Thanks be to the TSA for keeping their eyes on a budding terrorist.
Ever since he was two years old, Mikey Hicks has been getting extra attention from the TSA when he flies.
He was recently frisked aggressively when his family flew to the Bahamas for vacation on Jan 2, just days after the so-called â€œunderwear bomberâ€ attempted to ignite explosives on a flight from Amsterdam to Michigan.
â€œUp your arms, down your arms, up your crotch â€” someone is patting your 8-year-old down like he’s a criminal,â€ Mikey’s mother told the newspaper. â€œA terrorist can blow his underwear up and they don’t catch him. But my 8-year-old can’t walk through security without being frisked.â€
With a unique name like Michael Hicks, it’s a pretty safe bet that the TSA has the right guy. In fact, there are only 1,600 other people named Michael Hicks in this country – including young Mikey’s father, according to a national directory. Pretty cut and dried if you ask me.
I don’t know about you, but I’m sure glad we have psychics working for our government who are able to see into the future and know this kid will grow up to be the next Bin Laden. It just gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling all over. Kind of like a goodÂ pat-down.
