56. I think this woman was acting so oddly that they would have searched her regardless.

Once you or something you have sets off the alarm, the last thing they want to do is take a chance that you do indeed have a bomb and will explode it under the pretense of taking out whatever innocent item is in your bag. For those who would suggest that a young white woman with child couldn't possibly be a terrorist, isn't that reverse profiling?

As for her terror that her child was taken out of her sight, what was she expecting to happen? That her child would be abandoned on the highway? That he would be kidnapped by the TSA? Seriously, this is one step from the FEMA camps.

As to her concern about missing her flight - here is the info from Delta-

To get a general idea of when you should arrive at the airport, add the required check-in time below to the current security wait time.

Atlanta, GA 45 minutes before departure

I think she was the one cutting things awfully close to begin with.


She runs into trouble at the shopping mall, too.
