A woman claims an airport security agent refused to let her disabled sister on board a plane because she couldn’t say her own name.Wheel-chair bound and unable to speak or write. Kinda unsurprising that she wouldn’t have a current driver’s license, isn’t it? And it’s generally known – even to people of the meanest intelligence –that stroke victims frequently suffer from impaired speech. Sounds like another bully with a badge.
Sherry Wright says she was shocked at the treatment they received at Los Angeles International Airport, where her sister Heidi was due to fly to Phoenix.
The problems began when Heidi, who was left wheelchair-bound and unable to speak or write after a stroke a decade ago, was stopped by the Transportation Security Administration due to an expired driver’s license, CNN reported.
