Warning, Video is graphic.
The 19-year old was headed home to Chattanooga after treatment for a brain tumor at St. Jude Hospital June 30, 2015.
It's a trip they've made for 17 years.
This time, an unarmed Hannah, set off the metal detector at a security checkpoint
“They wanted to do further scanning, she was reluctant, she didn't understand what they were about to do," said her mother Shirley Cohen.
Cohen told us she tried to tell TSA agents her daughter is partially deaf, blind in one eye, paralyzed, and easily confused, but said she was kept at
a distance by police.
“She's trying to get away from them but in the next instant, one of them had her down on the ground and hit her head on the floor. There was blood
everywhere,” said Cohen.
It shows a disabled teenager after her face was bashed on the ground. Shortly after receiving operations on her brain tumour. It's not incredibly
graphic but if you have a soul, the sight of it makes you ████ ██ ████ ███ ██ the TSA and ████ in the
████ until they ████ for every █████ Capitol Hill.
Seriously though Americans...
Take that picture and put it on your bathroom mirror. Look at it everyday. It's a symbol of America. It's a symbol of what the country has become, a
third world police state, all except for the aristocratic monarchy, known as corporate executives, their brethren and the 1%, your oligarchical
You all sit around and argue about gun rights, like it's going to protect you. From what? Your rights are all gone. GONE. The Founding Fathers
never envisioned a country where "Freedom" means bailing out banks, the highest per capita healthcare costs in the world, killing hundreds of innocent
people in unlawful drone strikes, spying on citizens, legalized bribery, 1/3 of population with criminal record-higher for just men, and smashing a
disabled teens head against the floor while stranding her and parents in another city while their belongings are sent across country.
They just didn't. This is not freedom. None of it is. You want 2nd amendment to protect freedoms? Uh, sorry, it hasn't done #### for you so far. Maybe
stand up and realize that any partisan solutions don't fix problems. Plenty of countries treat their citizens with respect and they haven't launched
any recent rebellions. And for the opposite side (those in favour of gun control), getting rid of guns is also not the problem. (Insert any political
Now, insert guns with ________ -ANY ISSUE WHATSOEVER. I only mention that specific issue because I've read way too often its meant to "protect" the
people supposedly. It's not. But, the blame can be laid squarely on any divisive politics. Look to other countries. Denmark, Sweden, Canada, Holland,
Iceland, etc. You will never solve anything with the two party system you currently have. Partisan politics does not work. Politics in this country
divides and conquers and its been getting worse and worse the last 100 years.
If it were directly affecting me, Id be rallying people to march Washington and publicly remove every single politician. Organize a movement that sets
out from the start, requirements
you expect from government, that cannot be taken over and subverted like every single movement in the last
1. Get money out of politics-lobbying/elections
2. No bailouts, ever. (Isn't that communism? 1960s called, "Irony")
3. Health care costs, free-universal if this high, lower if private.
4. No killing with "collateral damage" in peoples name, remotely, in undeclared war.
5. No spying on its own citizens
6. Remove all prohibitionist laws and divert drug problems to healthcare
7. Ban all NGOs or "citizen rights groups" funded by large corporate interests.
8. A corporation is not a person, unless it gets a brain & heart. Sorry.
9. Evaporate the TSA
Lastly: A timeline. Draw out a timeline: 3 months to come up with bills, 3 months to amend, 3 months put through, 3 months to initiate. 1 year and
start fixing everything, and from now the people should be united. And a leaders job should depend on that. Causing division and divisiveness in the
population should be considered a horrible failure of all public office and media. Which should be met with instant job loss should any one person
show themselves responsible for it.
That's "if" it affected me directly. It doesn't. But its painful seeing any country being shredded by those leading it. Worse when the people are so
confused they'd sooner vote to make it worse than actually expect change. They blame their brothers and sisters before blaming the people who benefit,
every time. It's ugly. In a perfect world, genocide would be stopped, resources wouldn't be plundered, unjust laws would be overturned, the UN would
intervene out of duty not politics. People would solve issues by talking honestly, without political bias controlling the topic. In some places many
of these ideals are at least acknowledged, if not pursued. Be that country.
