“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.”
That is a constitutional right for U.S. Citizens because of the 4th Amendment to our constitution.
TSA’s policies of searching everyone boarding a plane have been annoying and silly because they don’t actually make us any safer. In the latest round of foolishness they want to expose a lot of people to a much more thorough scan that may not be safe (no one really knows the long term effects) and it is certainly an unreasonable invasion of privacy that still makes us…. absolutely no safer. That makes it unreasonable…. and therefor violation or our rights.
Their attempt to go after John Tyner because he elected NOT TO FLY rather than put up with the unreasonable search is clearly a step too far, and for that, they need to be put down publicly and firmly. If an airline refuses to let you fly unless you submit to search that is one thing, but to go after someone who decided not to fly after all is pure spite and a clear over-stepping of bounds.
We should all be outraged.
