Moral Panic

American Airlines Reportedly Accused a Black Social Worker of Kidnapping the White Child In Her Care. Now She's Suing.

Never mind the court order showing the child as a dependent in her care.

|

A passenger is suing American Airlines after flight attendants accused her of kidnapping a 1-year-old child in her care. The California woman, Shannon Murphy—a black social worker with the Riverside County's Children's Services Division—was bringing a white male child to Arkansas for a court-ordered visit with the kid's biological father.

On Murphy's flight back to California, an American Airlines flight attendant approached her to say that another passenger had accused her of abducting the child she was traveling with, according to a lawsuit Murphy filed against the company in Los Angeles County's Superior Court on June 18. Specifically, the person alleged that the blonde-haired toddler Murphy was traveling with was a five-year-old, black-haired Hispanic child who had gone missing from New York City.

According to the lawsuit, the airline staff made no attempt to corroborate, fact-check, or analyze the credibility of this claim before approaching Murphy. Nor would they check her identification, the child's birth certificate, or a court order from Los Angeles explaining the circumstances. Rather, a flight attendant "explicitly demanded and implicitly threaten[ed]…that if she did not come with her physical force would be used to make [Murphy] comply," the suit says. "The one year old Caucasian male dependent was then physically taken" from Murphy and they were detained for "approximately an hour" before being allowed to re-board the held plane.

The suit alleges that they were detained "unlawfully and without probable cause" and that "the acts and actions of [American Airlines] and its agents and security personnel were intentional, willful and maliciously done to injure and oppress Plaintiff and her court appointed ward," causing Murphy "physical and emotional injury." It accuses American Airlines of false imprisonment, negligence, and violating Murphy's civil rights.

Sadly, this far from the first time airline staff have mistaken a multi-racial group of travelers for something sordid and criminal. (See here, here, or here for a few examples.) It is not unusual for interracial couples or parents of adopted or biracial children being questioned and detained at airports over spurious accusations of abduction and "human trafficking."

This comes alongside state and federal training mandates that tell flight attendants and airport staff that people frequently use commercial flights to traffic women and children for sex (despite no documented evidence of any such thing) and that only vigilant bystanders can thwart these throngs of brazen evildoers.

With the help of Homeland Security and nonprofit groups like the McCain Institute—whose board chair, Cindy McCain, bragged about pointlessly calling the cops on a woman at the airport who was "a different ethnicity" than her child—and Airline Ambassadors International, airline and airport employees are taught to spot a litany of vague and dubious indicators, under the recycled War on Terror mantra of "see something, say something."

Essentially, the feds are using apocryphal human-trafficking horror stories to encourage people to serve as nervous citizen-spies acting on their biased suspicions.

Obviously, individual employees and corporate policies deserve part of the blame here. (American Airlines is also facing a lawsuit from two black male passengers over alleged racial bias and another from a woman who says a flight attendant assaulted her.) But their actions aren't happening in a vacuum. They're happening in the context of a decades-long campaign to conflate sex work and sex trafficking, and a moral panic over the false idea that forced prostitution, especially of children, is widespread.

    Some passenger needs to spend some time in the pillory, and some flight attendant needs to join them.

      1. STOP WITH THE SPAM

    2. How do you get there from the article? According to the lawsuit, the airline people took a ridiculous claim that one child was a completely different looking child that was missing, and then declined to look at documents that would have proved that accusation groundless. Racism may have played a part, but the basis of the cvomlain it that the airline people were STUPID.

    3. This is a bizarre comment. You realize that people of different races have relationships and travel together, right?

  4. Didn’t the McCains adopt children of a different race? Wasn’t this the focus of the imaginary Karl Rove phone calls in South Carolina?

  5. Meh. If you are in a plane you are already being detained by the airline.

    It’s not reasonable to expect a flight attendant to validate a court document.

    1. It is reasonable to expect a flight attendant to have some common sense.

      1. Especially 5-years vs 1-year old.

        1. I don’t think a 5 year old should be a flight attendant.

          1. But they weigh less.

          2. “Welcome aboard Epstein Airways, better known as the Lolita Express . . .”

      2. Nope. She escalated this to someone authorized to sort it out.

        Social worker failed to engage her emotional intelligence.

