Posted April 23rd, 2012 by Sussex County Angel

Again, they go to far. When will people realize the TSA does not make us safe???

Sounds made up

Sorry, but this story reeks of bullshit:

The TSO loomed over my daughter, with an angry grimace on her face, and ordered her to stop crying. When my scared child could not do so, two TSOs called for backup saying “The suspect is not cooperating.” The suspect, of course, being a frightened child. They treated my daughter no better than if she had been a terrorist.

That little passage alone should set off red flags. The TSA is evil enough. People Don't need to make shit up.

except the Consumerist

contacted the TSA and verified that something happened. That quote is at the bottom of the article.

something, huh?

Well..."something" happened. That's obvious.

Ok, the TSA shouldn't be patting down 4-year-olds, but the story is so embellished that it's not a reliable account of what actually happened.
