Honestly speaking, I cant see this argument going anywhere. The terms to fly is you must submit to the security in place. Since TSA is not operating
under the color of law, they carry different authority, as well as requirements, than what law enforcement has (they have more authority than we do at
He does not have to subject to the pat down / frisk / search. The tradeoff on that is he wont be allowed to fly. Even if we remove all security
checkspoints and let whomever have access, you still run into the same thing.
The moment you make it to the airplane entrance, you can be refused boarding. Its a private business, and the airplanes themselves are also private
property, with the Captain having ultimate authority over that domain.
The constitution gaurantees freedom of movement, within a state border as well as across a state boarder. What it does not do is guarantee the method
of travel. The options exist to fly, drive, call a cab, by a bus ticket, ride a bike, or even use shoe leather express.

The question is, what can be done to improve or replace the patdowns? I know we all complain about it, but what is the solution?
