Scanning your body unwarranted is deemed illegal, and an infringement of the Fourth Amendment right. Suggesting that no one is forcing you to be
scanned would hold true, if a person was able to retreat, and leave the premises. Only problem is, if as a potential customer of any airlines, you
decide to NOT par take in any form of scan/pat down, you can't just leave the airport. You now get detained against your will, and questioned as if
you are a terrorist.
Case in point: Apparently, passengers do not have the right to leave the security area if they decline the new security procedures according to a
ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals:
"Requiring that a potential passenger be allowed to revoke consent to an ongoing airport security search makes little sense in a post-9/11 world. Such
a rule would afford terrorists multiple opportunities to attempt to penetrate airport security by 'electing not to fly' on the cusp of detection until
a vulnerable portal is found."
This statement from the very own TSA website, under the title [ Mission Of The External Compliance Division, Office Of Civil Rights And Liberties]
claims and I quote: To ensure that the civil rights and liberties of the traveling public are respected throughout screening processes, without
compromising security. The Division ensures that Agency processes and procedures do not discriminate against the traveling public, and abide by the
constitutional freedoms of the traveling public.
With the knowledge that they " claim " to embrace the peoples constitutional rights, infringing on the Fourth is permitted? How does that work?
Btw, you stated and I quote, " As soon as YOU get in line on YOUR OWN BEHALF, YOU have initiated the search process and are giving them permission to
scan you. "
With your above comment, are you seriously suggesting that people are " waiving " their rights? Are you serious? You actually believe that by
standing in a simple line, that gives them permission to violate your rights? You can't be that uneducated?
