Jesse Ventura sues TSA, says body scans and [enhanced] pat-down searches violate rights
But when Ventura set off the metal detector in November, he was instead subjected to a body pat-down and was not given the option of a scan with a hand-held wand or an exemption for being a frequent traveler, the lawsuit said.He does not deserve to be treated like this. No US citizen or anyone peacefully traveling through US airports deserve to be treated in this useless and terrible manner.
The lawsuit said the pat-down "exposed him to humiliation and degradation through unwanted touching, gripping and rubbing of the intimate areas of his body."
It claims that under TSA's policy, Ventura will be required to either go through a full-body scanner or submit to a pat-down every time he travels because he will always set off the metal detector.
As I said before this monstrous policy must be abolished immediately. (And the full body scanners as well, but I regard the enhanced pat downs as the major priority.)
I certainly wish Jesse Ventura well in what I am sure will be a hard struggle. I hope he wins.
