Pleasant chatter -- -- of the TSA seem like they've never heard of the constitution.
After detaining senator Rand Paul he told freedom march about his theory for why -- scanner went off as he went through.
I think the screeners are doing random screens.
I think their browsers are going off when you go to the screener.
In our random fashion order words are subjected to random pat downs that's why they don't go off each time you go through.
It's either that of the machines don't work at all or she's still work or someone who knows how your personal freedoms work.
Editor in chief of reason magazine good friend of freedom watch Matt -- not it's a pleasure welcome here what why do we.
Allow ourselves to be subjected to this kind of treatment searches and seizures that are not authorized.
-- -- warrant there restraining people for a long time and meeting their property and their clothing and their bodies and we do it like -- Rand Paul didn't take it like -- but most people do.
Because we've got to get to New York or San Francisco or Memphis we've got to gets where we need to go.
And we don't have a choice to stand up against this stop for just two.
To call time out in the middle of your workday and having your rights sort of -- -- Requires that you inconvenient someone you hold -- the line people don't want to do that they wanna get through they don't want to.
Cause any trouble and they defer to authority in ways that that undermine all of our liberties to yeah.
All right if if the TSA we're here and and congressman.
Paul not not Rand Paul Ron Paul has interrogated John pistol.
Appropriate name person I was ahead of the TSA if they were here they would say this you know what.
When you -- -- your airline ticket you about her fourth amendment rights because you know with that ticket.
Comes a potential pat down and search.
Anybody who believes that they have given up their fourth amendment rights for which we fought a revolution against the king of the parliament 250 years ago by buying an airline tickets.
I mean unfortunately we all know people who believe that because we act as if that's true the fact is is you know well because of not just.
A post terrorism kind of security measures but also because of the drug war and what that has done to the Fourth Amendment in this country that it's been under a repeated -- now for three or four decades and it's -- rational thing to conclude that we don't have much Fourth Amendment protection lap which is sad and -- why we need to keep.
Bringing up these kinds of transgressions at some of our.
Emails are saying they're glad that this happened to senator Paul because it it brings a serious problem that could happen to anyone.
To the front pages.
But his his argument is pretty interest and he's actually saying that he was stopped because he was randomly selected -- We know for a fact there's no metal in his knee and that's what they claim -- -- but he's saying Weber was where he was in line.
Would have triggered this because there's a random selection that's against federal law and that's against HHS regulation.
And he's -- American public tolerate that I hope not I mean he's got two data points which is two different TSA agents he says told him that they do this kind of random rising.
Not -- necessarily tied to reality type of thing the other data point as he went back through the scanner that's all he was trying to do -- -- In this whole ordeal ninety minutes later he went through the scanner and it didn't go off again so he's right either.
This is some kind of randomized -- or they're not working well either way.
Congress needs to do with its investigative powers needs to investigate what is the truth -- -- -- -- denying.
You know that anything like this is possible I don't wanna put you on the spot to -- for Civil Disobedience.
Absolutely I mean every day going through these scanners one where the other -- I -- you know people I know people right who.
Go through the pat down every time just to show people how intrusive it is right that -- thanks for joining us.
