Just say no to strip or grope screening

Scott Ott on the TSA’s invasive new screening techniques:

It doesn’t improve passenger safety or deter terrorism. It’s just another example of the federal government closing the barn door after the horse gets out, and violating the rights of the innocent to make it look like the government is doing something about security.

Roberts notes the progression of this liberty-leeching invasion:

After the shoe-bomber attempt, we had to remove our shoes. After the underpants bomber, we had to be electronically strip searched and groped.

What will happen, he asks, after the first time a terrorist smuggles a bomb on a plane inside his rectum or in a breast implant?

What can we do about it?

… he hopes more people will refuse the “enhanced” screening and, as often as possible, decline to travel by air, writing to the airlines to let them know why.

I already hate flying, so it’s advice I’m seriously considering. Indeed, if it weren’t for my mom being back East and the 4 times a year I have to travel for the ABA committee on which I serve, I probably would ditch the whole thing.
