Granted, people should be more careful, especially when they have
small children in a home with birds. But apparently you don't
understand proper wing clipping. A PROPER wing clip does not
prevent a bird from flying, especially a Cockatiel. It should
only prevent them from gaining altitude. To clip a bird beyond
that point is dangerous. Any bird with a proper clip can get
away when there is the right combination of adrenaline caused by
being scared of suddenly being outdoors and a proper gust of
wind. Maybe you should do more research before commenting on
proper bird care.
