TSA Apologizes for Disabled Toddler Harassment

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The U.S. Transportation Security Administration has issued an apology after an embarrassing video, filmed by a Missouri couple, painted its agent in very poor light.

On February 8, TSA screeners in St. Louis stopped Annie Schulte and her three-year old disabled daughter on their way to Orlando.

As Schulte explains in the video below - as well as to ABC News - she became alarmed when an agent claimed it was illegal for her to film the agents patting down and screening her daughter, who was visibly/loudly upset by the confusing situation.

The agents are refused to hand over the daughter's stuffed animal at first, even though it had already passed through security. Watch events unfold now:

In response to this incident, the TSA sent out a statement that reads:

"TSA regrets inaccurate guidance was provided to this family during screening and offers its apology," the agency said. "We are committed to maintaining the security of the traveling public and strive to treat all passengers with dignity and respect. While no pat-down was performed, we will address specific concerns with our workforce."

The family has accepted the apology and the child has received a happy ending: she made it to Disney World and met Mickey Mouse.

Since Pink Floyd is against the school system that oppresses little children and I am against the TSA that oppresses American children, therefore I would like to present a parody called "Another Trick Of The Horse" to be sung to the tune of the song "Another Brick In The Wall" for protest against TSA tyranny under Obama.You can open a YouTube video of the song and sing along to the lyric below. (Kids sing "leave us kids alone") We don't need no molestation.
We don't need no false control.
No racial profile in the airport.
Screeners leave them kids alone.
Hey! Screeners! Leave them kids a lone!
All in all it's just another brick in the wall.
All in all it's just another trick of the horse.

TSA IS PLAYING PAT DOWN (A parody of "Santa Clause is Coming to Town". For white girls use She instead of He) Oh! You better watch out,
Get ready to cry,
Get ready to shout,
I'm telling you why:
TSA is playing pat down. He's making a list,
Checking it twice.
Gotta sort out black kids from white.
TSA is playing pat down. He sees you when you're crying,
He knows that you are white.
He knows you can tell bad from good,
So cry'n shout for goodness sake. Oh! You better watch out,
Get ready to cry,
Get ready to shout ,
I'm telling you why:
