A pilot for ExpressJet Airlines refused to submit to a full-body scan in Memphis on Saturday, saying the technology amounts to "virtual strip searching." Detained by airport security, he now may lose his job. Here's his heroic first-hand account.
A few choice quotes:
"Do you want them to board your plane?" he (an airport police official) asked.
"No, but I understand there are other, better ways to keep them off. Besides, at this point I'm more concerned with the greater threat to our rights and liberties as a free society."
"Yeah, I know," he said. And then, to my amazement, he continued, "But somebody's already taken those away."
:cantsay: :sly:
I stated that I did indeed have a problem with the infringement of my civil rights and liberty.
His (TSA investigator) reply: "That's irrelevant."
It wasn't irrelevant to me.
:righton:
Roberts reply: "If your perspective prevails - and I'm afraid it may - we may all live to find ourselves wishing we had fought in earlier days, when we still had a fighting chance."
:righton:

First they came for our shoes.
Then they came for our toothpaste & shampoo.
Now they want us all naked and calmly obedient like :sheep:
