Young Boy strip searched by TSA

Notes on video:

"Lets get the facts straight first. Before the video started the boy went through a metal detector and didn't set it off but was selected for a pat down. The boy was shy so the TSA couldn't complete the full pat on the young boy. The father tried several times to just hold the boys arms out for the TSA agent but i guess it didn't end up being enough for the guy. I was about 30 ft away so i couldn't hear their conversation if there was any. The enraged father pulled his son shirt off and gave it to the TSA agent to search, thats when this video begins."

  • Wow... Honestly all I can say about this is if it were my child I would be suing TSA. He's a child and may or may not understand. I have a 3 year old son, and trust me I would almost consider that child molestation. Sorry but thats just my opinion.

  • You seriously need something better to do than keep posting TSA crap here. Why don't you go clean your house or something? Or take a pill and lie down.
