234. My two year old daughter was allowed to walk away by the TSA
agents when I got selected for "enhanced" scrutiny on a flight out of Baltimore. I was told to face the wall for a pat-down and when I kept turning my head to try and keep my daughter in sight I was told to face the wall or else. I said that I had to keep my child in my sight. Meanwhile 2 or 3 TSA agents stood there doing jack shit as she walked under the rope and out into the main security area. I went and got her and the female TSA agent who had patted me down (and seemed pissed that she had not discovered some hidden weapon on me) told me that if I left the area again I would be in trouble. I told her that if my daughter left my sight again, I would do whatever I had to to get her back. TSA was miffed that I had nothing they could make a stink about. When they had me go through the metal detector again, my daughter happily followed and the agent manning it got ticked off that she had. They finally let me go, but it scared me to death.
