    I have to agree Andrew that I would not like one of my granchildren frisked in this manner. However the officer ,in my opinion did not act inapropriately with the little girl. One can not make a true assesment with out the full details of a particular incident and you are not going to get that from the parents who naturaly would be on the side of the child. There had to be reasonable doubt for security to carry out such a search and we are not privy to that reason.I certainly would not speculate but several scenarios come to mind that I am not going to go into for legal reasons. I don`t know the family history or anything about them. I would caution any knee jerk reaction by some of the more outspoken of our forum members.

    I agree. There really should be other procedures for kids. The behavioral contradiction between "I shall not let adults fumble on me" and "Oh, but if an official touches me all over, it's ok", can't be understood by such a small child. An adult can rationalize everything, but not a kid. Kids are way more vulnerable because they are still in the process of developing their personality, their self-esteem and their ability to socialize. They still are overwhelmed by the complexity of the world (as many adults even are) and need clear principles so they feel protected. The relative morals of the adult world are still beyond their comprehension.

    I remember as a child going in for my pre school physical. I was to be starting 1st grade. I remember laying on the doctors table while he poked and prodded and checked me out including "the private area". I was six. I was humiliated. I could only feel shame from it all. I can well imagine what was going on in this child's head to have a stranger feeling her all over like that. Children do not understand out of the blue situations like that. Their brain processes it as a threat.

    IF WE DONT CHECK CHILDREN THE PEOPLE WHO HATE US WILL USE IT AGAINST US. SURELY THERE SHOULD BE A BETTER WAY TO DO IT. BUT EVERYONE MUST BE SUBJECT TO THE POSSIBILITY OF A SEARCH. THE BEST ANSWER I HAVE HEARD IS FOR EVERY FLIGHT TO HAVE NAKED STEWARDESSES MUSLIMS CAN NOT LOOK AT NAKED WOMEN OR THEY ARE DOOMED.

    Teach them early to obey. Sick perverted world everyone goes along with. Only a brainwashed freak could work for "Total Sodomy Administers".

    Teach who early to obey? Obey what? Sodomizes? You mean both gay and straight ones? This child was not sodomized. She was groped by a straight male.

    No, lol...I never opened the link. There was another link on FB showing a man with his hands all over a little girl at an airport too. I thought this was the same story. Now I see it's a whole new story. So two stories now of children being terrorized at airports.

    Strong words from someone who does not know the full facts Rogerw. Who are you calling a brainwashed freak? Was somone sodomised that we are not aware of? I dont agree with the actions carried out but then I dont know the story. I agree with the other answers, take the child to a private room with parents. I could cite times wnen young children were innocent dupes to others so don`t have a knee jerk reaction is my advice.

    Colleen I did not see a man groping, I thought it was a woman doing the frisk. Are my old peepers wearing out, I had the cataracts off. If it was a man how do you know he was straight, was he standing tall or did you see a bulge in his you know what when frisking? Carry on the good work. I dont agree with where frisk was done and definitely disgusted if by a bloke straight or as queer as a 5 cent note. No disrepect to our other wise inclined. To each his own and if you havent tried it don`t knock it.

    Colleen you naughty naughty girl, commenting on the wrong story. What ever will I do with you? Go and stand on the naughty mat you naughty child. See you sweetie.

    The TSA is full of perverts. They must love what they do to the rest of us? And it is LEGAL???

    we cannot racially profile children so if you dont want your child patted down, dont bring them to the airport. you ignorant parents dont want your child patted down, so we can give the terrorist freedom to plant bombs and drugs on babbies and children so the terrorist can say allah aikbar-God is great-kaboom goodbye world.texas high flyer

    Ignorant parents leave their children with people they're not use to being around on a daily basis with rules and ways the child is not use to, and abandon the child (yes, that's how kids see it when mommy and daddy go on a trip without them). Ignorant parents put undue stress on their children by leaving them for days at a time. Ignorant people like you would have children stressed out at an airport because their loving parents want to bring them on vacation with them. Bomb sniffing dogs can check a child easily enough without rubbing himself all over the child. If you're so afraid of terrorists, DON'T FLY. There's no reason to terrorize children just because adults allow their government to terrorize them.
