TSA sued for beating deaf, partially blind teen recovering from brain surgery

Infowars – by Adan Salazar

The TSA is listed as a defendant in a suit accusing them of injuring a mentally disabled teen after she was unable to understand or comply with orders at a security checkpoint.

Newly surfaced photos show the aftermath of the June 30, 2015 incident, in which agents roughed up 19-year-old Hannah Cohen leaving her bloodied and bruised.  

“They wanted to do further scanning; she was reluctant. She didn’t understand what they were about to do,” her mother Shirley Cohen told WREG.

The lawsuit claims before Hannah had brain tumor surgery at St. Jude’s hospital, she already had “a physical and mental impairment that substantially limit one or more of her life activities.”

“More particularly,” the lawsuit continues, “[Hannah] has damage from radiation and removal of a brain tumor that substantially limits her ability to speak, walk, stand, see, hear, care for herself, learn and work, think, concentrate, and interact with others.”

“This substantial limitation is obvious upon sight and was obvious” on the day of the incident, the lawsuit filed in US District Court states.

“She’s trying to get away from them,” Hannah’s mother described, “but in the next instant, one of them had her down on the ground and hit her head on the floor. And I looked and there’s blood everywhere.”

All the while Shirley was kept from being able to help her daughter, causing her “extreme emotional injury as she watched the personnel assault her daughter,” according to court documents obtained by Infowars.

The Memphis International Airport Police Department is also included as a defendant in the suit for “arresting her for no cause.”

“Hannah was arrested, booked and on the night she should have been celebrating the end of her treatment, she was locked up in Jail East,” reports WREG.

“Here we were with nowhere to go, not even a toothbrush, our bags had gone to Chattanooga,” Shirley said.

TSA did not comment on the case, but referred travelers with special accommodations to call their TSA Cares hotline.

The Cohens’ are asking for $100,000 in damages.

  1. “More particularly,” the lawsuit continues, “[Hannah] has damage from radiation…”

    Radiation? That’s that cancer TREATMENT, right?

    She’s lucky to have even survived.

    TSA was attempting to finish the ‘job’ that the so-called ‘medical’ profession started.

    They’ll pay for their treachery & treason… with their lives!

  2. 1. Only a totalitarian dictatorship has “Security Checkpoints”.
    2. Only a totalitarian dictatorship would attack young woman, or child for not obaying “Dog Training Commands”.

    We are Americans!!! Why in God’s name are we tollerating all of this tyrany?
    1. They have guns and mean men in black uniforms.