        Shit got real.

        1. It should not have taken an hour to sort it out – especially when nothing in the description of the allegedly kidnapped child matched this child. If the flight attendants are too stupid to even check that, a higher-level official should board the plane and do a reality check before removing a passenger.

    2. It is unreasonable to expect to have to have a court document verified solely because you’re traveling with a child.

  6. “…employees are taught to spot a litany of vague and dubious indicators, under the recycled War on Terror mantra of “see something, say something.”

    Building a nation of Karens, one step at a time.

    1. More like huge steps. Something about “never waste a crisis”?

  7. My guess was the lady got in the flight attendants face for asking a question. And if she worked for county government CPS then she was likely a complete bitch. I recall many articles here when Reason was actually anti-government and pro-business that discussed how bad most CPS departments were. But no more, now it’s all hard left from the pro hooker crowd.

    1. “My guess was the lady got in the flight attendants face for asking a question.”

      My guess is you’re a racist asshole who loves to blame victims you find unsympathetic due to your bigotry.

      Anyone who gets treated like a criminal or questioned / accused for doing nothing more than existing has every fucking right to get in the face of/mad at the idiot harassing them. She didn’t owe niceness or respect to anyone falsely accusing her of anything.

      I don’t understand the boot licking mentality here. People SHOULD NOT be expected to tolerate or react gracefully to someone making false accusations. The flight attendant isnt the victim here…the poor lady doing her fucking job is the victim. She gets to be as nasty as she wants to any asshole who wrongly accuses her of amnything

      1. No she doesn’t.

        1. Yes, she does – if someone accuses me of something that I am not even remotely involved in, I will give them a reason to level a more legitimate accusation – might as well give them something they want.

          Fucking bootlicking pussy.

      2. Nothing racist about questioning the narrative, especially as the ones that most often have this occur to them are white parents (and sometimes Asian parents) with black or Hispanic kids. See the examples posted in the story.

      3. My wife’s uncle is married to a black woman and they have a child together. The child is definitely much darker than his father. When he was younger my wife’s uncle dealt with this all the time when they travelled together without his wife (and at least one time someone questioned if both were being abducted by him or held against their will). He remained calm, at first, did not get angry unless the ones questioning kept pushing it.

        1. Also my wife’s beat friend is blond and blue eyes but has a child with an American Indian and has similar experiences (despite the fact we live adjacent to a reservation and there are lots of interracial couples). As had my cousin who is part American Indian but mostly white and looks it, who also has a child with another American Indian.

          1. Does your wife know Allen Ginsberg?

            1. Not sure what the reference is too.

                1. Well it’s a reference to my typo? Not Alan Ginsberg’s membership in NAMBLA?

                  1. Correct. Most famous beat poet…..”my beat friend”…..that’s all I was going for there. But nothing ruins a joke like explaining it.

    2. Racists like you should read a different website that confirms your bigotry. Have you tried Storm front?

  8. Never mind the court order showing the child as a dependent in her care.

    Well, how was the airline supposed to know it was a real order? IF IT SAVES ONE LIFE!!11!! But hey – at least Black adults accompanying minors are treated the same way as White ones. That’s gotta be a step forward, right? Right!?

    Seriously though – we seem to have peaked in 2000 regarding ‘racial harmony’ in this country. In the 1990’s no one would have looked twice at a mixed race family. Now the assumption is that you *must* be the stupidest sex trafficker in the world because *of course* adults of one race do not have any relationships with children of another.

    1. And how did Theater Security Asshats let her through the line?

  9. The suit alleges that they were detained “unlawfully and without probable cause” and that “the acts and actions of [American Airlines] and its agents and security personnel were intentional, willful and maliciously done to injure and oppress Plaintiff and her court appointed ward,” causing Murphy “physical and emotional injury.” It accuses American Airlines of false imprisonment, negligence, and violating Murphy’s civil rights.

    I am fucking stunned beyond words. A CPS employee complaining about the high-handed way she was treated over a kid that isn’t even hers? Are you fucking kidding me? If that isn’t the pot calling the kettle black. Fuck that bitch, she almost certainly was kidnapping that kid one way or the other.

    1. ” Fuck that bitch, she almost certainly was kidnapping that kid one way or the other.”

