Fight Back Against Airport Scanners and Gropers!
If you traveled by air this summer vacation season, you probably experienced more than just the usual pre-flying jitters. Sheer anxiety afflicted many as they approached the security lines at airports, shoes in one hand, belts removed and their other hand clutching their clothes as they awaited their fate -- metal detector, pat-down line, or full body scanner, or even all three. The abuses committed by TSA agents are well known and would fill volumes -- from groping toddlers, the elderly and the terminally ill, to stealing, and of course, the routine trashing of Fourth Amendment rights, all the while real terrorists and suspicious characters slip through without a second glance. Everyone from congressmen to movie stars, beauty queens, and common folk are complaining and rightfully so, about the horrors of being “screened” for travel.
