Regarding the TSA Invasion of Privacy

The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

Clearly, the TSA is violating the Fourth Amendment. Kind of hard to argue with that.

Good article over at Bayou Renaissance Man.

ADDENDUM: I HAVE AN IDEA! Maybe we could require the TSA scanner people to work naked, so we have an even playing field. And for every touch they give you, you get to give the same touch back! I bet they’d be far less enthusiastic after being groped by 500 people a day. Ha!

      Hi, TexanNewYorker;

      Yeah, I saw that yesterday. I didn’t use it because those particular pictures are not from the TSA. However, the logic is the same – breaking of trust, and violating the fourth amendment.

      Have a nice day!
