If we don’t fight TSA-like security coming to sidewalks, football games, Texas Rep. warns

The lawmaker behind a bill Texas that would levy felony charges against overly-touchy security personnel may be staunchly Republican, but he truly believes his cause isn't one tied to the political left or right.

"We're talking about what would be a criminal act in any other place," Rep. David Simpson ® told Raw Story on Monday. "If you viewed someone naked without their permission or consent, or as a condition of travel, it would be sexual harassment or vouyerism. If you touched people's privates, that would be sexual assault.

"This is not a left or right issue," he added. "They are treating American citizens with great indignity, and we've got to make this right."

Though unlikely to pass -- even with a GOP supermajority in the Texas legislature -- Simpson's proposal has become a cause célèbre for civil libertarians, many of whom adamantly oppose the TSA's screening procedures.

The bill would amend a Texas statute pertaining to "the offensive touching of persons," extending it to security personnel who conduct a search "without probable cause."

That's actually the exact wording used in the Constitution in the section outlining prohibitions on unreasonable search and seizure. The legal standard for a lawful search is probable cause: a requirement that law enforcement must meet before most judges will issue search warrants.

If people sit by complacently and allow this to happen, I guess they deserve a fascist police state.

Damn neocons are trying to outlaw hand jobs now?



Those BASTARDS!




My buddy got felt up by a pint sized, Napoleon complex having Hackensack cop. That cop had some serious mental issues. He was searching my buddy for no reason and grabbed his package. Mini-cop says,"What's that?". Buddy says,"That's my dick. Keep movin' your hand."

I didn't know a person could turn that shade of red.

Mini-cop jumps in his car and makes a quick exit. His back-up thought it was as funny as we did.

 
And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
