Federal Court Rules That TSA ‘Naked Scans’ Are Constitutional
Last weekend, a Tennessee woman was arrested at the Nashville airport for disorderly conduct after she refused TSA security measures for her children. The woman didn’t want her two children to have to go through a whole-body-imaging scanner. When a Transportation Security Administration officer told her the machines were safe, she said, “I still don’t want someone to see our bodies naked.”

She won’t be pleased with a ruling then out of the D.C. Circuit today. This morning, the federal court ruled that the “naked scans” of air travelers do not violate Americans’ constitutional rights. Privacy rights group EPIC had sued the Department of Homeland Security, alleging violations of innocent passengers’ Fourth Amendment right to be free of unreasonable searches. The court says that argument doesn’t fly.

In the opinion [pdf] from the D.C. Circuit Court (the Volokh Conspiracy), Judge Douglas Ginsburg writes that the advance imaging technology is not unreasonable given the security concerns on airplanes, and that people have the option to opt out for a pleasurable patdown. The court notes that some “have complained that the resulting patdown was unnecessarily aggressive,” but the judges don’t seem overly concerned about that. Ginsburg writes:

A good business to start would be to charter planes and get people together to fill them up and split the cost of the charter...no TSA checkpoint for private flights :)

Do you have any idea what it costs to charter an airplane?

Airlines make air travel economical so the average person can afford it. Charter doesn't have the economy of scale that a full network airline has.

The TSA is making these terrible policies, not the airlines.

Not so fast there..try accurately posting what happened..damn

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled today that the TSA violated federal law by rolling out radiation firing body scanners in airports without soliciting public comment. The court will allow use of the scanners to continue, however.

Translation: "The gestapo ... I mean ... the TSA, yeah, right, the TSA ... are above the law."

You can file this one in the already blotted file of "shit they get away with" while the sheeples are grazing stupidly in front of their "idiot boxes"

the reason the judges dont seem overly concerned is because they probably dont have to go through pat downs and body scans....that and the fact they probably own stock in the companies that make the scanners.....

And lets not forget who benefitted after Ni9e E11ven. I seem to recall the Airline Industry got a huge shot in the arm. When did they pay that back? Oh yeah what happened to the $$$$$$ that the DRed Cross took in to help the victims.

It just goes on ad-infiniteum or ad-naseau, just depends on your point of view.
