  • I watched it and didn't find it disturbing at all. The bottom line is there are some people who will use their children for wrong doing. What if they didn't scan/pat down children and someone on your flight put explosives on their son's/daughter's person? I would never want to take the chance. These parents making a fuss need to chill out. They're either sue happy or wanting the spotlight for some other stupid reason.

    The TSA agent seemed to do a good job talking to her in a nice voice the little girl didn't seem to be upset as it was happening according to that report the parents said afterward she was upset........ Honestly if you are going to take your kids on a plane I think you should explain to them that it could happen beforehand so they don't freak out if it does.

  • They could have explained it better to her but in today's world, I wouldn't put it past people to put weapons or drugs on their kids because who would believe a little kid is carrying something illegal? You can't trust anyone anymore. People use their kids everyday to commit crimes.

  • I don't care what other people would do with their children. It would be over my cold dead body that they stuck their hands in my child's pants and I don't care if it was only the waist band.

  • This is why I quit flying. I don't like strange people touching me. I would definitely not want anyone touching my kids.

  • I want to know how many terrorists they have caught by groping and drug testing six-year-olds.

    Beyond being a disgraceful waste of taxpayer money, this is absolutely morally shameful.

  • That's crazy. I don't care how they talked to her. That child is stick thin. It's obvious she doesn't have any bombs or weapons on her.
