I was watching the news again, (boring), and saw a piece about how Los Angeles is now deploying full body scanners. This bothers me. (not that I will ever be in California). The fact that they are now able to do a search without permission going against our Constitutional rights and get away with it?
4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution
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.
How are we allowing a non invasive search with out a warrant? I realize this is in Ca. and they want socialism and damned the constitution, but, this could go other places. Ever since 9/11 and before, we have been complacent and allowed for the slow erosion of our rights under the guise of security.
As any lawsuit that I might bring from my home state will be thrown out for reasons that I don’t live in the state, I am asking somebody in that state that is of thoughtful mind to file suit against this violation of our Constitutional Rights before it can spread.
What is next? A microphone hooked up to a computer in all public places to gather our private conversations? (who needs a warrant for a cell phone tap, just turn on the mic and listen in?) and then charge us with some inane crime just for saying something that was just a thought and never an action?
