TSA Harasses And Shames Yet Another Disabled Veteran

Tuesday, July 9, 2013

A Purple Heart Marine was groped and swabbed by TSA agents recently at a California airport while on his way to a ceremony to honor him as veteran of the year in his district.

Cpl. Nathan Kemnitz sustained severe injuries from a IED detonation while on duty in Fallujah, Iraq in 2004. While traveling to Sacramento, to receive the award, TSA agents at Sacramento International Airport pulled Kemnitz aside for additional screening.

When the screeners ordered him to lift up his arms for a full body scan, the decorated veteran told the TSA goons that because of his injuries, he cannot lift up his right arm.

‘My right arm doesn’t work. It’s a lot of hassle for me to do that,’ Kemnitz told The Military Times.

The screeners then proceeded to probe underneath Kemnitz’s medals, while feeling under the Marine’s waistband and swabbing his shoes for explosives.

Disgusted with his treatment, Kemnitz’s escort Patricia Martin snapped photos of the search and made them public.