      From the article you illiterate piece of trash :
      “was bringing a white male child to Arkansas for a court-ordered visit with the kid’s biological father.”

      There is so much stupid in the comments section it hurts to read it.

      1. Are you new?

        1. His contributions are hardly intellectually any more honest than those he is complaining about. And rarely are yours. His complaint seems to be that people don’t see the world according to how he sees it.

      2. Time for ChicagoTom to go back to his twitter hugbox.

  10. there are no depths American Airlines will not aim for to upset a flyer.

  11. “The suit alleges that they were detained “unlawfully and without probable cause” and that “the acts and actions of [American Airlines] and its agents and security personnel were intentional, willful and maliciously done to injure and oppress Plaintiff and her court appointed ward”

    I don’t understand why an allegation of kidnapping isn’t probable cause of why the airlines shouldn’t investigate allegations of kidnapping.

    I suspect we’re reading this story as a function of ENB’s obsessions with human trafficking hoaxes related to her support for legalized prostitution.

    1. Ken Shultz has kidnapped my niece!

      1. There you go Ken, now you won’t mind when the police come over, right? You’ll extend to them every courtesy while they investigate this kidnapping allegation, right? Perfectly reasonable, right?

        1. As long as they wear masks, stay six feet or more away, and do not violate firearm restrictions – – – – – – – –

      2. If you accuse me of kidnapping your niece, I expect the police to come and check it out.

        And If I wanted to sue somebody for making a false accusation, it wouldn’t be the airline–that didn’t make the allegation.

        1. Really? Would you expect the police to demand to search your house because some random dude on the other side of the country said so? Provide alibis? Release your cell-phone location data and provide some receipts matching the locations it reports?

          And the airline is responsible for the conduct of its employees in employment related actions.

          1. We only have one side of the story. Without knowing both sides, it is difficult to draw a conclusion.

    2. “I don’t understand why an allegation of kidnapping isn’t probable cause of why the airlines shouldn’t investigate allegations of kidnapping.”

      Because any fucking rando can make any accusation they want. We should not treat every accusation as if it’s correct or true by default, there is a duty to do some basic due diligence. And you especially don’t detain people without any evidence or proof. An accusation isnt either of those things

      It’s no different than SWATing. Just because some rando calls the cops and claims a hostage situation is happening doesn’t mean police should be sending in the SWAT team with guns blazing and then only seeing if anything untoward is going on after the fact.

      They should go and verify the claim AND THEN deploy the swat team if the claim is legit

      1. Notice your last paragraph is basically investigating the accusation, which is all Ken said. He said nothing about SWAT teams.

      2. “It’s no different than SWATing.

        . . .

        They should go and verify the claim AND THEN deploy the swat team if the claim is legit

        No, when someone calls in that there’s an emergency situation that would typically require a SWAT team, the SWAT team should show up rather than wait for independent verification that an emergency situation is underway.

        And we’re talking about a kidnapping allegation–on an airplane.

        1. But some form of recon should be done before they bust down the door and start shooting.

      3. We should not treat every accusation as if it’s correct or true by default,

  12. Who the fuck cares?

    Interesting that this is the airline story they went with.
    The video of the 3 Philly women beating the shit out of a Spirit airlines employee in the Fort Lauderdale Airport is much more entertaining.
    Oh, but that one doesn’t perpetuate “white supremacist Amerikka” bs that Reason is so committed to…

    1. I don’t think every story about a violation of rights or procedure where there’s a racial component needs a what-about counterpoint.

      However… having said that…

      American Airlines Reportedly Accused a Black Social Worker of Kidnapping the White Child In Her Care.

      A passenger is suing American Airlines after flight attendants accused her of kidnapping a 1-year-old child in her care. The California woman, Shannon Murphy—a black social worker with the Riverside County’s Children’s Services Division—was bringing a white male child to Arkansas for a court-ordered visit with the kid’s biological father.

