand this little kid getting patted down. God gave us brains and unfortunately the TSA and civil rights groups won't allow TSA employees to use their brains.
