    and that's my point
    THIS screener played by the rules
    THIS screener was not going to allow himself to be one who allowed a threat to get past the last line of defense
    rather than criticizing his thoroughness we should laud it

    These screeners didn't step up to help this Marine stand, when he obviously couldn't without a lot of pain. What rule was this? Where was the decency? No where to be found in TSA training, that's for sure.

    I donít think military members should get special treatment in security screening. After all, our history is full of active and former military members committing all manner of crimes, from Presidential assassinations, to mass shootings, to blowing up federal buildings.

    I do believe the TSA should treat all people with respect and should give special assistance to those who are not physically able to follow all instructions easily, as in the case with this Marine.

    The real crime is that this man lost his legs at all based upon a pack of lies by Bush/Cheney et al.

    Government treat us with decency and dignity? Not on their own accord, we have to make them. How much is our dignity worth? What is the price of our humanity? TSA shows that the government will disrespect us, infringe upon our rights, marginalize us at every turn if we are not careful. This is a Republic if we can keep it, I suggest we all figure out what that means.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    What more proof do we need to show that TSA is a waste of money? Hmm? We've had them search children (even a disabled crying girl in a wheelchair), the elderly, etc...

    This should be the straw that broke the camel's back. A vet who lost his legs gets harassed by these rent-a-cops? It is infuriating. This whole system along with Homeland Security needs to be ABOLISHED ASAP!

    No that is not your point. Your point is if they follow the letter of the law everything will be alright. That is bull****, and where common sense comes in.

    It is **** like this that morons think is acceptable that got us into this situation to begin with. This is not acceptable and there is no defense for the way they acted. You do not make a person in a wheelchair stand without help etc. How much brain power does it take to figure this out?
