Mom Furious Over 13-Year-Old Son’s Airport Pat-Down: We Were Treated Like Dogs

A mom is furious over the TSA’s pat-down of her son. “We were treated like dogs,” she said. “I am livid.”
“Aaron cleared traditional x-ray without incidence whatsoever. He placed his backpack on the x-ray scanner, his laptop had not been removed from his backpack, it was removed, returned to the scanner and cleared x-ray without any alarm. He was standing with me while other passenger bags were checked, then an an agent who claimed to be the supervisor said he would require a pat down. I indicated that he was a child and also had Sensory Processing Disorder and I would prefer they find an alternate way to scan him and did not understand what the problem was, since he had already passed x-ray screening without incident.

I was very rudely told that we could do that or we could be escorted out by DFW police and would not be flying and also sarcastically told that I was “setting a great example for my children”. This same apparent supervisor gave us multiple rude comments and made all of us feel targeted because I spoke up in concern for the procedures.

The pat down of Aaron was extremely excessive and seems to me very unfounded after he passed screening without any alarm.”
