Texas reintroduces bill to criminalize invasive TSA pat downs

(NaturalNews) Living up to a promise he made last fall, Representative
David Simpson of Longview, Texas, has once again reintroduced a bill
that would reign in the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and its flagrantly unconstitutional abuses at Texas airports. As reported by CBS News,
the latest version of Rep. Simpson's bill has been watered down some,
still allowing TSA screeners to pat down travelers, but prohibits the
type of invasive groping that is all-too-common at American airports.

If passed, the Texas Travel Freedom Act
(TTFA), also known as House Bill 80, would make it a criminal act for
TSA screeners to intentionally touch "the anus, breast, buttocks, or
sexual organ of the other person, including touching through clothing"
without probable cause in the process of determining whether to allow
someone to access a public venue or travel. The bill would also provide
extra protection for children, who are regularly molested by TSA
screeners when their parents refuse to allow them to pass through the
TSA's naked body scanners.

"The problem is this effort at
security is really treating travelers, innocent people, as criminal
suspects and making them submit to unreasonable, very intrusive
searches," says Rep. Simpson. "They're violating peoples' most sacred
areas of their bodies. It's not only offensive, it's insane."

Federal government has repeatedly threatened states that challenge TSA

in 2011 when Rep. Simpson first introduced a stricter version of the
bill, the federal government quickly demonstrated its rogue nature by
threatening to shut down all air travel in the state of Texas.
Many Texas congressmen quickly retreated from the legislation, proving
themselves to be complete cowards, and the bill died. But Rep. Simpson
has remained persistent in trying to defend the people's right to travel freely without government intrusion.

you walk up to somebody and grab their crotch out on the street, it
will land you in jail," adds Rep. Simpson. "Blue uniforms and federal
badges don't grant some goon the power to sexually assault you, or at
least they shouldn't. A person doesn't forfeit her or his dignity with
the purchase of an airline ticket."

Meanwhile, a lawsuit filed against the TSA by two Harvard University law students is soon headed to a court hearing, according to the Huffington Post.
The suit rightfully alleges that the TSA's naked body scanners and
"enhanced" pat downs violate travelers' Fourth Amendment rights by
subjecting them to unreasonable searches without warrant or probable
cause. If successful, the lawsuit will be critical in eventually
deconstructing the ridiculous TSA security theater present at most U.S.
