35 Reasons the TSA Is Really The TNASubmitted by d4chin on Wed, 01/23/2013 - 05:18
Since it’s inception, the TSA has had its fair share of criticism. Alex Jones , Ron Paul , Rand Paul , Jesse Ventura , and many more, but the TSA has really come under fire since 2010.
After the November 2010 initiation of enhanced screening procedures of all airline passengers and flight crews, the US Airline Pilots Association issued a press release stating that pilots should not submit to Advanced Imaging Technology because of radiation risks and the strict pat down procedures being implemented by TSA agents. Pilots even went on to say that these procedures at times compromised their fitness for duty, because they felt that after receiving a TSA pat down (given their stressful nature) they had a hard time performing their duties. Upon making this statement release, two airline pilots went on to file suits against these invasive procedures. Additionally, retired police officer Robert Yamin criticized the TSA’s procedures by saying that the pat downs are “fake” and are not an effective way to search for contraband as they do not conform to proper search procedures.
A number of incidents that received to media attention served to create a public outcry against the rather invasive of the pat-down techniques employed by TSA agents. Especially those in which women’s breasts and genital areas of all passengers are patted down. Many questions have also been raised in regards to the constitutionality of the screening methods used by TSA. Organizations like the ACLU have been rather vocal about their opposition to the TSA and it’s attacks on the fourth amendment of our Constitution. As of April 2011, six lawsuits had been filed for violation of the Fourth Amendment. George Washington University law professor Jeffrey Rosen has been rather vocal about the TSA’s measures by saying “there’s a strong argument that the TSA’s measures violate the Fourth Amendment, which prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures.”.
