    She’s an internationally known movie star and model. Not exactly the face of terrorism, is it?

    Kudos to Kate Beckinsale for not pulling a “Do you know who I am”, I take the scan as the first alternative, and I’m sick of whiners and complainers, not helping America ensure we have safe flights home, you are helping the terrorists.

    These rules are there to find terrorist and suicide bombers. Kate Beckinsale has made millions and posed nude for movies and photos, its safe to say she is not a member of Al Qaeda.

    For the record, by submitting to a procedure that blatantly violates every fiber of the Fourth Amendment, you have directly admitted to the fact that we have already lost the war on terror.

    who knows Dafty, it could all have been a convoluted plan leading up to that moment. She could’ve planned her entire life out in order to bomb a plane, so it would be believable.

    Oh grow up you fool. The whole point of terrorism is to force you to change your very way of life. By that measure America is a cowering, simpering petulant child afraid to come out from under the bed because there’s a boogeyman waiting to hurt it behind every door. You beat terrorism by NOT letting it change who you are and how you conduct your life.

    Are you trying to make me live my life in fear? Because that makes you a terrorist.

    submission to an ILLEGAL search and seizure by very definition makes it no longer ILLEGAL. Just sayin. If you want to make an argument with cogent points – please make it better than that.

    When when your mom submitted to me raping her, it became legal? I think you need a new dictionary there, genius.

    Neither are the millions of other Americans that are being searched. The plane became no safer when Bekinsale or any other innocent person was stripped of their dignity and treated like criminal with no probable cause. To think that an elderly couple traveling with their grandchildren is just as dangerous as suspected radical Mulsim with a one way ticket and no luggage is insane and paranoid.

    Consent to sex – is by very definition not rape. Rape is non-consenting; Otherwise its not rape. I think you need a new dictionary there, genius.

    My point is only that the 4th amendment doesn’t really apply. They aren’t walking up to you on the street and pushing you down on the ground in a random search. You freely walk to the check point, you freely submit, because you choose to fly even despite your disdain for the process.

    There are some sh*tty things going on – now doubt. But the fourth amendment isn’t being violated.

    the security checkpoints have been around for as long as I can remember. They haven’t really changed that much. You wait in line. You walk thru a screening of some sort. The only thing that has changed is the technology. Which is good – cuz bombs and T-rizzles they a be gettin better.

    But I do agree with you on “America is a cowering, simpering petulant child afraid to come out from under the bed because there’s a boogeyman” waiting to touch you on the other side of the security screening.

    I fixed the last part for you though.

    Didn’t say consented. Said submitted. As in forced into submission.

    And the 4th amendment does apply. You only freely submitted if you can say no and still retain your right to fly. Just as if an officer asks to search your vehicle, you can refuse and DRIVE away. Probable cause is required. They claim they do not need it. People are being forced to do this or their right to fly is removed by the government which must comply with the Constitution.


  20. November 22, 2010 9:55 am

    Guesty

    Also would like for you to actually read the 4th amendment and tell me where it is not perfectly clear that this is illegal. According to several Supreme Court cases reasonable suspicion is needed in order to conduct intrusive body searches such as pat-downs, strip searches (like the body scan), x-rays (what kind of machine is this again), and cavity searches. So yes, Mr. Constitutional law dropout, the 4th amendment is being violated and buying a plane ticket does not give consent. They are getting away with it because they claim it is necessary even though the last fatal explosive on a plane in the U.S. was in 1962. They are really doing it to justify the money going to Chertoff.

    TSA has never found or stopped any terrorist at any airport in America ever. These is just to put people at ease, and make them feel safer.

    ginger

    Yeah but that’s like saying – The speed limit has never saved one single life – ever.
    Or the security at the Whitehouse has never stopped an assassination attempt there – ever.

    All are true, but clearly disingenuous.

    oh I didn’t realize that people are being beaten into submission. Thank you for clarifying. What methods do they use, sleeper holds, knives, electro shock therapy? – Gosh i do I hope i haven’t wasted your time quibbling over minor semantics because I intentionally perverted the use of one of your words.

    Oh wait… that wasn’t me…that was you.

    As for your right to fly. I didn’t see that one in the bill of rights. I told a skydive company that I wanted to jump out of their plane. They said I had to where a parachute. I said no. They told me I couldn’t fly. How does that all work?

