More on upcoming Utah bill to ban unconstitutional TSA pat-downs

Utah Rep. Carl Wimmer is set to introduce a bill (sometime next year?) that would restrict TSA agents to Constitutional searches only at airport checkpoints.

Utah lawmaker seeks to limit TSA pat-downs , KSL.com, May 27th, 2011

…Wimmer told KSL News it is the role of the state Legislature to protect Utah residents from illegal searches and seizures, and he said the TSA is violating people’s rights every day in the airports.

Wimmer also said people all over the country should be outraged that the federal government threatened Texas after a bill there to regulate the TSA pat downs started moving through their house of representatives.

A somewhat misleading headline but an informative article:

Wimmer wants to stop TSA searches , Daily Herald, May 27th 2011

…”The absolute overbearing audacity of the federal government in threatening Texas while Texas is trying to protect their citizens should really offend any red-blooded American,” he said.

Ron Paul on TSA: ‘government’s role is to protect our rights!’ not violate them

CNN 11/19/10

Go Ron Paul! Government is supposed to protect our rights, period. “Taking away all our liberties won’t solve our problems!”

The lady argues that the TSA just hasn’t done a good enough job of explaining why it’s groping us? Ridiculous! How does explaining that you’re violating someone’s rights make it any better?

Napolitano is a liar! liar! liar! They already admitted that they store the images and that’s what the machines were intended to do!

Ron Paul to Congress, TSA: “Enough is Enough”

Government does NOT have the authority to GIVE OR TAKE AWAY our rights. Just because they are the so-called “authorities” does NOT mean they can grope and/or molest you! The TSA is now a criminal organization with what their agents are doing daily!!! As usual, Ron Paul leads the charge in Congress, will other Congressman step up or will they stand idly by as usual while our freedom disinigrates? Don’t let up, and don’t let them pacify you on this, one of the most important issues to ever face our nation.

Ron Paul has introduced H.R. 6416, “The American Traveler Dignity Act“.

“This TSA version of our rights looks more like the “rights” granted in the old Soviet Constitutions, where freedoms were granted to Soviet citizens — right up to the moment the state decided to remove those freedoms.” —Ron Paul

Pilots voice support for Michael Roberts on ExpressJet online forums

From pilot sspears737 on the forums:

“Good for you I can’t see why you shouldn’t have been allowed passage. I have a friend who was almost denied passage at terminal C in IAH the other day. The TSA screener threatened him with a pat down at which he stated he had no problem undergoing a pat down. The TSA screener a female then stated, “she would grab his crotch.” I wish I was making this ***** up. It’s the blind leading the blind at the TSA. Good luck with your incident I was harassed myself in terminal E and I understand the lack of accountability that TSA agents have when dealing with the public. You can be threatened at a moments notice by an agent if they see fit…”
