This is child abuse, plain and simple. People are training their children to submit to being coerced and touched inappropriately.
This three-year-old boy, Rocco Dubiel, in a cast, in a wheelchair, was singled out by the brilliant minds of the TSA to be manhandled, pawed, and swabbed, while his parents look on. The little boy is crying and asks his father to give him a hug. The TSA, as they always do, say, “Don’t touch your child.”
Only the boy’s sister, a little girl herself, has the compassion to go over and stroke his head. Her parents immediately tell her not to touch her brother.
This isn’t an anomaly. My Master List of TSA Crimes and Abuses is full of similar accounts.
I’m sorry, I don’t want to put any more pressure on parents than they already have. But if you allow this to be done to your child, what are you saying? And if you continue to fly, knowing this could happen, what are you saying?
Meanwhile, yet another TSA agent has been indicted on federal child pornography charges.
