Parents nightmare...  

You can ignore this is you wish. I felt compelled to post it.

As I sit and write this post, 24 hours after this event took place, my hands still shake… with rage and with terror.


I woke up this morning to my husband’s alarm clock, sat straight up in bed and thought “Where’s Jackson?” with fear paralyzing me.

My worst nightmare took place yesterday. Worse than events that have taken place and that I have survived in my short 28 years of living. Worse than my wildest of dreams could conjure.

My son was taken from me.


My son was taken from me by the TSA agents at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson airport yesterday.

He was taken away from me and OUT OF MY SIGHT because his pacifier clip went off when I carried him through the metal detector.

According to the Transportation Security Administration website,We will not ask you to do anything that will separate you from your child or children.”

Bullshit TSA.

You took my son. MY SON.

Now you are guilty until proven innocent. I don't care if they think you are a criminal. They could be decent to people. And they should never take a child from a parents sight. They could have checked this child within the mothers sight.

As a mother of a child I can say this IS a nightmare ... but I think no matter if you are a parent or not you feel that this is not a correct practice. There is no explanation or excuse for taking a child away from their parents in situation like that ...

Totally agree. I do understand the idea that they have to figure out what set off the detector but they could have done it right that or taken them both behind a security screen.

Holy shit. This is a nightmare. I can't imagine it. I would be hysterical. That was ridiculous. There was no excuse and charges should be pressed. Unacceptable.

I agree. I mean I don't care if they are security. They have no right and their site even says something like this will never happen.

I know. I still think she should have brought it up with someone or even gone to the press. Anything to show people just how awful this is turning out to be.

Yeah, I'm glad there wasn't any pat downs while you were there. I couldn't take that. I don't know what I'll do if they put the scanners in our airport. I just can't do it.
