An active-duty Marine who lost both his legs to an Improvised Explosive Device was humiliated by TSA agents after he was forced to remove his prosthetic legs and was then ordered to stand so agents could inspect his wheelchair for explosives.

Congratulations, Tractorman! San Diego or Parris Island? Will you go to the graduation?
San Diego and yes I will be going to graduation.
It’ll probably still be cold here in Wisconsin in June so I’m looking forward to it even more.
So as I see it, this active-duty Marine was made to stand on his stubs for these ba$tards.
Over half of the Americans in our country and almost 100% of the politicians (so called leaders), do not deserve the defense and security our military or any other patriots.
Whatever happens when the SHTF (and it most certainly will), I can’t help but believe that something far better than this predominantly POS filled country will rise from the ashes.
Thank God I was able to enjoy the 50s, then the Space program and later President Ronald Reagan.... everything else has sucked.
Obama, his filthy democrats, his media and the RINOs have ruined this once great country. I will never forgive them, never.
My son went through SD, graduated in February, and my husband’s two sons did PI, as did he. SD was a great place to go in February! Check out Marineparents.com if you have not already been there.
Thanks for the website tip.
I’ll check it out later.
God bless you and your heroes.
I have words to describe how I feel about the TSA behavior or intelligence level, but I’m not allowed to use them on FR.
Congrats. My oldest should just about have arrived at Camp Pendleton - his first FMF assignment.
Given their CinC - may God help them both...
Just remember that these morons are the ones they will arm up with full auto AR’s, a billion rounds and 2717 BS armored trucks to confront and suppress us. I predict the shortest confrontation in world history. :-)
I use a cane and occasionally a wheelchair. It all depends on how far I need to travel and how my heart and lungs are doing on a given day.
On the day that Obama was elected, the first time, I was on the Island of Kawaii and headed home to the mainland.
Security took my cane and placed it on the conveyor, it was on my lap. I was then pushed into a search area and made to stand while they took their time to search the chair... an airport wheelchair. He then frisked me, several times. He kept telling me that I could step behind a curtain to be search, I declined each time. Finally I was pi$$ and loudly told him to get on with his search, do it now, do it in public with witnesses and IF I COULD WALK TO THE CURTAIN, I DAMN SURE WOULDN’T NEED A WHEELCHAIR OR CANE. I wanted to make a very big scene, but I was concerned with being separated from my family and forced to take a boat or get a lawyer just to get home..... that would have cost thousands.
He was a skinny black man in his 40’s and I suspect he was feeling his new power now that his idol had won the race.
American hero humiliated by characters who aren’t fit to wipe his *ss for him.
What America has come to.
One guy responding at the link had an awesome idea - replace TSA with our returning soldiers. Who better to do the job.
One thing patriots need to remember is that the TSA agents are human beings just like us. They work, then they go home to communities. And that's where they can be taken down. We all know some and where they live.
” One guy responding at the link had an awesome idea - replace TSA with our returning soldiers. Who better to do the job.”
The soldiers would have quite a bit more respect for people, especially the old or infirm.
God bless him and you too.
Thanks and may God help us all.
( I’m still not fluent in all acronyms. What’s FMF?)
Thanks and God bless you too!
“He was a skinny black man in his 40s and I suspect he was feeling his new power now that his idol had won the race.”
That’s what the TSA is all about. None of its practices and procedures make us safe. It’s all about power.
they are ‘just stupid’ - like in brain dead. No individual discration - they do this to handicapped old grannies and 3 year olds too -
Don't forget www.armslist.com. Sort of like Craigslist but for guns and ammo, etc.. You can find private sellers there w/o waiting for a gun show. If you have weapons that were run through the system during a retail purchase, you could also sell them to get rid of anything that is associated to you in the records they weren't supposed to keep.
I’m guessing the Marine looked like a soft target to TSA Capt. Dunderhead. Didn’t mention if the Marine was actually in uniform but if he was on duty he probly should have had an escort and his ID card. Traveling on gummint orders should minimize his inconvenience. But maybe Capt. Jerkoff was making up for the last time he saw me. Picture a full grown guy who travels with nothing and dresses like he’s ready for either a fight or work and looks like he already has. Maybe it’s just command presence but they barely want to talk to me never mind picking nits. I am always amazed at how fast those TSA bleepheadz get me thru check-in. Sometimes I give them something to “find” like a bottle of water and it makes them so very happy. But they practically push me thru check-in. So I guess they find softer targets to harrass.-————————Best wishes to the Marine-—Semper Fi.
