Our society has become so anal, intolerant and guilty of having absolutely no commons sense whatsoever, as displayed by TSA’s latest terrorist incident.
Diana Durkin, a 19-year-old college student was in line at the Houston Hobby Airport when she saw someone else wearing hoodie from the same college that she attended – Texas Tech – and without thinking of the seriousness and international danger she posed, she gave the person in the Texas Tech hoodie a finger gun sign which is a long held tradition at the school, especially at football games. TSA agents saw her gesture and pulled her out of line as if she was some dangerous international jihadist terrorist.
(Constitution.com) – It’s the textbook description of the modern day terrorist. White American Female – 19 years of age – long blonde hair – bright blue eyes – classic jihadi.
Really – Diana Durkin, sophomore at Texas Tech University – a terrorist?
Well, that’s what she thought as a TSA official (official dope maybe) pulled her out of line at Houston’s Hobby Airport.
“Oh my gosh, they think I’m a terrorist… Oh my gosh I’m going to jail,” Miss Durkin said she remembered thinking. “I’m just sitting there, almost in tears, like, No, I’m just really dumb, I’m not a terrorist!’”
And why was she flagged? As Diana tweeted: “In the airport screening line and I see someone wearing a Texas Tech hoodie and I look at them and do the gun hand signal because wreck em amiright…tsa is now pulling me aside to talk to me :((” …
Durkin explained that her gesture is a traditional one for the school, TSA agents told her she wasn’t allowed to do that in an airport and then the subjected her to a full body scan and pat down. I wonder what TSA agents would do if someone gave a tomahawk chop gesture? This is as ridiculous as a young kid being suspended from school for chewing his toaster pastry into the shape of a gun or kids on the playground suspended for pretend shooting, or the girl who was suspended for telling her friend that when they got home, she would shoot her with her Hello Kitty Bubble Gun.
