´I don´t want to go to Disney
World anymore´: Parents´ fury
as TSA agents detain their crying
wheelchair-bound daughter, three,
and confiscate her stuffed animal

Daily Mail [UK], by Beth Stebner

The parents of a toddler with spinal bifida are outraged after TSA officials forced their daughter to undergo a series of additional security measures ahead of their flight to Disney World. Nathan and Annie Forck were flying out of their home state of Missouri on a February 8 flight bound for Orlando, Florida with their wheelchair-bound daughter Lucy and their two other children. Mrs Forck took a six-minute video detailing their toddler’s cries as she said through tears that she didn’t want to go to Disney World anymore, and is claiming the TSA discriminates against people who use mobility devices.

Words fail to express the outrage at this utterly useless and creepy agency, the TSA. Let us not forget that the TSA, and also curly-que mandatory fluorescent lights with the banning of 60W(+) light bulbs, is an outgrowth of so-called "compassionate conservative" G. W. Bush. As much as I liked G. W., his presidency really turned out to be an overall dud.

Hey people, feel safer with TSA and Homeland security protecting you? Billions of dollars down the hole, rights being trampled left and right and yet these two agencies have not caught one single terrorist to date! Another example of your government coming to help you!

The TSA agent is a dang liar. She told the mother it was illegal to film the assault (yet sure wasn´t just a ´patdown´). Just another unionized government liar paid for by us.

i have a friend whose grandson is a quad and lives his life in a wheelchair. The TSA
made him leave his wheelchair, checked him out physically, went over the chair and any and all containers on the chair, and detained him and his family quite a while.

There are more of these outlandish searches
than we know about. Having peopis who are so challenge move about in spaces unfamiliar
is crewl. His grandfather is a doctor and his grandmother was a PTA.

How much do you want to bet these TSA agents never change their gloves the whole day through after touching hundreds of people.

My adult son has Autism. High functioning, but Autism nonetheless. He and I flew to a wedding a couple of years ago and I lived in absolute dread of him getting jacked up by some gung-ho TSA agent hell-bent on jacking someone up just for GPs. Fortunately it didn´t happen but after reading this story and others like it I´m scared to death to ever subject him to this kind of treatment. He´d probably end up in jail and I´d be in an adjoining cell.

When the citizens get tired of these abuses, there will be hell to pay.
What will be government´s response? Not reinstate the constitution. Not punish the guilty. Not even commit suicide in utter shame. No, they will try to ban more guns.

There are services that escort you through security and take care of your busy work at the airport. They can be expensive in some airports (like Atlanta -- ridiculous), but they are worth it a lot of the time. Especially if you´re traveling with a special needs passenger.

The headline is deceiving and unfair to Disney World which had nothing to do with what happened. Makes it sound like DW abused the boy so he didn´t want to go back. Aside from that, the TSA treatment was outrageous.

On a related note, the TSA will remove all of those ´´bare-naked scanners´´ by June. Something about how they could never come up a solution to the TSA agents constantly viewing the traveler´s ´wares´.

Wait! FTA: "Mr Forck, an attorney, told Fox News that he knew it was legal to record the event and said that if the same instance had occurred outside the setting of an airport, it would be illegal."

How the heck is it illegal to videotape someone molesting your daughter OUTSIDE of an airport?? That makes no sense. If someone (even a police officer) is touching my child against my will (whether in or out of an airport), I will videotape them and I will fight any stupid laws that would counter my right to do so!!!

At one time I was a frequent flier but I stopped flying two years ago after the way they treated my wife,who needs a cane for stability, by making her stand with her legs spread for a complete pat down. Why? She was wearing a small gold cross she forgot to remove prior to going through the intrusive xray machine. They saw to it she would be sorry, vindictive low lifes!

#10, whenever my mom files, we call ahead and arrange a wheelchair (they broke her scooter, now we use theirs). An airport agent brings the wheelchair and gets her all the way to the gate. She goes through the employee security line, and has never been hassled.

The only bad time was in Jacksonville, FL airport. The guy brought the wheelchair and left us on her own, we had two carry-on bags, and two large purses. He said it wasn´t his job to push her through the airport. Mom couldn´t hold all of it in her lap, so she held some (and got bruised for the effort), and I had something on my shoulder, and something on the handles. He missed his $5 or $10 tip.

We have never been charged by any airport, it´s just the tip.

A new poll has some worrying news for President Barack Obama--most Americans are fed up with his leadership. Many are also deeply worried about the direction in which the country is heading. The CBS News/New York Times survey revealed on Wednesday that 59 percent of people polled were disappointed in Obama, and 37 percent said they are very disappointed. While 40 percent of Americans claimed to be satisfied with the president, only 10 percent are ´very satisfied´ with Obama´s performance so far. The poll also shows that the president´s overall approval rating has dropped since January. While 46 percent of

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid shocked Washington by withdrawing support for President Barack Obama´s minimum wage proposal on Tuesday, showing that Democrats are getting cold feet following a devastating report that predicted massive job losses if the wage floor were to rise.

For the past three years, when seeking enlightenment about the Syrian crisis, I have often talked to Alastair Crooke, a former MI6 officer. Mr Crooke, who left government service a decade ago after a long career, now runs a think tank called Conflicts Forum, which maintains contact with organisations such as Hizbollah and governments such as Iran, when official contact has been broken off. I have learnt to respect and trust Mr Crooke, who has the invaluable habit of being right.

A decision to send Russian tanks into Ukraine would have echoes of the catastrophic invasion of Czechoslovakia by Adolf Hitler 76 years ago, according to a leading international security expert. Dr Jonathan Eyal, International Director of the security think-tank Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) said a such Russian move would be President Vladimir Putin’s “Sudetenland option”.

Russia today claimed that the CIA could be behind the disappearance of toppled Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych. The official newspaper of Vladimir Putin´s government alleged that American intelligence may have secretly flown the disgraced tyrant--now accused of mass murder--to a new life after giving him personal guarantees if he left the political stage. The extraordinary claim in Rossiyskaya Gazeta will inevitably be seen as a smokescreen for similar suspicions that Russia is now shielding former ally Yanukovych, possibly at the headquarters of the Black Sea fleet in Crimea. But today´s theory from Moscow´s official newspaper that the CIA may be

Don´t be fooled.

Brewer has not said whether she will sign or veto the measure. However, a number of media outlets have reported people close to her expect her to veto it.
