Sorry guys. I had to post this video again. Over at The Stir’s Facebook page, I bumped into some folks who think what happened to the 6 year old girl was necessary and ok. One person said:
the child didnt seem to even care. i think it was done professionally and unfortunately b/c of the ways of the world this is what it comes down to. If you as a parent dont like it then dont fly.
If you don’t like the TSA, don’t fly. If you don’t like police brutality, don’t leave your house. If you don’t like food and other sales taxes, don’t buy anything. If you don’t like GMO food, don’t eat. If you don’t like radioactive water, don’t drink. If you don’t like air pollution, don’t breathe. This is love it or leave it 2.0. If you don’t like it, you can just go off and die.
What is wrong with these people? What happened to their dignity, honor and empathy? This is security theater. This is not real security. And you’re willing to have 6 year old girls predator-prepped for that? You don’t deserve human dignity. But that little girl does.
Those of us who get it will never stop fighting for the basic human dignity of people like that little girl. And we’re fighting for yours, too, even if you choose to squander it on this kabuki theater.
UPDATE: A friend tells me the above video will be on NBC news tonight. I hope that’s right because it’s about time the TSA was under the media spotlight again.
