An Atlanta native is claiming that TSA agents took her son from her (and out of her sight) while she was being screened in the security area. TSA is claiming nothing of the sort happened. Here is her story:

and here is the video that the TSA has posted on a blog of the entire event:

Patricia - did you even watch the videos? Please review all the evidence before making stupid statements. There is nothing untowards that happened during those videos, if the child was ever out of her sight (IMO) it was when they were loading the stroller onto the x-ray machine and she took him out and then turned her back on him, but that was her - not the TSA.

I saw that too Leah - in fact, I kept a note of it to make sure! I really think this lady is just an attention seeking nutjob who felt "unjustly" searched or something and just HAD to take it out on someone. The world is just full of weirdos... Heck, I just go on the Welcome page to confirm that! lol...

This quote is from the follow up blog;
"what is shown in the video is incomplete as it leaves out when the security agent took my son to a separate area and out of my sight. this matter is one that is being handled between my family and the TSA.'

If you watch the time on the video, there is no missing pieces from the video.

Nutso.....

Ok seriously, how is what she said even remotely like what ACTUALLY happened? What a nut job. I watched the entire video and nothing remotely unprofessional or unethical happened. What a crazy loser!

Oh... my god. I'm surprised her son's name wasn't Jaxxsonne. She is an A grade bogue.

Well, even reading her blog without reading the other one, I was thinking, "drama queen!" Now, I don't think it'd be beyond the TSA to doctor the video to make her look like a nut, but I do think that whatever happened, she blew it way out of proportion. Even if her child was removed from her sight, it wasn't while she was being searched, and probably was only for a couple of seconds.
Her body language when she came out of that box looked pretty aggressive and confrontational to me. She probably got in trouble and is trying to make the TSA look like the bad guys instead of herself.

WOW.. all i can say is wow...

She's a dumbass.

She spewed a bunch of shit and venom at the TSA agents for being stupid and was afraid of the repurcussions so she decided to escalate it. I don't see any time frame where the shit she claims happened, happened.

I hope TSA sues the fuck out of her for being a bitch. I love her admitting she was carrying non-labeled prescription drugs in her pocket, lmfao, stupid bitch.

She posted a response as her next blog post called "My apologies" where she back pedals and says that she couldn't see her son the entire time. He was right next to her in the pram! I think she got a bug up her ass about having to be wanded and just made the whole process that much more uncomfortable.

I think she's full of it and she was just trying to get some attention. Why? I have no idea, but the video clearly shows the entire incident and there is not one time her baby was taken from her.
