ACLU Says TSA Violating Your Rights
The ACLU of Idaho says the TSA’s new screening procedures violate American’s civil rights. Those procedures include the choice of going through a body scanner or getting a thorough pat down. Monica Hopkins with the ACLU of Idaho says the new screening techniques violate every traveler’s civil rights when they should just be used for high-risk travelers. Hopkins also says these new screenings were rushed into practice in response to a passenger smuggling a bomb in his underwear onto a Northwest Airlines flight last Christmas. But according to a report from the U.S. government accountability office the scanners might not have detected that bomb anyway. If you do have complaints, the ACLU has provided a complaint form for you. You can find it on their website. They’ve already received 400 reports of alleged abuses by the TSA.
