Some disabled people have conditions where they just can’t give a fingerprint or go through an X-ray machine without the help of a wheelchair. Like many cripples that are put on the street by mafia to collect donations, it seems like disabled people could be exploited by a group that wanted to cause harm on an airplane or in an airport.

I did find this overview for disabled people:

It doesn’t address deaf people. How are they supposed to answer questions? There are sometimes translators for people from other countries, but how can they really be sure that deaf person is OK?

Of course, all the above assumes that airport security actually do make airports more secure, which is not necessarily the case.
