Wow. The following link is the blog of the young man describing what happened to him at a San Diego airport when he was trying to get on an American Airline flight. The site also includes YouTube videos with all the relevant audio. I think being Muslim, I’ve experienced this sort of thing often (the last time twice within a 2 minute period by 2 different female officers). Not sure how much of a security risk I was with 2 screaming children by my side (literally screaming….Maalik wouldn’t take his shoes off 🙂 But this guy really takes a stand. I don’t think any of his requests were unreasonable, and I’m a bit surprised the airline took it as far as it did.
Happy reading 🙂
