I heard this on our local news yesterday and at first I was shocked but then they got to the part where the stroller set off alarms .. call me super suspicious but I don't put it past some people to use baby or baby equipment as a cover for smuggling .. therefore I agree that the TSA employees were just doing their jobs.
