And none of it changes the fact that you`re trolling kunt that gets off on running her mouth about America and anything else that doesn`t fit into her rosy colored little world.

Your beloved little country let a convicted murderer free, plain and simple. Did the 270 people that died on that flight get the same luxury? Your pathetic tripe amuses me as well as so many others on here. And I see you didn`t touch on Maldives which probably means like your government you look the other way while taking money from rapists and outright thugs.

For the record I`ve never claimed on here at anytime that the U.S. was perfect. However on the same token I don`t run around posting crap in nearly every post insulting everyone who doesn`t see things my way. I save that for trolls.

You can criticize the US until you`re blue in the face...oh wait, you already do. It doesn`t change the fact that your country was right there fighting. Oh, and killing and destroying things as you like to so constantly bring up.

Letting convicted terrorists out of prison because they are dying.Training a police force that returns to their country only to rape and torture the populace while you turn a blind eye for the money they pay for the training. So please by all means bloat these threads with your anti-American crap.

@casidhe-Your judgement of how kids are treated for playing the way kids play and being punished for it while valid is flawed in your case as you are attempting to insult the very institutions(government, school systems, etc) that want guns gone.

And I agree with @McGovern, please save your antiwar rhetoric for the government of your own country who I believe were very much active in the wars you refer to as well.

Disgusting but then this is the same country that suspended a child a few weeks ago for wanting to invited her friend to shoot bubbles at each other with their hello kitty BUBBLE gun .You see in the good ole USA it`s o.k to own assault rifles .Bullets are good but bubbles are BAD !

And what about the child who was suspended recently after throwing an imaginary bomb into an box full of imaginary bad guys that he was pretending were out to destroy the world because he wanted to save the world ! In my humble opinion this is better imaginary game than the one America plays where they pretend to save the
world by blowing up innocent civilians and call it a war on terror !!!!

What you`re forgetting is that she comes from Scotland. You know, the country that takes a kinder and gentler approach to terrorists.Where else could one be tried and found guilty of a plane bombing but be released due to being sick? I`m certain there`s alot of those victim`s families that wished their loved ones had gotten the same consideration.

Amen, sister. If that Pistorius guy taught us anything, it`s that we`re all at the mercy of these cripple terrorists. And it`s not like he`s even an isolated example. Did people not *see* what that Magneto character could do? And look at McGovern: he wears still wears diapers and by simple deft of wilful ignorance he`s a danger to the liberty of the entire Western world. These feeble bodied/minded monsters must be stopped, I tell you!

What is lacking is simple trust that people are generally good. Few rotten apples have reduced us to shivering shells of human beings afraid of everything. I bet that all those pattings done by TSA has done anything to prevent "terrorism" but caused huge delays, wrongfull detentions and stripping away civil liberties.

If i want to blow up a plane, i will do it with or without TSA being there. Not that i want to but that patting is not for security. It`s an over-reaction to fear.

leave the TSA alone. I`m sick of all these baby terrorists, cutting people up with nail scissors, tipping poisonous milk on your head and blowing up planes with bombs. The TSA are only doing their job. Not only should that whiney little suicide bomber be radioactivly scanned till her cute blond locks fall out, I think a cavity search is in order. Plus, rip open lamies guts and check inside him, cause thats probably where that miniture osama bin laden follower hides the anthrax.

This lady and anybody who gets upset at the TSA for having to do this obviously have no clue what TSA is trying to prevent or how much a possible terrorist would care about that 3y/o. If she was more educated and "OMG THIS IS ABSURD!" the 20 min would probably have been 2.

ooooohhhhhh.... here i thought all this homeland security TSA bullsh*t was because of the fear of hijacking and running it into buildings. the patriot act...? any of this ringing a bell? but turns out they are justified in all of this so they can can catch DRUG SMUGGLERS. whew. i feel so much safer. i mean, after all, if someone is going to smuggle drugs, its a certainty that they will also bring down the plane too, right? F*ck off man. Don`t justify this kinda sh*t because some white trash stuffed a little bit of weed in a kid`s stroller. that is not justification. if you told me they found some child with explosives... i MIGHT listen. `til then. stfu.

A good point @LordJim, but if you only do racial profiling that`s a half-a$$ed approach. Like the Israelis, you need to do complete profiling, something which would not go over very well in the western world, because god forbid joe-schmoe ever feels like he`s even possibly a terrorist. I can say with a high degree of certainty though that people employed by the TSA (or CATSA in Canada) require only high school education and from what I saw are generally not the sharpest tools in the shed. So yes, you would need much better training and procedures to do effective profiling.

Gerry,

Racial profiling just tells the bad guys who we won`t be searching. As for Israel, it`s been a while since I flew El-Al but their security`s strength seems to me (just an opinion) mainly due to having high-quality personnel who very pleasantly ask questions and are very well trained to interpret the response and decide whether you warrant further interest.

Not the TSA`s style, really. If you want to take one thing from Israeli success it`s that you should employ high-quality, highly trained, highly motivated people and be prepared to pay for that.

Searching only swarthy people is not a substitute.

BTW, did you read the article.

I`ve seen a video of where a mother was hiding pot in her childs stroller as she was trying to cross the border into British Columbia.. So it`s not absurd for them to randomly check children. Cartels are now targeting the elderly and other individuals such as"normal" looking families that you wouldn`t normally suspect to carry drugs etc.. I feel terrible for the little girl, but sadly this is the world we live in today.. As long as the parent is present, the should be allowed to do their job without an issue, and if they refuse then they should not be allowed to travel on the plane.

