I saw this on Facebook and became angered! If this was my child, I would be so upset. But some people say the TSA agent did nothing wrong. I don’t like this type of ‘pat down’ on kids.
Jennifer Williamson posted this video on Facebook. Jennifer said she told TSA agents that her son has a sensory processing disorder and asked agents to “screen him in other ways per TSA rules.” This is what happened at DFW International Airport.
We have been through hell this morning. They detained Aaron for well over an hour at DFW. (And deliberately kept us from our flight… we are now on an alternate) We were treated like dogs because I requested they attempt to screen him in other ways per TSA rules. He has SPD and I didn't want my child given a pat down like this. Let me make something else crystal clear. He set off NO alarms. He physically did not alarm at all during screening, he passed through the detector just fine. He is still several hours later saying "I don't know what I did. What did I do?" I am livid. Please, share… make this viral like the other children's videos with TSA… I wish I had taped the entire interchange because it was horrifying. We had two DFW police officers that were called and flanking him on each side. Somehow these power tripping TSA agents who are traumatizing children and doing whatever they feel like without any cause, need to be reined in.
