A family was traveling to the “happiest place on earth” and had to endure some really disgusting treatment from TSA
The Mandy family was going through security when two TSA agents singled out 29-year old Drew Mandy out for a special pat down. Drew is severely mentally disabled. His parents said he has the mental capacity of a two-year-old.
“You have got to be kidding me. I honestly felt that those two agents did not know what they were doing,” said his father, Dr. Mandy. TSA goons asked Drew to place his feet on the yellow shoe line, something he didn’t understand. They proceeded to pat his pants down, questioning the padding which was his adult diapers. When the agents asked Drew to take his hand and rub the front and back of his pants so they could swab it for explosives, his dad stepped in and tried to explain that Drew was mentally challenged. “They said, ‘Please, sir, we know what we’re doing,'” Mandy said.
The TSA agents saw Drew holding a six-inch plastic hammer. “My son carries his ball and his hammer for security. He goes everywhere with (them),” said Mandy. The TSA saw the toy as a weapon. Dr. Mandy was told he would need to have the toy shipped if he wanted to keep it, a process which caused them to almost miss their plane, so he pitched it. “It just killed me to have to throw it away because he’s been carrying this like for 20 years,” Mandy said.
What do you expect when Janet Napolitano says, “Using common sense and concentrating terrorist screening efforts on Muslim men under 35 is not good logic?” Really? Take a look at the FBI’s most wanted – notice a pattern?
