First Amendment Underwear: Protest TSA Regulations With Novelty Clothing
There is a lot of uproar about the new travel regulations and airport screening that's happening in the US and in Canada, where body scanners are being implemented to screen travelers. As we enter into the holiday season, we're doing plenty of travel, and it's the perfect opportunity to protest the new TSA regulations with fashion.
These funky fashions will be seen by airport screeners when they put you through the body scanners since they are specially designed to show on the x-ray with the text in a metallic based ink. Each piece of clothing makes reference to the Fourth Amendment which says "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized". Some undergarments include the full text, others just make reference to it.
Of course, you'd better be prepared for the fallout. The people manning the body scanner may not have the same sense of humor. Especially not if they can't get a good look around this metallic text; so you might just be asking for a cavity search. If this sounds like a good time to you, you can get your own Fourth Amendment Undies. How's that for a happy Thanksgiving?
