TSA claimed it was illegal to film them when they are detaining and trying to pat down your child? Not in any law that I’ve ever seen.
Via The Daily Mail:
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.
As Fox News Radio reports, the Forcks were attempting to fly to Orlando to enjoy a family vacation at Disney World and were flying out of Lambert-St Louis International Airport.
Though they got through the TSA security checkpoint without incident, a TSA agent pulled the family aside to screen Lucy’s wheelchair further for a pat down and swabbing her mobility device.
Mrs Forck pulled out her smart phone and began recording the whole event, against the TSA agent’s request.
‘It’s illegal to do that,’ the female agent is heard saying.
Mrs Forck responds: ‘You can’t touch my daughter unless I can record it,’ and later adds: ‘The problem is, I don’t allow anyone to touch my little daughter.’
Throughout the argument between the mother and the TSA agent, Lucy can be heard crying, apparently confused at what exactly was going on.
Her stuffed animal, ‘Lamby,’ had been scanned via X-ray and had not been returned to her.
