If you have been to the airport, you have gone through the Transporation Safety Administration checkpoints. Have you ever noticed what the TSA does? First of all, for the most part, they are not good people because they are not following the Bill of Rights; and second of all, if you think that it is good to have them there, then you are no better in your thinking. Let me explain.
Today, I’m going to give you some knowledge about how bad the TSA can be. When my family and I go through the TSA line, I see them violating people, even old people. I told my Dad that this is just like a movie I saw about Adolf Hitler and his security checkpoints. The TSA will pat you down just like they did in Hitler’s day and worst of all, they break your rights protected under the 4th Amendment.
The 4th Amendment reads:
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 persons or things to be seized.
One time, I was going through the TSA metal detector and a TSA agent offered me a TSA sticker and when I said “No,” he asked why? I told him it breaks the Fourth Amendment and he replied with, “I don’t know about that one.”
To all of you reading this, the TSA knows the 4th Amendment, they just say that because they are guilty of breaking it. And if they don’t know it, then shame on them for not reading it and knowing our American rights.
Another example as to why the TSA are bad is because they steal from people. There was a guy who got his laptop stolen at the Memphis airport. My Dad even got his laptop stolen over there. How are they getting away with this?
Now I’m going to tell you what the TSA was like back in the old days. Back in the old days, the TSA wasn’t like it was today because it didn’t even exist.
You could go to an airport and just walk through a metal detector. No one touched you, patted you down or held you up because you had some perfume or even some water, which is ridiculous! They didn’t have to rescan certain items either because you might have a dangerous tube of toothpaste above 3.4 ounces or something like that. I’m being facetious, of course. You simply went through the metal detector.
So, in ending, I want to say that everyone should know their rights and when their rights are being violated by the TSA. Don’t tolerate it!
