Are the TSA agents over stepping there boundries?

Or maybe the question should be, are the TSA agents over stepping there boundries? Because the parents of little Dina Frank are telling a stunningly story.

Little Dina Frank, a seven-year-old with cerebral palsy, while traveling from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport to Florida this week, Dina and her parents had to endure two separate screenings from TSA. Why two? Because after the agents had cleared Dina one time, they came back later to her gate and told her that wasn’t enough and she was forced to endure it a second time.

They make our lives completely difficult,” her father, Dr. Joshua Frank, who is a pediatrician, told The Daily. “She’s not a threat to national security.”…

The Daily explains the series of events:

With her crutches and orthotics, Dina cannot walk through metal detectors and instead is patted down by security agents. The girl, who is also developmentally disabled, is often frightened by the procedure, her father said.

Marcy Frank usually asks the agents to introduce themselves to her daughter, but those on duty on Monday were exceptionally aggressive, Joshua Frank said, and he began to videotape them with his iPhone.

Eventually, a supervisor decided it was sufficient to inspect Dina’s crutches and allowed the family to leave for the gate.

They were there for an hour before the agents reappeared with a manager to tell them that proper protocol had not been followed, and that Dina had to be screened after all, the Franks said. After initially offering to pat her down at the gate, they insisted she return to the security area, Joshua Frank said.

“So then I got aggravated,” he said.

With Dina now in her wheelchair, Frank raced her across the JetBlue terminal, but by then, the family had missed its plane. The Franks caught a subsequent flight.

Did the TSA single out this little girl and if so WHY?

Do we take our national security to the extreme or do we make exceptions to the rule?

Should we profile Terrorist? If so than this little Girl did not fit the profile nor did the little 4 year old Girl in recent weeks. Do our TSA agents need more training?
