Physician Parents Threatened By TSA Before 6 Year Old Daughter Was Groped: Good Morning America (Video)

Video - GMA - April 13, 2012

The parents of a six year old girl who was subjected to an enhanced pat-down at the hands of the TSA appeared confused and disturbed in an interview on ABC News' Good Morning America today as they called for a change in security procedures.

Selena and Dr. Todd Drexel, of Bowling Green, Ky., were thrust into the spotlight this week after a video of their daughter, Anna, being searched at New Orleans Armstrong International Airport went viral on the internet.

The couple said they allowed the video to be uploaded to Youtube in order to gauge other opinions on the incident which they feel was very wrong.

"Initially she was just confused," Todd Drexel said. "Afterward she broke down crying because she really didn't understand what she had done wrong." he added.

"I did ask for alternatives, I asked for her to be rescanned. They just refused and said they were going to do what they were going to do." Selena Drexel said, adding that a TSA supervisor made it clear in a non verbal way that "there would be trouble" if the parents "caused a fuss" and refused to allow the pat down to be completed.

Mrs Drexel added that TSA agents did not adequately answer her questions when she asked why her daughter had been selected for a pat-down.

"We struggle to teach our kids to protect themselves, to say 'no, it's not ok to touch me in this way in this area," Mrs Drexel, said. "Yet here we are saying it's ok for these people." If we don't find other ways we're making them more vulnerable, she said, adding that procedures for children should be changed.

Anna's reaction to the incident speaks volumes. She was upset and distressed because she thought she had done something wrong and was being punished by the so called authorities. The untainted innocence of the child's view of the incident tells you that there is something very very wrong with the way millions of Americans are allowing their government to act in the name of security.

To pick out a six year old child a a possible security threat and frisk her for dangerous weapons in an American airport is utterly insane, however it is far from an isolated incident. If anyone else abducted someone's child and then sexually molested them they would be rightly called a pedophile and locked up for a long time, but when the government does it we deem it acceptable.

If one chooses to fly in this environment, some may question ones sanity.
If flying was boycotted for a short period how long would the TSA survive?

Reading about the abuse by the scum TSA, that you Americans go through to fly. I don't understand that no scum from TSA got lynched by the people! What's going on? Are you got to be pussies because of Mc Do & Coca Cola ingestion?

Yep...I wouldn't go to an airport for anything...however,
There would DEFINITELY be "trouble" if you didn't do exactly what I asked when it came to my children. Up to, and including, lethal action. Period.
I'm not claiming to be superman, nor do I claim that I would get away with this..I'm sure I wouldn't. But that is what the scenario would be for me. There's no question.....I do not play little corrupt games when it comes to my kids safety and freedom(mental and physical).....period.
Besides that, me and my family's safety is the only thing I have left to fight for at the moment anyway...everything else has been taken. I'd be glad to help get it back for me and everyone else..but I will not even begin to try to do it myself...alone, I know I do not have the means to make a dent, or even a scratch.

Until those troops are dispersed from every area they are in at the present time, whether by Govt action, or by awol/mutiny of the troops themselves...AND until every central bank and reserve (world wide!)have DIRECT civilian and military action against them, this is the way it will be for me...fighting for me and my family's lives, until I am dead.
If these things do not seem connected to you, I do not know what to tell you.

Good. I'm glad it happened, because if this woman was "confused" by the TSA's behavior, it's only because she's been ignoring this nation's problems for years, and staring into the TV like an idiot instead of performing her civic duty of keeping herself informed. If they actually sodomized her baby, the bimbo might actually wake the F&^k up.

considering the children of the Branch Davidians, who were at home and NOT at the "Lions Den" airport this little girl is fortunate to carry the emotional scars, which may heal given time...

At some point, doesn't a father have to step in to protect his child, and just beat the shit out of the TSA agent?