LordJim - 93% terrorists are male, between 21 & 28 years of age, and of middle eastern decent. But instread we will search old black grannies and little asian 2 year olds so we don`t hurt anyone`s delicate feelings. Security experts have already shown the TSA`s methods to be completely ineffective. It`s just a show to make the sheeple feel like the gov`ment is doing something.

Other countries use Racial Profiling to great effect. YES, some police in U.S. misused the tool, but that does not make the tool a bad thing. It just means they were bad people.

Mom should have completely flipped this around. Told her daughter that the world was afraid of her and they wanted to make sure her wheelchair wasn`t going to blow up because they think she`s a bad person.

Easy to pick on a kid because they don`t know how to fight back.

"Racial profiling does not have a proven track record at all."
This is just false. Israel uses general and specific profiling of everybody (including Arabs) and has had phenomenal success in keeping their planes and airports safe.

As @drawman pointed out, this is SOP. However, in regard to the stuffed bear, what we would do when I worked airport security was to put the animal through the x-ray first, then give it back to her (no sense in riling up a child that just wants her security blanket back). As for the wheelchair, it has to be swabbed and a limited pat down done, because you can`t use a metal detector on someone in a metal wheelchair. I did that job for 5 years or so, and I never had incident with a wheelchair person, everyone understood that rules are rules.

You are most correct! If we followed the Israeli model, it would make things soooo much easier and people like this would have to find something else to bitch about.

On our way to Las Vegas last week, I set off the metal detector three times so they sent me over for a pat-down. The TSA agent (female) & I kinda figured it was the under-wire from my bra, but they have to be sure. The pat-down was just a bit more invasive than the usual (I grew up in South-Central LA & I am not white, so getting frisked by the `man` is nothing new). I just kept cool & treated the agents politely. In return they were also very, very nice--even a bit apologetic, afterwards (sounds like a few dates I had in the 80`s). I`ve had other encounters with the TSA in this vein, & have come to the conclusion that the situation only gets nasty when the passenger loses their sh*t (NOT like Slut etta`s Chihuahua) & brings the histrionics. Hell, I let my goof-ball high school boyfriend feel me up, why should I get my panties in a twist if a cute Latina wearing gloves wants to check out my goods OVER the clothes? LOL. As per Carmium, the mom could`ve made this sit

I am SOOO sick of people making a bigger deal out this then it needs to be. This parent made it much worse for the child at the beginning who needed an adult to help her understand what was happening. Not someone to inflame it. Thankfully she relaxed and so did the child.

It sucks but for what it`s worth people in this world are A$$holes and will use their children to smuggle things.

And that includes white people who look like nice suburban families going to Disney World. I write that because when I hear someone say, "do we look like someone who would... whatever." What I hear is we are white Americans, looks at another race.

Is TSA largely a costly farce? Sure. But to go thru screening and start humphing about how you don`t let anyone touch your child is just looking to make a scene. If Mommy dearest hadn`t made a big fuss over what she knew damn well could happen when the family went flying, the kid would have likely gone thru it without any problem.

veering slightly from topic, there was something on dogshaming.com the other day about a teensy chihuahua-looking dog who shat all over a TSA agent. he said he had `taken the biggest poo of (his) life` because he was a nervous flier and that the TSA agent had to go change clothes....

and that`s why i prefer the company of dogs. they`re so much more entertaining than most humans....

I don`t know if the search was abusive or something, but no it is not too far. Searching people because of their appearances IS going too far. Taking random people for a search is perfectly ok since it is arbitrary. People who wants to hide something from the TSA will try to do it with the people who doesn`t look suspect. And it is easy to hide something in a wheelchair. So if you want to be safe, accept it. If you want total freedom, search no one and accept the consequences.

This, and searching grannies, is necessary because in the United States we are too stupid to use a tool called "Racial Profiling". It`s a perfectly usefull tool with a proven track record of accuracy used world-wide. But no, not in the U.S. We might hurt someones tender little feelings. Or some Libretard might be offended on behalf of some poor, downtrodden person they`ve never met. Then the next thing you know Rachael Madcow is on MSNBC demanding action be taken.... I bet she doesn`t get a pat-down.

While I can`t say I agree with their methods, I do understand their reasoning. Think like a terrorist for a moment. Who would suspect an 80-year-old granny, or a 3-year-old in a wheelchair? Replace the seat cushion in the wheelchair with a shaped explosive charge. Strap an explosive charge under granny`s loose, shapeless blouse. Again, I`m not saying that I agree with them, but this is their reasoning, as well as preventing anyone from calling "racial profiling" because they were singled out, but granny wasn`t checked.

I have worked airport security and I can tell you searching wheelchairs, children`s pushchairs etc is completely standard procedure. I can understand how you all think this is over the top but you have to understand that genuine terrorists could be disguised as anyone. If wheelchairs were suddenly exempt, where do you think they would start hiding explosives or drugs?
They could have offered a private room to prevent embarassment but it would still have to be done.

So instead they pat down babies and 80 year olds and perhaps every 87th person in line. Stupid.

They`ve been taking it too far for years. Do a search on YouTube and Google. I realize they are there to prevent a disaster, but they are given waaay too much leeway and many of them seem to just go into a power trip. They have humiliated, terrorized, and sometimes completely turned upside-down way more lives than they have saved.
