66. How would you feel?
>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?<

Sooo, a complete stranger takes possession of one's two-year-old child, and will not give information as to where that child is, or what the purpose is of separating the child in the first place. If the child in question was being taken away for a more intensive body cavity type search, it should have been done in front of the parent, period. There's also the tiny issue of the fact that a two-year-old can run pretty fast if they want to. Imagine the fun of a two-year-old racing through a crowded airport, for instance.

There are parents in our neighborhood that won't let their kids play in the front yard without supervision. When my niece was younger and we were out for the afternoon, she was NEVER out of my sight, and she was a hell of a lot older than two then.

There is no justification for what happened to this woman and her child. None. To pretend like there is is ridiculous.
