TSA Denies Report That Agents Stole Candy From Deaf Man And Cursed Him Out
[link to www.huffingtonpost.com]

The Transportation Security Administration is denying a widely-reported incident in which a deaf student accused the
agency of harassing him at an airport checkpoint in Louisville. The agency says that a review of 120 hours of
closed circuit video over three days this month does not back up those claims.


In a post on the TSA website on Thursday, the agency said it "takes allegations of misconduct seriously. Immediately
following a complaint by the passenger, TSA launched an investigation into the alleged incident, which included a
review of more than 120 hours of CCTV footage from a three-day period to look for any scenes that matched the
information in the blog post. A close examination of the video during this timeframe indicates that officers working
the checkpoint were professional and appropriate with all passengers."

The TSA then laid out what it called "the facts":

TSA has zero tolerance for discrimination of any kind. When TSA found out the NAD conference was coming to
Louisville, TSA reached out to NAD and other members of its disability coalition while Transportation Security Officers
at SDF received additional training on screening deaf passengers from local experts in the field.

After a review of the video, TSA found no footage that matches the information in the blog post, such as Officers
removing food during any bag search and eating it, or anything to indicate that they were pointing at and
ridiculing a passenger.

In general, candy is not a prohibited item, and would only warrant additional screening if it alarmed. TSA does not
donate surrendered food and drink items for health and safety reasons.
