TSA: Would you prefer naked x-ray photography or physical molestation?

Alright, this is out of control.

No one should have to submit to the health risks of an x-ray, nor naked photos, nor physical groping just to travel in this country.

This has gone beyond nuisance level into violation. This is no longer security theater. When we're sexually assaulting children in the name of protecting our country from terrorists, we've lost sight of what's really important.

Check out this description of what this woman, her 8 year-old and her 20 month-old went through at the airport after opting out of the scanner to avoid unnecessary radiation. Skip to 4 minutes 20 seconds into the video to hear the mother's account of her recent experience:

Right now, I'm really sad I have plane tickets for January. I have serious doubts that this will be resolved in the next 60 days. I have to believe the ACLU will file suit shortly. If they do what this woman describes to me, then I'll surely report it to the ACLU. I know they assume that the short little lady will be compliant, so I usually get picked for additional searches, but if some TSA dude grabs my crotch, it will be all I can do not to grab him right back and see how he likes it.

Hello, Fourth Amendment, this is your citizens calling. We need you.
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.


  • There have been a lot of articles on this topic from a variety of sources, so I don't want to completely discount it, but I do want to point out that the video you posted is from Alex Jones, who happily pushes 9/11 conspiracies and like stuff. So he is not a particularly accurate source for factual or eyewitness accounts. I would recommend looking for corroboration from other sources.
