Battle Cry of the Besieged Traveler: "You Touch My Junk, I'm Going To Have You Arrested!"

Friends, whatever happened to the Fourth Amendment? 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.

The wording crafted by the authors of one of the world's most marvelous documents seems pretty straight-forward to me. Where's the probable cause that mandates a government official's obligation to grope around a traveler's genitalia simply because they are opting to board a commercial airliner for a long distance trip? Everyone wants security and freedom from worry in travel in the wake of 9/11, but the latest policy initiatives implemented by the TSA are way over the top.

Here is the full video of Tyner's close encounter with the TSA.

Here's what Red State has to say about Government at Work:

We cannot be perceived to be singling out a certain group. We must, therefore, waste time and resources using terrorism countermeasures against, you know, NON-terrorists. And we are to pretend that 90-year-old grandmas from Nebraska flew planes into buildings on September 11th.
