Story has an outrage -- -- mother saying that airport screeners treated her four year old daughter like a terrorist.
Michelle Brady -- saying -- their ordeal began at Wichita -- airport after her mother had to be restrained he got the grandmother the mom and the daughter now.
After setting off the alarm by the grandmother her little -- -- not knowing any better ran back through the checkpoint to give her grandmother -- hug.
That's when Brady Meyer claims TSA agents swooped in.
Giving her are leaving her crying and hysterical daughter a full body pat down.
On her FaceBook page -- Meyer writes quote it was implied several times that my mother.
In their -- to second embrace it passed a hand gun to my daughter and quote.
Scott Brothers -- former senior FAA official in vice president Gephardt.
Government affairs how you -- -- good morning to you I don't know what the truth is here but based on what we know.
What your conclusion.
What an absolute disaster for TSA.
I mean are are really are the four year -- in the grandmothers are those the top terrorist suspects in the world today that's who we should be working -- No I think it was a huge breakdown by TSA.
Clearly what happened was you had the child go through she's cleared the grandmother alarms they got -- resolve that alarm fine.
The kid goes back fine -- screen above but when -- these Jack booted thugs come in and start.
You know and scowling at this poor little girl -- to death separating her from her mother.
It's it's just a disaster might -- you.
Saying here's what the TSA said Scott quote on screen the child had completed screening.
But had contact with another member of her family who had not completed the screening process.
While it was explained to family members why additional screening procedures were necessary in this instance TSA officers did not suspect or suggested child.
Was carrying a firearm.
That make it any better.
I I don't think it makes it any better and I think what happened was you had some probably inexperience TSA folks working that line.
They had a situation and they should have had a manager step in and say.
Folks let's be reasonable here let's put this in the context yes let's -- them both because there was contact with the kid who had been screen and the grandmother who had not.
Let's resolve that but let's not bring them into a private room let's not get this girl so upset.
That she couldn't stop crying and and in and they start to threaten that they have to shut the whole airport down until little -- stops crying.
But -- that it -- or maybe true that the TSA agents try to restrain them already and then situation grew wildly out of hand because of the screaming girl in the mother's hysterical and but I think in the and that's what you're trained to do are you not.
-- wildly out of hand up four year old come -- Yes they should be trained to do -- in a manager should have stepped in and resolve the situation sounds like at the end somebody finally did step in.
But again this is clear that the TSA needs to train their agents better.
To handle these types of I got -- I got to sort of get your larger point ever reach out to the mother Judy -- are the stories we shall.
See what we find them.
