[VIDEO] Is a TSA Pat Down Of A 6 Year Old Girl Necessary?

In another bizarre example of the TSA totally patting down the WRONG person, here’s a video of a TSA employee groping patting down a six year old girl at a New Orleans Airport.  This video has caused quite an uproar on YouTube, and across the internet, and as usual their are lots of people against it, but also lots of people all for it.

It seems to some, myself included, that the TSA may want to train their employees to pick out people that appear high risk for carrying explosives or other weapons.  I think most people could agree that a family with 2 or 3 young kids are not likely to be the type of people to try to bring down an airplane.  Yet the TSA felt this family was a risk, as they searched the mother and then the 6 year old daughter.  And I mean this was a VERY thorough pat down of the 6 year old.  It appears from the narrowness of the video, the father of the 6 year old girl was covertly filming the whole incident.  Of course that is against TSA rules, so now that he’s posted his video on YouTube, he’s likely screwed.

The incident has caused quite a derisive back and forth on the Youtube comments for this video, here’s just a few of the gems from both sides of the “arguement:

For:

You’re such a fucking idiot. I watched the video 3 times and the TSA agent did not touch the child’s genitals at all. If you don’t think a child is capable of having explosives on it then you’re out of your fucking mind. What is stopping an adult from placing explosives on a child? Nothing. If you’re not going to search children then they shouldn’t search anyone. Because what would be the point after-all?

…..

Look, if the kid had a bomb strapped to them and the TSA didn’t check, you morons would be complaining that we should have better security in place. So don’t give me that crap.

Against:
they are being abused when the TSA pedos feel their ass when they clearly possess no threat. America is such a massive shit hole. Thanks god I wasn’t born there.

You’re are a brainwashed RETARD!!! And a SICK FUCK for thinking this is okay. If that TSA cow tried to touch one of my kids I’d rip her arms off and beat her to death with ’em!! Your one of those fools that likes the government illegally spying on you and poisoning your water! You probably think 9/11 was the work of Osama Bin Laden, stupid fools!! WAKE UP ALREADY!!!!

As you can see, things are getting a little nasty over this TSA patdown of a 6 year old girl.  What do you think, does it make sense for the TSA to patdown 6 year old children, who are travelling with their parents?  And yes, it must be said, these were white, American citizens.  Comment below.

This little girl, Anna Drexel, was strip-searched in a scan FIRST, and then forced to go through a very intimate pat-down under new “enhanced pat-down techniques.” We are “enhancing” rather than listening to the people’s outrage, and backing off on the

I know TSA is an import job right now, but a six year old doesn’t need hands on them for anything. Especially now a days pedophiles are everywhere. I would have left airport and rented a car. Kids need to be screened by a licensed therapist hired by
