    Video of screening of toddler in a wheelchair at airport fuels criticism

    A 2010 video of an airport screener patting down a 3-year-old boy in a wheelchair has become the latest Rorschach test of the public's attitude towards the TSA, pitting agency defenders against those who say the video shows the child being treated like a terrorist.

    Ridiculous. In their efforts not to "profile," they end up harassing the heck out of people that are clearly no threat. Makes me think of Walmart greeters harassing me for my receipt as the thugs go by with bulging pockets undisturbed.

    If you needed any proof that the U.S. Government can screw up anything, you have only to look at the TSA. The Red Team gets over on these folks about 75% of the time and they are shaking down a 3 year old.

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!

    I've never felt safer flying until I got to badge through TSA and fly armed. Do it all the time now.

    That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.
