Read more: The 4th Amendment: In his heart, on his chest http://www.wnd.com/index.php?pageId=255 ... z1CAh3DZrXAt the command of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, I have often written about the need for students to understand why they are Americans â€" so they can act as informed citizens. This is the inspirational story of 21-year-old architecture student Aaron Tobey, who was outraged at the violation of his civil liberties by the Transportation Security Authority's imposition of whole-body imaging scanning and pat downs of our private parts at airports.
On Dec. 30, waiting in line at Richmond (Va.) International Airport, Tobey, determined "to start a dialogue" about the crucial importance of the First and Fourth Amendments to our constitutional liberties, removed his shirt as the screening began in order to show that he had written on his chest the core of the Fourth Amendment:
"The right of the people to be secure ... against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated."
Immediately arrested and handcuffed, this young, insistent constitutionalists was interrogated for 90 minutes by security agencies, including, of course, the FBI's Joint Task Force on Terrorism.
Just a great read about standing up for your rights, shaking your fist in the face of tyrants, and winning. I wish I had these kind of guts! This guy is a true Patriot, and I applaud him in his actions and his resolve.
