Could this officer pictured in this short video legally grope his own son in this manner – were there some safe, effective alternative like a wand (so much for the innocuous sounding judicial words “over outer clothing”)? You can also find an object as big as a gun pressing an object instead of your hand.
Why may a TSA employee grope all over your son in the same manner without even any individual cause? Could we constitutionally force 24 million Americans drivers a year to insert a sobriety meter into their mouth (better than genitally groped!) even if that would save 600 lives on the highways, the passenger load of two 747s? And we may be losing 50 lives a month on the highways over people avoiding too much to take airport groping and naked scanning.
Underwear bombers (least dangerous by volume anyway) will certainly try something else. Terrorists already on American soil favor giant truck type bombs – much more satisfying to their mania than a few ounces of explosive maybe only blowing out a window.
Could this remote viewer (at 45 seconds) legally watch his own pubescent daughter’s naked scan -- just to be playful at the repair office? Could we constitutionally put 800 million American drivers a year through naked scanning to save 600 lives on the highway (no practical example)?
And why does security grope every square inch of your body if the scanner spot something in one pocket (take it out; go back through)? Even in the widely reported Castle Rock courthouse (should be horror) story (is no one shocked?) – where the pictured remote viewer also has a TV monitor possibly to view folks to be scanned (is he watching old movies?) and where male officers apparently frisk female visitors intimately every day – the male court officer may have only fingered over the left rear pocket of the mother with two small boys to discover the paper backing of a sticker. http://www.ajc.com/news/nation-world/full-body-scanners-popping-752566.html
The official TSA rule is, once a woman enters the security zone she may not leave without being frisked even if only male agents are available (continuing occurrence at small airports): $11,000 fine. They won't actually do that (hopefully). They will actually force her to choose between being grossly violated or not getting on the plane. This is the equivalent of taking a violent beating or not getting on the plane – not a legitimate choice.
We never got flying cars. We did get flying buses. Genitally groping tens of millions of Americans every year and strip searching three quarters of a billion to protect two buses – which probably won't be attacked anyway; if so will now be attacked some other way – turns the Fourth Amendment into toilet paper.
Could these police officers legally frisk their minor daughters --- whom they presumably have dominion over -- for the sake of literally millions-to-one danger (see eighth-grade math, next paragraph) – or to make a reasonable/probable cause search if a 5 minute ride (or much longer) could reach a female searcher?
If 10% more police officers got killed every year transporting rear cuffed, strapped down behind a locked cage females fingering for every last tiny taped on razor blade, etc, – that would be 7 more out of 700,000 male LEOs. Tell your daughter you may finger grope her legs and in between and the bottom of her breasts because this one chance 100,000 she might hurt you – or don't tell mine. Couldn’t hurt you hermetically sealed in into cage in any way. Still frightened; bring a wand to work.
Somewhere along the line American law enforcement across the board – not just the TSA – has developed a "doctrine of indifference" to the worst from of personal intrusion, unwelcome groping of females by males – and now at the TSA all day unwanted groping of males by gay acting males*. The interests of the state are not being balanced against popping open a glove compartment here. If it's a sick crime on the bus it's a sicker crime on the job where law enforcement itself is compelling you without the most compelling immediate danger. Until untamed government groping is cleaned out at every level, state and federal, I for one will not feel like a free American again. * http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkRPS0pSScQ
LATE LEGAL EQUATION: EVERYBODY SHOULD AGREE THAT IF A POLICE OFFICER PULLED A CAR OVER TO SEARCH WITHOUT REAL JUSTIFICATION, JUST OUT OF BOREDOM (EVERYONE MAY HAVE DONE IT) THAT IF HE FRISKS A WOMAN LIKE A MAN HE IS BREAKING THE SAME FELONY LAW THAT ANYONE ELSE WOULD BE BREAKING FRISKING HER -- EVEN THOUGH IS PLAINLY JUST PLAYING COP, NOT COPPING A FEEL. DITTO FOR ANY MALE FRISKING A FEMALE WITHOUT A GENUINELY COMPELLING MOTIVE --- NOT JUST PIPE "OFFICER SAFETY" WHEN THERE ISN'T A CHANCE A MILLION (SEE ABOVE) THAT HE WILL BE HARMED BRINGING HER TO THE POLICE STATION FOR A FEMALE TO FINISH THE JOB FRISKING LEGS AND LIFTING BREASTS. DITTO FOR TERRY STOPS. GUNS CAN BE DISCOVERED WITHOUT EVEN USING HANDS -- PROBABLE TAPED ON RAZOR BLADES MAY BE CHECKED FOR AT THE STATION. I DON'T SEE HOW ANYONE CAN ARGUE WITH THIS.
WE ARE NOT TALKING ILLEGALLY POPPING OPEN A GLOVE COMPARTMENT, CONSTITUTIONAL PRIVACY -- WE ARE TALKING A MAN GROPING A WOMAN'S SEXUAL AREAS WITHOUT TRUE NEED, RAPE WITHOUT PENETRATION.