      It seems that this technique is taught in first-year journalism school. If we’re going to make everything about race, then we need to make everything about race. But the fact that we filter, pick, choose, edit, cull and curate stories very carefully where the perpetrator is white and the victim is black, and begin the story with these descriptors, then I think it’s fair to criticize the quality of the journalism. For instance, this whole story could have been written without indicating race, except when reporting the claims of the social worker. If the social worker claims it was racial, then the reporter should certainly report that. But when you say “White [aggressor attacked] Black Victim”, you’re setting the tone of the story from the outset, and if we’re going to play that game, then we should also see “Black [aggressor attacked] White Victim”. If you claim the latter isn’t relevant, but magically relevant in the former, then you are guilty of perpetuating a racial narrative where one may not exist.

    2. The video doesn’t have anything to do with a libertarian matter.

      I did see the video you’re talking about, though. You can take the crazy bitch out of Philly, but…

    3. ” Oh, but that one doesn’t perpetuate “white supremacist Amerikka” bs that Reason is so committed to…”

      1. The only reason why someone even said something is because the parent and child werent the same race and they found that suspicious — that IS inherently racist.

      2. People are much more likely to report something suspicious about a black adult with a white child than a white adult with a black child. That’s due to the white supremacist attitude in this country

      Only racists wont acknowledge these things

      1. No they aren’t. If you clicked on the three links she provided for other cases, two were white father’s with different race children and one was an Asian father.

      2. 1. The only reason why someone even said something is because the parent and child werent the same race and they found that suspicious — that IS inherently racist.

        That is an allegation. It’s probably safe to assume that, but it’s still an assumption not based on revealed facts.

        2. People are much more likely to report something suspicious about a black adult with a white child than a white adult with a black child.

        Do you have any hard evidence of that?

        That’s due to the white supremacist attitude in this country

        Ok then.

        Only racists wont acknowledge these things

        Oh shit, it’s a troll post. My bad.

        1. And considering that these cases happen to whites frequently as well the racism isn’t directed at one race but rather an underlying assumption that children must look like their parents. My wife’s uncle, her best friend and my cousin have all experienced similar incidents and two are white and one is white and American Indian (my aunt, her mom also had a similar experience when she took her grandson to her daughter’s his mom’s basic training graduation).

      3. 1. The only reason why someone even said something is because the parent and child werent the same race and they found that suspicious — that IS inherently racist.

        Racism is knowing how babies are made.

    4. Nardz here to answer the (unasked) question: Yes, but how are white people the true victims here?

      1. In a very large number of similar cases the parents were white. Buy you are ignoring that in your implication that Nardz is a racist because he disagrees with you.

      2. Also, Nardz is making the point, and has been for awhile, that Reason focuses on any perceived slight against blacks or BLM protestors while often ignoring the stories of whites being assaulted. He is pointing out that the reporting is one sided. Reason didn’t report on the white mother who was killed for saying All Lives Matter last week, but we got a story about unverified reports DHS is scooping up people at random in Portland today.

      3. You forgot to activate your “White Knight” nickname for your comment.

    5. So if someone runs a story about this, they’re obligated to cover every controversial incident involving airlines? That’s like attacking the author of an article on the Holocaust for not also writing one about the Armenian genocide. Obviously way different degree but the same principle.

  13. The American Association of Black Social Workers actually has the official stance that children should only be placed in homes of the same race. Maybe the flight attendants knew that and were only trying to reinforce the AABSW policy.

    1. Why isn’t that policy racist?

      1. Because its 2020 and we live in clown world.

        1. It’s time for truth the barker said and poured his self a beer
          Oh yeah forsooth said Ben the Geek but who’ll be left to hear
          They’ve driven off the fools and saints and now they’ve stole the show
          It’s all a bloody circus mates and clowns are in control.
          If that’s the truth said Marzipan the Midget from the floor
          I know there won’t be no demand for Midgets anymore
          We used to be a novelty by simply being small
          But next to them unholy men now Tiny Tim looks tall.
          And it’s harder to matter at all when it’s all comin’ down
          (And it’s all comin’ down)
          You’ve still got your duty to choose how you live or you die
          (That’s just the way it is)
          So many warnings to turn this old rascal around
          We better heed ’em while we got the freedom to try.

