I believe, if you go to the actual post on YouTube, itself (don't just play the video off ATS), you can read the caption.
In the caption to the video, it says that the boy's FATHER removed his son's shirt so that the TSA officer could examine it.
Apparently the boy's father objected to his son being subjected to the full body scan. This was also alluded to in the text which accompanied the video at the source.
And, from the angle of the video, I can't see where the boy's "testicles weregroped" as is claimed in the inflamatory title to this thread. The officer seems to be performing a standard "pat-down" on the child, just as would be done to any other passenger in-lieu of a fulll body scan.
And, as to the possibility of children being used as "weapons carriers"; Currently, in parts of Africa children are actually trained, and fight, as soldiers. Some are boys barely old enough to carry a gun. Often the gun is as tall as, or even taller, than the child carrying it.
Some children, too small or weak to wield a firearm, are instead armed with machetes or axes; which they use to hack at, and dismember, their victims.

As mentioned, this has become a Political Correctness situation OUT OF CONTROL! We can not stand idly by as this happens! It is time to screen who the terrorist is more than likely going to be. It is 99% a chance that it will be a MUSLIM EXTREMIST! No questions! Who has it been in the past? Uh dur, gee, I dunno? Who has it been boss?
Again, Muslim extremists! They are fairly easy to pick out of a lineup! Do it! Stop fondling little boys and old ladies!
