TSA Forces Disabled 4yo to Remove Braces and Walk

Your government dollars at work, via Boing Boing: TSA forces travelling policeman to remove his disabled four-year-old son’s leg-braces.

Philadelphia TSA screeners forced the developmentally delayed, four-year-old son of a Camden, PA police officer to remove his leg-braces and wobble through a checkpoint, despite the fact that their procedure calls for such a case to be handled through a swabbing in a private room. When the police officer complained, the supervising TSA screener turned around and walked away. Then a Philadelphia police officer asked what was wrong and “suggested he calm down and enjoy his vacation.”

Who thought it was a good idea to make these people civil servants? Oh yeah. Democrats.
