T.S.A. agent accosts 3 year old child at security checkpoint

This is the end result of political correctness. If anyone else did this to a child they would be doing hard time. Too bad she didn't wear a berka, she would have avoided being traumatized. The TSA employee is only following orders. Where have I heard that before? Perhaps the Bill of Rights ceases to exist at the airport. The whole world is laughing at us, especially the Jihadists.

True, true. Ask CP and MPdQ about their recent experience flying in from Europe. Every time I've flown back from Europe I notice the contrast in security procedures there vs. in the US. Quite a difference. Same thing in customs.

And for some reason, we don't see really any difference between the number of terrorist interests in EU vs. US. Why is that? Jihadists surely have the UK, as an example, as a major target.

So basically, the absence of similar security procedures in the EU don't seem to be leading to an increase in security incidents. Is anyone asking why that might be?

We went through the big customs procedure in Dublin. I handed my passport to the agent who asked me where I was born. When I said "Rochester, NY" he replied, "Ah, Rochester! Home of Gennessee beer!" I said something about "Jenny beer" and he waved me through.
Contrast that to Atlanta, where although we didn't get patted or anything, the TSA agents are literally screaming at us to "Hurry up! Single file! Luggage on the belt!" It was heartbreaking to watch elderly tourists who had just endured an eight hour flight struggle with suitcases and keep marching. It reminded me me of all those Nazi films on the History channel.

The thing is, along with this being immoral and illegal, this mom now has a 3 year old that has been traumatized at the hands of the government. May the Lord give Mom the words and comfort this child will need to not fixate on what just happened to her.

It makes me so angry.

Why does this not apply?:

Amendment 4 - Search and Seizure. Ratified 12/15/1791.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Is a Class action lawsuit against the Feds in the making?
