Complaint filed against TSA for patting down 6-year-old boy twice
On the same day that the Transpiration Security Administration (TSA) announced that they would try to avoid patting down children, a six-year-old boy from Kirkland, Washington was patted down twice.
The family of four was on their way to DisneyLand when the boy was singled out to be hand searched.
“Immediately after this happened, my son, I hugged him and he started crying and saying, ‘I don’t want to go to DisneyLand anymore.'” Jenine Michaelis told KING 5.
The TSA has said they will take the family’s complaint seriously.
