Video: TSA Thug Forces 95-Year-Old Lady To Remove Her Adult Diaper

By Robert Paul Reyes

"TSA security officers at Florida`s Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport patted down a cancer-stricken, 95-year-old woman and forcibly removed her adult diaper during the search, CNN reports. Could this end up being yet another TSA PR nightmare?


Jean Weber was traveling with her ill mother on June 18 from Florida to Michigan to see relatives "in the final stages of her battle with leukemia" when the incident occurred.

Weber told CNN that while she thinks the officers may have been `"procedurally correct...the procedure needs to be changed.` Weber noted that her mother had had a blood transfusion the week before."|aim|dl1|sec1_lnk2|73323

In the last couple of years TSA goons have committed many outrages. They`ve asked a woman to remove her prosthetic breast, groped infants, and they routinely sexually molest thousands of passengers every day.

I thought I had seen and heard it all, but now comes this latest TSA outrage. A 95-year-old cancer-stricken lady is forced to remove her adult diaper and board the plane without underwear.

The behavior of the TSA goons is reprehensible and inexcusable, but what`s even harder to take is the meekness and timidity of the flying public. If a security guard in a department store ordered an elderly woman to take off her diapers, because he suspected she was hiding stolen merchandise, holy hell would ensue. The shoppers simply wouldn`t allow an elderly woman to be humiliated, they would pummel the guard if he didn`t leave her alone. Why is it that we become such wimps when we enter an airport, and meekly stand by while an old lady or a baby is being victimized? Wasn`t there one man or one woman with the backbone to stand up for that poor lady?

A TSA moron told Weber that her mother`s Depends underwear was "wet and firm" and that they needed to take a closer look at it. The stupidity of the TSA agents boggles the mind!

How many more outrages will we tolerate, before we finally take action to stop the insanity! We can bring TSA criminal behavior to a swift end if we simply refuse to travel by air until these invasive and morally reprehensible pat downs are banned.
