The video first surfaced online in 2017. The boy’s mother, Jennifer Williamson, explained on public radio that her family was traveling from Texas to San Diego on a family vacation when her 13-year-old son Aaron, who suffers from Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), was pulled aside for the invasive search by TSA.
According to radio station WIBX 950, Williamson posted the disturbing video to Facebook, where it quickly went viral, garnering tens of thousands of messages from social media users upset over the “creepy” interaction.
“We were told in no uncertain terms that either we comply immediately without question or we be escorted from the airport,” Williamson explained during an appearance on “First News with Keeler in the Morning” in the wake of the ordeal.
The mother agreed with the host that her son was “groped” by the agent. “There was no question it was excessive and way beyond what needs to be necessary,” she said. (Read more from “Disturbing Video of TSA Agent Patting Down Boy With Disability Flagged by Trump” HERE)
