(NaturalNews) The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) continues its reign of terror against innocent Americans, this time aggressively targeting a special needs traveler out of Houston, Tex., who was on his way to Disney World with his family. According to My Fox Houston, TSA agents patted down, questioned, and confiscated the "comfort" item of 29-year-old Drew Mandy, a severely handicapped man -- an act that the agency later admitted was a serious "case of bad judgment."
After giving Drew an invasive pat-down, TSA agents interrogated him about the extra padding in his pants, which turned out to be an adult diaper. They then proceeded to confiscate a six-inch plastic hammer that Drew had carried around with him for 20 years as a comfort item. Anyone who knows even the basics about special needs individuals knows that many many of them carry around comfort items -- but apparently the clueless TSA agents that targeted Drew did not, as they refused to let him keep the hammer, claiming it was a "security threat."
Worse, when Drew's father David tried to intervene and explain to TSA agents why his son was not understanding their instructions, or why he had the harmless hammer, they refused to listen to him and instead retorted, "Please, sir, we know what we're doing." They then took the plastic hammer, hit it against the wall, and said, "See, it's hard. It could be used as a weapon."
If terrorizing and molesting innocent travelers, failing undercover security checks, and aiding and abetting possible criminals is what the TSA is about, then yes, the agency really does know what it is doing, and it is doing it well. But if respecting individual liberty, using common sense, and acting professionally are the TSA's aims, then it is failing miserably.
