Our fear has gone way too far

I received a request from these boys' mother to share photos of her sons being treated like suspects in a dangerous crime. Of course, this happened at the airport (there are more if you click through to the link):

The boys are 15 and 16 years old, respectively. They did not want their mother to make a scene, but she refused to let them get irradiated in a scanner and compromised by requesting a private screening and snapping photos of the process. She tells me she is infuriated when she looks at the pictures - as well she should be!