          From the philosopher and poet Kris Kristofferson

      2. Because equity != equality. Someone hasn’t been reading their SJW agrippa.

    2. Well, there is no American Association of Black Social Workers.
      There is a National Association of Black Social Workers, and yes they have a position paper that advocates against transracial adoptions. It was written in 1972. It sounds exactly what you might expect a bunch of 1970’s Black Power radicals to write. They also have a more recent position paper on Kinship Care which gives a broader interpretation of family than what their 1972 paper suggests. It says:

      It is also important that the definition of family in public policies be expanded to include the full range of blood relatives (such as all cousins, regardless of degree). This new definition should also include extended family members who are non-relatives or fictive kin (such as cohabiting spouses, godparents, close friends, neighbors, etc) , who are willing to serve as co-guardians, successor guardians or stand-by guardians in the event
      that the current caregiver is no longer able to care for the children. Family and kinship should be defined by the family systems, culture and experiences. Systems need to be inclusive of the diverse cultural structures accepted in the African American community.

      You can read it for yourself here if you want.

      https://www.nabsw.org/page/PositionStatements

      1. It sounds exactly what you might expect a bunch of 1970’s Black Power radicals to write.

        Which sounds remarkably like what polite society now sounds like in 2020.

      2. And the difference between 1970s black power zealots and the 2020’s black power zealots is what?

        1. The 1970’s chicks were skinny with afros. The 2020’s are fat and bald.

          1. There’s a striking similarity between the power movement of the 70s and the victimhood movement of today: the activists are extremely light skinned. Anyone notice that?

      3. Doesn’t matter. You’ve shown that the NABSW’s held a bad position once in their history so they need to be dismantled. Not cancelled, of course, because that’s a fiction told by the alt-right to gaslight you.

        Also, your second example is basically ‘put them in with parents of the same race – just with extra steps’.

        1. Well that second statement doesn’t say anything explicit about “no black babies with white parents”. Maybe that’s what they meant, but that isn’t what they said.

          1. No but several Indian tribes have argued that. Not pertinent to this point/case but it does show a certain mindset. Of course they defend it by something that occurred generations ago and defending their cultural heritage.

          2. We almost didn’t get Diff’rent Strokes.

    3. They’re into all the hilarious Kangz shit.

  14. My wife is Filipina, with all the physical characteristics that that entails. Our granddaughter is so white/fair-skinned that she would make chalk jealous. Plus, she has brilliant red hair. The only thing about her that resembles her grandmother is their shared brown eyes.

    There has been more than a few times over the years when people were confused over their relationship when they were out together by themselves, especially when the apo (grandchild) was young. Fortunately it never reached a point where authorities had to get involved.

  15. Estimated number of Karens working as flight attendants?

    1. The same number as the ones who insist on flight attendant instead of stewardess.

      Do the really attend the flight, and not the passengers?
      (I haven’t flown since the US Constitution was repealed in airports on 9/12)

  16. Private company yada yada.

    Remember the mass exodus of weirdos who spent all day in the comments was because Reason refused to cover a “local story.”

  17. Never mind the total fucked up stupidity of this incident, but we have (and pay for) state-run child delivery services?

  18. “Never mind the total fucked up stupidity of this incident, but we have (and pay for) state-run child delivery services? ”

    Why would you assume that? Wouldn’t it be likely that the costs with transporting the child for the agreed upon visits are covered by the divorced couple? I doubt the state would eat that cost.

    1. Depends on the state. Calls for evidence not provided.

    2. If a social worker is coming along – then no, the bill isn’t being picked up by the parents as it would be a state-mandated thing.

      That’s the only way you’re getting a government-worker escort.

    3. Hold on ChicagoTom, are you actually trying to insinuate that the government rents out its social workers to divorcees?

      Just how fucking dumb are you?

  19. Doesn’t carrying a court order imply that the courts are expecting the carrier to be challenged on occasion? If challenges are not rare , then why would the agent get so bent out of shape at being questioned?

  20. I’m gonna have to call shenanigans on this one. Are Airlines by law required to report whenever an accusation is made? If not is it AA policy? All they did was make the report and the authorities met them on the ground and they did the “detaining”. My guess is someone wants to get paid and the local authorities don’t have the same bank as the airline. You have to read Stossel’s first book “Give me a Break” it has opened my eyes to consumer reporting. Whenever I read a story like this I think who is making the claim and how much do they and their lawyers stand to get paid?

