Have you ever seen a child say that they didn't want to go to Disney World?  I never thought I would ever see a 3 year-old little girl say over and over, "I don't want to go to Disney World," but that's what happened after a disabled 3 year-old girl was traumatized by the TSA.

The TSA did apologize, but the way they handle some disabled passengers really seems to lack common sense.

It is clear that new equipment is needed.  Terrorists in the past have used people to transport bombs including infants.  The real question is do we need this TSA at all.

That's horrible!  The TSA really has a bad public image, and stories like this are not doing them any favors.  The video in the article was followed by several other videos where the TSA mistreated and mishandled passengers with disabilities.  The entire organization needs to check themselves.
