TSA Keeping Us Safe from the Elderly … 95 Year Old Woman Asked to Remove Adult Diaper
The TSA is at it again … once again keeping America safe from
terrorists the elderly. Does the TSA actually search individuals who might commit terror acts … I guess it Depends.
Just when you had thought the TSA could not be more moronic in their effort to keep airlines safe from terrorism, they keep amazing us.The latest despicable act by the TSA was done at Northwest Florida Regional Airport. A 95 years old, 105 pounds, barely able to stand, who was in a wheelchair was asked to remove her adult diaper during the search by the TSA. ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!
A woman has filed a complaint with federal authorities over how her elderly mother was treated at Northwest Florida Regional Airport last weekend.
Jean Weber of Destin filed a complaint with the Department of Homeland Security after her 95-year-old mother was detained and extensively searched last Saturday while trying to board a plane to fly to Michigan to be with family members during the final stages of her battle with leukemia.
Her mother, who was in a wheelchair, was asked to remove an adult diaper in order to complete a pat-down search.
“It’s something I couldn’t imagine happening on American soil,” Weber said Friday. “Here is my mother, 95 years old, 105 pounds, barely able to stand, and then this.”
And the following is the continued stupidity from the TSA. Oh, let’s not profile actual terrorists … let’s embarrass, harass and humiliate the elderly. Let’s act like a bunch of imbeciles because a blue haired granny might have plastic explosive in their adult diapers. ARE YOU PEOPLE FRIGGIN INSANE!!! Way to keep America safe from the elderly. So what will be the TSA’s new motto, Keeping America’s sky’s safe, one diaper at a time?
Koshetz said the procedures are the same for everyone to ensure national security.
“TSA cannot exempt any group from screening because we know from intelligence that there are terrorists out there that would then exploit that vulnerability,” she said.
The Right Scoop is correct, the GOP needs to make this a political issue for 2012. The fondling of children, the humiliating of cancer survivors, military vets, and rape victims ,and the embarrassment of the elderly must stop. Enough of the ‘politically correct” BS … profile terrorist, not this sham that you call keeping America safe.

Maybe the screenings have become like affirmative action. You must feel up at least one dying grandmother a week to be sure the airways are safe…and one heavily pregnant mother-to-be, and one priest, and one 2 year old child, etc.
It is time the TSA is defunded by the House of Represenatives in their budget process.
Take away the money and this will stop.
Texas is back in the game to close out this type of activity despite the threats by the feds to declare a no-fly zone. Since Texas is home to three major airlines, the threat is an empty one.
I have not flown since 9/11 and will never fly again. Only way I would is if my children’s or husband’s life depended on it. NO other reason period!
Unbelievable! My husband and I fly back and forth from Newark to Ft Lauderdale every 3-4 weeks and not ONCE have we been patted down, asked to open a bag etc. We just had this conversation this morning that the Newark airport is very negligent in asking anyone to submit to a pat down. This country is crumbling…
I find it rather amusing that President Obama reacted that the police “acted stupidly” when his friend was arrested, yet he is tight lipped when it comes to the abuse that so many Americans endure with the renegade and out of control TSA.
Oh yeah, no profiling. The reality here is John Pistole and his ilk needs to be fired on the spot for his ineptness and replaced with more qualified personnel…
GRANDMA SHOULD HAVE CRAPPED THAT DIAPER BEFORE SHOVING IT THE FACE OF THE TSA DUMMY.
You bunch of FOOLS, your so naïve as to how weak you make your protection because of your righteous attitude and demands for morality or justice. A little history for the ignorant people.
Our soldiers in Vietnam wouldn’t allow any adults to approach them while on patrol, but they would allowed children to come up to them to receive candy, until one day children carrying concealed explosives under their cloths, started killing our soldiers all over Vietnam. Our Enemies will exploit any and all weaknesses. I could give example after example all day, but You will continue to think that your in the right until the first aircraft is blown out of the sky. YOUR ALL SO NAIVE. OH I do wish that the TSA procedures were not needed.
SM: I had to be the bearer of this news … THIS AIN’T VIETNAM.
Let the 20 year old terrorist looking dude pass thru because of PC bullshit but frisk the cancer dying 95 yo woman. Yea, make sense of that.
GET A CLUE! In Israel,young girls and boys (suicide bombers) would go into public areas and detonate themselves. Public transportation and shopping malls. Oh and profiling doesn’t work, but you think that all terrorist are as you say “20 year old terrorist looking dude” TERRORIST come in all colors, ages, and all walks of life. The 95 yo woman or a 5 yo chjld can kill you just as fast as that 20 year old terrorist looking dude. It’s too bad that we learn from our mistakes only after the fact. The man (terrorist) with a bomb in his shoes. AFTER THE EVENT. Now everyone must remove their shoes. MAKE SENSE OF THAT – DUDE You get a clue yet? Enemies will exploit any and all weaknesses.
SM: To follow your logic all forms of transportation should cease. There is a better way to do this and it isn’t feeling up little girls and humiliating grandma.
You best get a clue.
Your logic is what put a lot of people in harms way. It’s really tragic that their is nothing that I or anyone else could say to educate people like you to the realities of this world. Look at the video again with your eyes open this time, no one is as you put it “feeling up little girls” A female TSA inspector used the back of her hand, not pressing down nor lingered in any area of the body. So what is that better way and when will it be put into action! At this point their is no intellectual conclusion here. A tragedy must happen again before everyone will see our weaknesses. SO VERY SAD.
SM: Sorry, just how many TSA agents have prevented terrorists from getting on a plane? How many TSA agents have allowed knives & other weapons on planes?
[...] they were too busy fondling little boys and girls and making elderly grandma’s with cancer remove their diapers in the name of security. Authorities are trying to determine how a stun gun got aboard a JetBlue [...]
