The TSA Gave a Pat Down to a Six-Year-Old Girl
It feels like it's been at LEAST a few months since we were outraged at the TSA. But there's a new video online that's putting an end to THAT streak.
The video is from the New Orleans International Airport, and it shows a TSA agent giving a full pat down to a SIX-YEAR-OLD GIRL.
I mean . . . it's a female agent doing the pat down, and while she does everything she can to keep it professional, the way she's touching the girl would get her ARRESTED in any other context.
Plus, the little girl makes it clear at the beginning that she doesn't want to participate.
The girl's parents are Todd and Selena Drexel of Bowling Green, Kentucky.
Selena says, quote, "I did ask for alternatives, I asked for her to be rescanned. They just refused and said they were going to do what they were going to do."
Todd says that while his daughter took the pat down like a champ, she started crying afterward. Quote, "She really didn't understand what she had done wrong."
The TSA issued a statement saying they reviewed the footage and, quote, "the officer followed proper current screening procedures."
Here's the YouTube video. And while it's obviously crazy to pat down a six-year-old like this . . . don't think the terrorists would hesitate to plant a bomb on a child
