Videos like this simply shouldn’t exist.  It seems morally offensive to post them, but it is a greater moral offense to put them aside and let more children be touched like this.

[Edit: It appears the mother of the child has taken down the original video, but another person has put it online at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3sH1GaO_nw ]

The poster of the video claims to be the child’s mother, who says she was threatened with jail if she did not allow the screeners to molest her child.  As you may know, the TSA has no power of arrest, and therefore making such a false claim would appear to be illegal coersion.  I’ve forwarded the video to the Louisiana State Police — cid_neworleans@dps.la.gov — and anxiously await a response.

This is what we’re fighting against.
