Just because the TSA (post "don't-touch-my-junk" incident) is not making headlines daily does not mean that the government agency is not violating American's constitutional rights.
In particular, the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which clearly and simply states:
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.
A story that took place over Memorial Day weekend at Sky Harbor International airport in Phoenix, Arizona highlights the fact that it is still Constitution-abridging, business as usual at the TSA.
Video of an incident recorded over the memorial weekend at Sky Harbor International in Phoenix, AZ, documents how the TSA deal with people who are traumatized by grossly invasive enhanced pat downs.
After a woman refused to go through a full body scanner she was pulled aside and made to undergo the pat down procedure. When the TSA agent touched the woman’s breasts, she broke down into tears and screamed for a police officer.
When police officers arrived on the scene they led the woman away and told her that unless she would submit to the full pat down procedure she would not be able to fly.
“Why won’t you help me? You’re a police officer why won’t you help me?” the woman asks in the video.
All the while the woman’s son was filming the ordeal on his phone, having to constantly fend off threats from TSA agents falsely claiming he was breaking the law. The agents also threatened to confiscate the man’s luggage, even though he had been through the screening process.

Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit thanks Barack Hussein Obama for this incident which begs the question: what year and by whom was the TSA created?