  21. Yes. Reporting this is bad. It is implied by many (Chicago Tom and DoL) that is because she is black. What isn’t reported is were the stewardess required by law or policy to make these reports? And we know that this happens to white and Asian parents (it is even in the linked stories). The criticism should be of the policy and maybe how the situation was handled. Buy some has to turn this into a white supremacists thing to satisfy their preconceptions. Also, as Creech pointed out carrying the court orders (which should have ended any further questioning other than verifying the authenticity of the order) implies that the authorities have predicted that such a situation may arise. I wonder how the social workers are taught to deal with this? We don’t know enough to fully understand the situation. It looks bad from this story but there remains questions. And based upon ENBs reporting on the tiots… Err I mean “peaceful protests in Portland” you have to wonder if she is again leaving out vital information to further a narrative.

  22. Lots and lots of quotes in this article. I have to presume the source of virtually every one was a lawyer or team of lawyers working on behalf of a party on a lawsuit against a large corporation. So, as a person who attempts to read stories with some critical reasoning, what is to be surmised here?
    Now, it might be true that several trained professionals working for a large company would act in a reckless and arguably racist manner in front of at least a dozen or so customers would ignore numerous pieces of evidence offered by a passenger in order to placate some unnamed individual that made accusations that were, on their face, absurd. But if this indeed happened, it would be so shocking and counter to most people’s experiences (and no, a snotty stewardess on an overbooked flight doesn’t count as similar) and would seem counter to how even the most overbearing martinet acting in their own interests might act, that it would strain belief.
    On the other side is the possibility that something akin to the following took place: a flight attendant was asked by a paranoid passenger to check out some suspicion on their part that and adult and unrelated child were acting suspiciously. No matter how ludicrous the accusation may have seemed to the attendant, they may well have felt bound to at least question the passenger as uncomfortable as it likely was. Being questioned in such a situation, especially if the social worker had noticed some uncomfortable stares from strangers while performing what may be a difficult job, it seems within the normal range of human reaction that the social worker got her back up. At this point it seems more likely that it was the accused who felt themselves the aggrieved party and may have been less than cooperative. Was there really a court order shown to the attendant who then made the choice to ignore it and proceed to disrupt the operation of the flight?
    Or perhaps there was a series of angry accusations that were parlayed into a possibly lucrative lawsuit? Now THAT is something that, given human behavior makes sense. Of course, the whole story is just that. A story. But one of many in what passes for journalism that seem to have as their original source some tort or personal liability lawyer offering a reporter a story to fit their narrative.

    1. Also, it was the authorities who detained the social worker, not the airline, after it landed. Did the stewardess simply state, after looking at the court order, that that is up to the authorities to decide? Was she following either federal law or company policy? Yes it is quite possible, nee probable that both parties may have overreacted. We definitely only have one side. You can’t tell me someone didn’t record this on their camera in this day and age if it actually went down like the social worker states it did.

  23. “court-ordered visit with the kid’s biological father.”

    See? She wasnt a kidnapper at all. More like the kidnapper’s henchman who allows the parent with the ransom money to see the child from a safe distance to make sure he/she is alive before the trade happens

  24. Who was this “other passenger”, and where did they seemingly disappear to strike me as interesting questions. That said, it strikes me that the airline should be prepared to write the offended party a check, likely a substantial check.

    1. Why? numerous positions have been designated with a “duty to report” and I can see the airline as a whole being under similar obligations so nothing here seems too far out of line once you remove the bias from the source. Is the airline required to investigate kidnapping reports? no despite what the suit alleges, but they did pass it on to those who are supposed to do so.

      Bitch is just aggrieved that somebody dared question her and is looking for a paycheck.

  25. File under “Important If True.”

  26. The suit alleges that they were detained “unlawfully and without probable cause” and that “the acts and actions of [American Airlines] and its agents and security personnel were intentional, willful and maliciously done to injure and oppress Plaintiff and her court appointed ward,”

    American Airlines doesn’t need “probable cause”; they are not the police. And to assert that their motivation was to “injure and oppress plaintiff” is ludicrous; AA wanted to avoid the (slight) risk of being accused of taking a reported possible child abduction lightly. Airlines detain and question people over much less all the time.
