TSA "Apologizes" for Detaining Girl in Wheelchair
Doesn't look like an apology to me.

Quote:DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The TSA has apologized to an 11-year-old girl who was detained for nearly an hour last week at DFW International Airport after agents said they found explosive residue on her hands.

The girl, Shelbi Walser, suffers from a bone disorder and uses a wheelchair to get around. She and her mother were traveling to Florida for medical treatment when the incident occurred.

The TSA released the following statement to KRLD.

“We regret that the experience of this young lady was not a positive one as we always strive to screen passengers with dignity and respect while ensuring the safety of all travelers. Everything TSA does is designed to protect against another terrorist attack. In all likelihood, this traveler would have presented no risk, yet we could take no chances. She alarmed for explosive residue and TSA took the necessary steps to resolve the alarm.”


I do NOT look forward to the next time I have to fly with a prosthesis. You might be reading about me after an "altercation with TSA personnel."
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.
