  • A 21-year-old Virginia man who wrote an abbreviated version of the Fourth Amendment on his body and stripped to his shorts at an airport security screening area is demanding $250,000 in damages for being detained on a disorderly conduct charge.

    Aaron Tobey claims in a civil rights lawsuit (.pdf) that in December he was handcuffed and held for about 90 minutes by the Transportation Security Administration at the Richmond International Airport after he began removing his clothing to display on his chest a magic-marker protest of airport security measures.

    “Amendment 4: The right of the people to be secure against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated,” his chest and gut read.

    The University of Cincinnati student didn’t want to go through the advanced imaging technology X-ray machines that are cropping up at airports nationwide. Instead, when it was his turn to be screened, he was going to opt for an intrusive pat-down — and remove most of his clothing in the process.

    “He went there knowing he would not do the advanced imaging and do the pat-down instead,” his attorney, James Knicely, said in a telephone interview. “He was making it easy for them and in the process he wanted to communicate his objection for doing so.”

    Among other things, the federal lawsuit claims wrongful detention and a breach of the First Amendment and Fourth Amendment. “He was held there for 90 minutes, and handcuffed behind his back,” Knicely said.

    Tobey was on his way to Wisconsin for his grandmother’s funeral. Despite his detainment, he made his flight.

    According to the suit, while under interrogation on December 30, the authorities wanted to know “about his affiliation with, or knowledge of, any terrorist organizations, if he had been asked to do what he did by any third party, and what his intentions and goals were.”

    Two weeks later, Henrico County prosecutors dropped the misdemeanor charge.

    (Tenn Rep) John J. Duncan Jr Gives His Take on The New Congress – Alex Jones Tv

    WASHINGTON — Congressman John J. Duncan, Jr. (R-Tenn.) blasted the Transportation Security Administration Wednesday during a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives for invasive “pat-downs” of U.S. citizens and the role lucrative government contracts played in the use of body scanning machines at airport checkpoints.

    Duncan, former Chairman of the House Aviation Subcommittee and the current top Republican on the House Subcommittee on Highways and Transit, said: “Unfortunately, for the traveling public, big brother never makes a mistake, so I am not surprised they are trying to defend the purchase of these scanners.”

    Mr. Speaker:

    A nationwide revolt is developing over the body scanners at the airports, and it should.

    Hundreds of thousands of frequent fliers who fly each week are upset about getting these frequent doses of radiation.

    Parents are upset about being forced to have their children radiated or being touched inappropriately by an unrelated adult.

    There is already plenty of security at the airport, but now we are going to spend up to $300 million to install 1,000 scanners.

    This is much more about money than it is about security.

    The former Secretary of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff, represents Rapiscan, the company which is selling these scanners to his former department.

    Far too many federal contracts are sweetheart, insider deals.

    Companies hire former high ranking federal officials, and then magically, those companies get hugely profitable federal contracts.

    The American people should not have to choose between having full-body radiation or a very embarrassing, intrusive pat-down every time they fly, as if they were criminals.

    We need a little more balance and common sense on this.
