In effect it is completely possible they did not have the authority to authorize it...

The applications are interesting... A legal challenge might win in the supreme court.. Why has the ACLU not done it....

I could see a case being rigged for it

good call...

Which way would you think it would fail on unconstitutionality?

I was thinking along the same line. Just take off all your clothes. I've done it a few times, at the moment of enlightenment which indicated it's the only way to get any privacy. It's a mental trick, primarily. You simply realize the shame is on the other side. Just..take it all off, right there in line. What a statement. Why should I get cited for anything...is this not what they want?

Is that what you want? Come on Tony, blank me now...blank me now while you still have a chance!

Disobey. Now.

I have been kinda curious. What has the transportation authority done in the UK. Have they over-reacted and been stupid in applications.

It is th same for other countries. How has your country responded to americas TSA actions?

Also, for people who say they are cancelling their vacations to the states just because of a "gate rape", LOL!!!! You would seriously cancel a vacation over being patted down, or I mean raped in front of everyone? How much of a coward are you?


Educate yourself!

first I apologize for the quote thing but I have a lot of distractions around me as I type.... I try not to use it so I do regret using this method.

I refuse to give up my rights so others can feel secure. Its a genetic thing from my ancestors... 55 of them got together and decided that we have the right to be free from government agencies searching me

I cant form my own airport and provide the same service without the TSA telling my passengers, "We must grope you!"

If we could then your argument would be valid. You cant form your own altenative to it. The airlines would do it.. We are not a free market. We are a mixed market and hence free market ideals have to take the mixed part into account..




Also, for people who say they are cancelling their vacations to the states just because of a "gate rape", LOL!!!! You would seriously cancel a vacation over being patted down, or I mean raped in front of everyone? How much of a coward are you?


It is a rape of personhood... A very serious violation... mark my words their will be an issue of a 15 minus year old girl or boy felt up by the TSA...

in line how would you respond?

It is the serious side of this protest of their actions....

Now I don't know if this is true or not, but I have heard when you enter federally owned buildings you sacrifice your rights. I imagine that airports would be considered federal buildings. I'm not sure about this but this would explain how they are able to work.

Where on Earth did you hear that?

Also, airports are owned by whomever owns them and are not federal buildings. LAX is owned by the City of Los Angeles Department of Airports. JFK is owned by the Port Authority of New York-New Jersey. Dulles is jointly owned by Virginia, Maryland, the City of Washington and the United States.

TSOs don't have any authority to arrest anyone. They're not law enforcement officers. I suppose they could, hypothetically, make a citizen's arrest if they were so inclined but, generally, they can only request the local police (if you're at LAX, the LAPD; JFK, the Port Authority Police, etc.) arrest you. That's why a local police officer is always loitering around at the screening checkpoints when you go through. Not because he's bored and hanging out.

I thought I heard that at school one day, because someone asked why people could search you when you enter the courthouse.

zuul000 and ripcontrol Although I appreciate your enthusiasm, I'm pretty sure T&C might have a problem if not you may not like what you see. When the time comes I shall take pictures and then post the whole event for everyone with a large apology. As for the lawyer thing.Being a veteran of more than 100 protest since the age of 13, ranging from The WTO's to Marijuana Legalization March to a one woman protest of my city's mayor and his corrupt election, I have a lawyer on speed dial. He's actually a close personal family friend. Of the 19 times I've been arrested for protesting I have never been charged. I got this. one more thing I almost got my husband to rock the banana hammock with me.
