I have a question, which I don't have time to look into it myself (Hence the Gen post).
Two people get into a street fight outside of a bar witnessed by an officer of the law. Both can be charged for assault whether or not they wish to press charges on each other.
(Taken from the word of someone familiar)
Boxing, of course is commissioned and regulated. People are allowed to engage in physical fights with each other under strict conditions that are set out by the state. In other words,the act, but it's legal.
Here is where the TSA comes in.
Often the searches they preform come up as topics in the forum. Some people argue that their searches are unconstitutional and others say that because air travel is done through businesses, you are under contract with those businesses to submit to their security protocols.
Given the boxing example, that point is null.
So my questions (If the above statements are true)
Are the searches by the TSA constitutional and (if not) who decided unreasonable search and seizure was okay in this case? Where is the oversight?

What you should really be researching is whether or not the constitution is worth the parchment it's scribbled on.
Everything I've read over the last 5-10 years suggests that the constitution is consulted about as often as the TV Guide when making law in this country.
