TSA: No Deaf Harassment
The TSA says it never happened. The federal agency denies a report going around the Internet and passed around social media that a deaf student was harassed by agents last week at the Louisville airport following this year's National Association of the Deaf conference. A look at more than 100 hours of video does not support the claim, the TSA announced. The airport is small and there is only one security checkpoint. The original blog post claimed a TSA agent took candy out of a deaf students bag and called him a "f- deafie." The account where the claim was made was taken down by Tumblr. The complainer never identified himself.