    It’s clearly not as cut and dry as you say.

    Not exactly. It would be more like saying no one has ever gotten caught speeding since a limit was put in effect. But that wouldn’t be a good thing to say, since it is obviously not true.


  25. November 22, 2010 9:55 am

    Guesty

    Completely missing the point. Clearly I’ve become engaged in a battle of wits against an unarmed person.

    Right to fly is not in the bill of rights, but in other amendments. The original point of submitting was not by me, but had a valid point that giving up your freedoms is exactly what the terrorists organizations wanted and those demands were given into.

    Also, the law states that consent isn’t an issue for airports. Once you make the decision to enter the secure area of an airport (by their definition this means as soon as your bag hits the conveyor belt) you cannot back out. They no longer need consent to search you and if you refuse you will be detained. However they are limited to searches which respect the privacy of travelers and can only escalate to more intrusive searches once reasonable suspicion arises. That is cut and dry in the law.

    A skydive company is a private company and can tell you to go suck it if they wish. They don’t have to let you on their plane ever. I don’t blame them.

    Oops, not other amendments. I meant elsewhere in the Constitution. Article 4, if I’m not mistaken.

    and when did I, in this democracy, vote to allow some “security guy” violate me? I dont recall ever getting a say in this. It is only legal if we continue to allow this violation of our rights and freedoms and give in to terrorism. Based on your comment, submission makes it legal. Heres a simple solution DONT SUBMIT!

    I am one of those who never take the time to comment on this shit and just browse through. However Ginger is an idiot, and if he doesn’t see that the ability to fly and the fact that that is what they are using to submit people to these searches, then this is not a conversation you should bother with Guesty. I don’t mind metal detectors, safe technology and non-intrusive. I do mind having my balls juggled and forced to use a non safe technology (its a fucking xray machine with no long term effect studies) just so I can have the ‘right’ to fly. That is crazy bullshit.

    Again so I’m clear, they are forcing people to submit by withholding the right to fly, something that is basically a crucial need to anyone not living under a rock. And this is exactly what is not suppose to happen in a ‘free’ country. I wouldn’t be surprise if the american population becomes sterile due to these machines….but hey, you go right ahead and walk right through them if you wish.

    YES I MAD

    Speed limits are good ideas because they keep idiots like you from going so fast that they lose control of their car. Try comparing the TSA to something that makes more sense next time you dolt.
    Having a speed limit and getting your manhood felt up by some sweaty fat man are completely two different things.

    The Constitution does not give us the “right” to fly; nor the right to “drive” or any other means of transportation. What the Constitution DOES give us is the right to move freely between states without needing documentation to do so (ie; passport, visa, etc..).

    I don’t believe in the search procedures or anything else our government takes away or changes in the name of “safety” but I also know that it isn’t a violation of your rights; you CAN choose not to be scanned or groped or stared at or blown-up by a terrorist while you fly – DON’T FLY. That is your choice. Once you choose TO fly, knowing what awaits you at the airport, you have in fact consented to those searches. Another example of consent: When you get a drivers license you consent to give a breathalizer test if asked to do so during a traffic stop; even if you haven’t been drinking. Is that an invasion of your rights? No because you consented to do that when you got your drivers license. Don’t want to consent to that? Don’t get a drivers license. I’d say driving is more critical in most peoples’ lives than flying is yet it isn’t protected by the Constitution either.

    So…while I don’t agree with the methods and steps our government has taken, beating this isn’t going to come from the courts but by the citizens of the USA standing up as one and saying – “We’re not going to take this”. Unless and until that happens those of us who value our freedoms are going to be the minority in a sea of bleating sheep who want nothing more than to feel protected from the “wolves”.

    Nah, airport searches have been around for a long time – they’re being enhanced and for good reason. You don’t have to ‘submit’ to the search. You just can’t fly, then. You have a choice.

    I have no issue whatsoever being searched, and don’t have an issue with the idea of anyone who I care about and love being searched either.

    Just my opinion (which is what we’re all sharing here) – I think people who put up a hugh stink are kinda being selfish and self-centered.

    On top of that, parents could and should prepare their kids as best as they can for a potential search. However a parent chooses to go about that depends on their parenting skills and how creative they are, but it could definitely help make it easier for all parties involved.
