    A disabled woman was beaten bloody by federal agents during an airport security screening while on her way to undergo treatment for a brain tumor.

    Hannah Cohen set off the metal detector at a security checkpoint at the Memphis International Airport, and she was led away for additional screening, reported WREG-TV.

    “They wanted to do further scanning, (but) she was reluctant — she didn’t understand what they were about to do,” said her mother, Shirley Cohen.

    Cohen said she tried to tell agents with the Transportation Security Administration that her 19-year-old daughter is partially deaf, blind in one eye, paralyzed and easily confused — but she said police kept her away from the security agents.

    The confused and terrified young woman tried to run away, her mother said, and agents violently took her to the ground.

    “She’s trying to get away from them, but in the next instant, one of them had her down on the ground and hit her head on the floor,” Cohen said. “There was blood everywhere.”

    The young woman, who was returning home after finishing treatment for the brain tumor at St. Jude Hospital, was arrested and booked into jail.

    Authorities eventually threw out the charges against Hannah Cohen, but her family has filed a lawsuit against Memphis police, airport police and the TSA.

    Neither police department commented on the suit, but a spokesperson for the TSA said passengers should notify agents ahead of time if they have special needs.

    “Passengers can call ahead of time to learn more about the screening process for their particular needs or medical situation,” said TSA spokesperson Sari Koshetz.

    If she'd just worn a hijab, she would have been treated as a VIP.

    Flying is not a right. Some conditions may preclude a person from flying...or successfully passing trough security.

    They were being non-descriminating. Treating her like any other person who would appear to be circumnavigating security.

    So now, we're supposed to profile a runner and treat them differently?

    I feel bad for her but she fucked up by freaking out and expecting special treatment.

    Not all veterans are brilliant. The airport from which I normally travel seems to have a large percentage of TSA who are ex-military. Some aren't the brightest lights in the chandelier.

    I appreciate their service and all, but just because they were in the military does not automatically mean they are all smart and effective.

    Read the article. Her mother was trying to tell the Gustipo what was wrong with her but the cops held her back.

    I always wonder what it is like to live in an alternate reality. How did this thread become about Muslims and their preferential treatment at airports? It truly is a gift you have been blessed with.
