Security or Unreasonable Search? Stop Treating Americans Like Suspected Terrorists

23 Nov

This is to follow on Rebel Mom’s post earlier.

Here’s an idea, if their is a general group of people who are a threat to safety and security why don’t we focus on that group. If they are an internal group law enforcement should keep a keen eye on that group. If  they are from another country or even many countries that is fine to keep them all out of the US to keep our families safe especially from the Federal Government.

To have our families and children molested like this in the name of freedom of travel is disgraceful.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Catholic Online) – There’ve been many disconcerting stories from folks who’ve been subjected to the TSA‘s new security procedures at airports around the country. Three that most clearly illustrate the insanity and stupidity of these new screenings are the breast cancer survivor who was forced to remove her prosthesis from her bra and show it to the TSA agent; the image of a little boy standing shirtless near the metal detector as a grown man touches every inch of his half-naked little body; the bladder cancer survivor in Detroit who was left soaked in his own urine after agents broke the seal on his urostomy bag even though he begged them to be careful.

This is security?!? Have we lost our collective minds? Humiliation, undressing and groping are now the tools of counter-terrorism?

There is an uproar across the nation, but will it be enough? We’re on the cusp on having these “procedures” cemented into permanent existence if we don’t halt this gross violation of rights.

 I’m among those who think this is a 4th Amendment issue.”The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated.”

    My greatest fear is that our outrage will not be enough to change these abuses. I firmly belive, however, that money talks and if people will stop subjecting themselves and their children to this tyranny and stop traveling by air until the TSA is restrained that the financial impact will force airlines to turn to private security that will be held accountable for these abuses.

    They may not respect our Constitutional rights, but they respect their bottom line. We must win this before it is too late and the government literally owns us.
