TSA Fail: Man With 4th Amendment Written on Chest Wins Trial Over Airport Arrest
A 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 won a trial Friday in his lawsuit seeking $250,000 in damages for being detained on a disorderly conduct charge.

Aaron Tobey claimed in a civil rights lawsuit (.pdf) that in 2010 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.

The opinions of the judges can be read at the link and are pretty interesting.

From link; opinion by Judge Roger Gregory:

"Here, Mr. Tobey engaged in a silent, peaceful protest using the text of our Constitution—he was well within the ambit of First Amendment protections. And while it is tempting to hold that First Amendment rights should acquiesce to national security in this instance, our Forefather Benjamin Franklin warned against such a temptation by opining that those ‘who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.’ We take heed of his warning and are therefore unwilling to relinquish our First Amendment protections—even in an airport."

Oh,... hell yeah!!!

They asked him if he was connected with any terrorists...last time I checked, terrorists weren't concerned about our constitutional rights.

Now it's apparent that neither terrorist or our government are concerned with our rights, so I guess our government is just another terrorist organization.
