If you hit one of them for fondle/molesting/searching you or your family and I'm on your jury, I'll vote not-guilty.
*And I know I'm not the only one who would do that.
There was a DA on the radio that said most juries in his area would also not convict. It would be a crime of passion anyways.
But seriously though, don't fly.edit on 22-11-2010 by Exuberant1 because: (no reason given)

Simplest and most direct answer: you target the sort of people who have a track record of blowing things up.
For example, when I was guarding a bank, I didn't pay nearly as much attention to the guy in a 3 piece suit carrying a deposit bag as I did the guy in a hoodie and sunglasses, who kept his hands in his pockets and seemed to be trying to look everywhere at once.
As a matter of fact, whenever someone came in to any place I was working, bank or whatever, and immediately focused on my uniform, I paid a lot more attention to that individual. I went on the theory that if someone wanted to know where I was, it would be good for me to know where they were. You can learn a lot about someone's intentions by watching them. That doesn't mean you pounce on them, it means you pay closer attention to see if they really NEED to be pounced upon.
In all those years, that theory NEVER let me down. Not once.
Really you're finally done? I have yet to read on and see if this is true or not. As to your comment that we complain when the government fakes to protect us, you fail to acknowledge the real complaint: We complain because there is evidence that they consistently ignore vital security information gleaned through more normal and reasonable channels then when the s hits the fan they say "Look, sheep, we need more power, we need more invasive access to your rights and your privacy and dignity."

War zone??? There are no zones in war.
Major fail on your part.
I am done talking with people who don't live in reality. Enjoy your psychosis.
thanks for the backstory. It doesn't change the way I feel. It just goes to show that the child, who hasn't been fully conditioned as a sheeple yet, instinctively knows right from wrong. And it is just plain wrong to insist a child be docile about being patted down by a stranger. For those who may be comparing these pat downs to a visit to the doctor, the doctor is not some random stranger never to be seen again. I dont kniw how it goes for the rest of you, but at pediatric visits, as a parent I'm there to ensure the exams are respectful, disgnified and appropriate. I don't have to worry about being arrested, detained or tased if I voice any objections.

I know it has been stated before but it appears not enough people know the actual backstory to this.
The TSA did not 'strip' search this young man. The agent attempted to do a routine pat down of the boy. The boy would not cooperate, even the father attempted to calm the kid down and to help him stay still. When the father finally lost his patience, the father took the kid's shirt off and handed it to the agent. Once again, the TSA agent did not take the shirt off, nor did he ask for it to happen that way.
