TSA Reportedly Detains Wheelchair-Bound 3-Year-Old Girl, Orders Parents Not to Videotape Pat-Down

 TSA Reportedly Detains Wheelchair Bound 3 Year Old, Orders Parents Not to Videotape Pat Down

 The Transportation Security Administration is once again under fire, this time for allegedly detaining a wheelchair-bound 3-year-old girl, taking away her stuffed doll and ordering the girl’s parents not to videotape TSA agents patting her down.

The girl’s father, Nathan Forck, told Fox News Radio’s Todd Starnes that the TSA treated his daughter like a “criminal.”

“And by extension, they were treating us as criminals,” he added.
The incident reportedly occurred at Lambert-St. Louis Airport on Feb. 9. Forck, his wife and their three kids were on their way to Disney World for a family vacation when the trip took an ugly turn. TSA agents reportedly pulled Lucy aside for additional security screening, despite the fact that she was 3-years-old and bound to a wheel chair due to Spina bifida.

“They specifically told me that they were singling her out for this special treatment because she’s in a wheelchair,” Forck told Fox News. “They are specifically singling out disabled people for this special scrutiny. It’s rather offensive to me as a father of a disabled child.”

A TSA agent told the family that they needed to pat down Lucy and swab her wheelchair. The family had already made it through a security checkpoint by this time. Forck’s wife, Annie, pulled out her camera and began filming the incident, which agents told her was “illegal.”

“You can’t touch my daughter unless I record it,” she can be heard telling an agent in the video. Forck then asked an agent to “cite the law” that says they can’t videotape them.

  1. Obama's Brown Shirts in action "saving the nation" from a three year old in a wheelchair. Folks its all about intimidating the American citizens. PERIOD!

  2. When are the other travelers going to rise up against these traitorous bastards at TSA ? They should have mobbed the TSA agents and supported their fellow citizens.

    When are we going to resist ? will be the 3%.

  3. When it starts, I want these sick shits. All of them. If you manage to get ahold of the personnel files, keep them for Nuremburg-2.

    1. Such a huge outcry originally which slowly became almost full acceptance.

  4. I dunno, lots of folks just won't fly no matter what. No "news" coverage of that though...
