Thank you, George W. Bush, for creating yet another federal bureaucracy that’s worthless.
The TSA agent went over the same places at least three times. This is the longest most redundant search I have ever seen. Plus the boy didn’t even set off the scanner when he walked through. The poor kid simply forget his laptop in his book bag so the TSA traumatizes the kid and makes the family miss the flight. Outrageous.

A mother says Transportation Security Administration agents treated her family “like dogs” during a search at an airport in Texas, where her 13-year-old son was excessively searched, causing her family to miss their flight.
Jennifer Williamson posted a 2-minute video of her son being searched at the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport on Sunday, saying the process was like “hell” and claimed agents who searched the teen “deliberately” kept the family from making their flight.
“We were treated like dogs because I requested they attempt to screen him in other ways per TSA rules,” Williamson wrote on the post, which has been shared nearly 100,000 times. “He has [sensory processing disorder] and I didn’t want my child given a pat down like this. Let me make something else crystal clear. He set off NO alarms. He physically did not alarm at all during screening, he passed through the detector just fine.” More
