Severely mentally disabled man with the mental capacity of a 2-year-old harassed by TSA
By End the Lie
We are witnessing the total collapse of common sense and morality within the already unnecessary and invasive TSA institution. As if molesting six year old girls or looking in the diapers of infants wasn’t enough, they are now singling out clearly disabled people for their “enhanced pat-downs.”
Are these individuals actually idiotic enough to see this individual as a threat or possible security issue? Or are they so sick that they actually enjoy harassing and humiliating what amounts to a two year old child?
Either of these options is far from acceptable for a group that we pay for and relegate our safety to. Who knows how many possible real security threats could have passed through that security checkpoint while the operators were busy haranguing a severely disabled individual? Who knows how many real threats are ignored while young children and attractive women are forced into the naked body scanners?
What I found to be one of the most ludicrous and intellectually insulting parts of the report is that the TSA goons actually decided that a baseball was less of a security risk than a child’s plastic hammer.
If you have ever been hit by a fastball during a baseball game, you can confirm that a baseball thrown with significant velocity hurts a lot more than a hollow plastic hammer. If this clearly disabled individual was actually a terrorist those TSA agents couldn’t have been more idiotic.
Oh but it is all okay, since it was just an isolate incident and nothing like this has ever happened before, right? If you throw out all of the instances of similar debacles with physically disabled individuals and children then sure, it is an “isolated case of bad judgment.”
However, if you actually assess what these sick sadists have done in the recent past without dismissing every single incident as an isolated case of bad judgment, you might disagree.
The following article I compiled some time ago has so many examples of these “isolated cases” that any sane person would question the protocols and training these individuals receive courtesy of our tax dollars.
