Have to love the TSA : Decorated, wounded Marine treated 'shamefully' by security screeners
They invite him to fly in to honor him at the capitol building in CA then treat him like a terrorist at the door. Way to go TSA and California, showing your true colors.


Snip;Kemnitz, severely injured in 2004 in a roadside bomb attack in Fallujah, has limited use of his right arm and cannot lift it above his head. So when security guards at the state capitol building in Sacramento, Calif., asked him to remove his dress blue blouse “because he was wearing too much metal,” and TSA asked him to raise his arms above his head for the full-body scanner at Sacramento International Airport, he could not comply.

“My right arm doesn’t work. It’s a lot of hassle for me to do that,” Kemntiz said.

At the state capitol, the Marine’s refusal to remove his uniform top grew into a heated exchange between Kemnitz, a friend who was accompanying him and security officers.


Snip2;“I feel so strongly that you need to know just how shamefully even a Purple Heart recipient/disabled veteran can be treated by some TSA and security employees,” she said.

Kemnitz said after the incidents that he was not as annoyed with TSA officers as he was with a security screener at the California state capitol, whom he described as rude and unapologetic.

Kemnitz was visiting the building to be honored as his legislative district’s veteran of the year.

“At some places I’m treated like royalty and at some like a terrorist. There’s got to be something in the middle,” he said.

I'm only human, it's my biggest flaw.

We must all realize a sink a chair and a pillow are all luxuries of home and a soldiers helmet takes the place of all three.

Sad, and pathetic.

Why don't military combat personnel see what is going on?

I guess they are brainwashed into being order-takers.

Obviously you did not even read it…

It’s about humiliation of the average person including and especially the disabled at the hands of the TSA and government security personal while at the same time these groups avoid stopping select ethnic groups in fear of legal actions.

Besides that they invited him to come the capital to honor him! Then did not want to let him in at the door.

It is in military times, they are watching and know they are pawns.

Let’s just say I don’t think disabled vets should be given the third degree at their own honors ceremony that the state invites them to. Then again I have come to expect nothing less form California.




In fact some things need a special helping hand and the vets step up to the plate when called.
