Need a Diaper Change....Call TSA 24/7

DESTIN, Fla. Alice Wolke - A Florida woman filed a federal complaint after her terminally ill wheelchair-bound mother was asked to remove her adult diaper during an extensive pat-down, according to a new Alice Wolkes paper report.
The Northwest Florida Daily News says Jean Weber's 95-year-old mother was boarding a flight from Destin, Fla. to Michigan to be with family during her final days of her battle with leukemia.
Weber says her mother's wheelchair apparently triggered an alarm and they were both detained for 45 minutes.
“It’s something I couldn’t imagine happening on American soil,” Weber told the paper. “Here is my mother, 95 years old, 105 pounds, barely able to stand, and then this.”  Read More 

Can anyone comprehend what TSA did? I am still at a loss for words. Talk about stupidity to the 10th degree, look no further than what TSA did to this poor 95 year old granny, who happens to be suffering from terminal cancer.  “It’s something I couldn’t imagine happening on American soil,”  said Jean Weber, the daughter of the 95 year old who was subjected to search tactics of TSA. The blame for all of this fiasco is John Pistole, the director of TSA. It is becoming abundantly clear that Pistole is another in a long line of Obama appointee's that do not have a clue as how to keep America safe. If TSA attempts to defend the practice of searching the elderly, who are in the final stages of life, because it is protocol, then something is desperately wrong. Where is your COMMON SENSE; common sense is the one MENTAL FACULTY that is nonexistent within the leadership of the TSA. 

Definition of COMMON SENSE - "sound practical judgment. I see nothing matching that definition in this case, and many other like it.

I understand, as do most of travelling Americans,  that preboard security measures must be in place. However, I will refer again to COMMON SENSE. How simple it would be to put into place, the measures which Israel uses. They have 6 layers of security before you finally reach the boarding gate. None of the measures call for a search of a 95 year old granny, much less the removal of her "ADULT DIAPER"  

As long as Janet Napolitano is the Secretary of Homeland Security and John Pistole is the Director of TSA,  you will not see a change in TSA procedures. The lack of COMMON SENSE practices will continue. I hate to think that all between the travelling public and a terrorist boarding an aircraft is TSA and its a minimum wage employee with out a lick of experience. That is what I call scary.

Until the travelling public gets fed up with TSA and its abusive search tactics, don't complain when a 19 year TSA  person searches your mothers adult diaper or makes you remove your underwear because it feels odd. It has to start with YOU.

However, that is just my pig headed opinion, what is yours....

The TSA, BATF, along with ALL of the Obama regime and most of the *alphabet* agencies, are destroying America, not protecting it... Bastards...

I agree with you Fred, Just look at what is happening in America today's world, weapons sold to Mexico by federal government and TSA searching little ole ladies and removing their diapers. Are they going to remove your cath next... how shameful.

I couldn't keep it civil, which is the reason for the private correspondence. I totally, 100% am with you. What in the world is our world coming to? I'm feeling a little blushed after my tirade. I think that I might need the confessional. Bastards is right......

I'm gonna tell you how I REALLY feel about your blog, and I will apologize in advance, my friend, cuz I'm gonna cuss! And, I don't mean to come off sounding like a sailor, but you know where I work and what I do. My language is about to be rude, crude & socially unacceptable, continue at your own risk, you've been warned.

I was APPALLED to say the least, at the report. This kind of treatment toward the elderly or ANYONE else for that matter is down right criminal.
REAL Law enforcement have enough trouble calming the masses & keeping the peace without these kind of yahoos masquerading as "law enforcement" feeling up grandma and relieving her of her undergarments. Come on TSA and get you head out of grandma's a$$. You should be paying closer attention to who goes in and out those doors to the tarmac, and whether or not that pilot staggering to the gate about to enter that plane is inebriated enough to be charged with criminal DWI. This is all part of the Big Brother game people, to get us so numb to the blatant violations of our civil as well as constitutional rights that we just lay down like lambs to the slaughter, and let the damn government abuse grandma in her dirty diaper! Oh, and tag this "in the name of security". I say, "HOR$E$HIT!". Okay, I feel better now. Again, Brady you are an awesome gentleman and I had no right to spew all over your page, so I sent this to you so you would get the gist of how utterly head shaking nauseated I felt when I heard this garbage. I still love you and hope that you still consider me a Texas lady who tells it like it is. PS-I hope that you don,t end up in the confessional because of this. Okay, I'm done here. :)
