Mother's video shows the uncomfortable moment a TSA agent patted down her son

Jennifer Williamson was trying to fly out of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport with her son Aaron.

We have been through hell this morning. They detained Aaron for well over an hour at DFW. (And deliberately kept us from our flight... we are now on an alternate) We were treated like dogs because I requested they attempt to screen him in other ways per TSA rules. He has SPD and I didn't want my child given a pat down like this. Let me make something else crystal clear. He set off NO alarms. He physically did not alarm at all during screening, he passed through the detector just fine. He is still several hours later saying "I don't know what I did. What did I do?" I am livid. Please, share... make this viral like the other children's videos with TSA... I wish I had taped the entire interchange because it was horrifying. We had two DFW police officers that were called and flanking him on each side. Somehow these power tripping TSA agents who are traumatizing children and doing whatever they feel like without any cause, need to be reined in.

While going through Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screening, Williamson requested that her son, who has Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), be screened through a method alternative to a pat down.

Despite her request, a TSA agent proceeded with a pat down, which Williamson then recorded. The ordeal is a bit uncomfortable to watch.

In a Facebook post, Williamson said that her son did not set off any alarms. She went into more detail of the scene:

The TSA has faced severe backlash over accusations of overly aggressive screening, including one popular 2016 incident with a disabled teenager. The agency has also faced accusations of ineffectiveness, as a 2015 report showed that the TSA failed 95 percent of undercover airport security tests, missing weapons and explosives.
