Although I understand the need for TSA so as not be taken hostage/killed/blown up while on my flight, "savxcor" has a good point on the 4th amendment as in:
Because '[t]he integrity of an individual's person is a cherished value in our society,' searches that invade bodily integrity cannot be executed as mere fishing expeditions to acquire useful evidence: 'The interests in human dignity and privacy which the Fourth Amendment protects forbid any such intrusions on the mere chance that desired evidence might be obtained.
Blanket searches are unreasonable, however 'evenhanded' they may be, in the traditional criminal law enforcement context. See, e.g., Ybarra v. Illinois, 444 U.S. 85, 91-2, 92 n.4 ('79) (invalidating a blanket patdown search of all patrons in a tavern, even though there was probable cause to search the bartender and the premises). The ill that the Fourth Amendment prevents is not merely the arbitrariness of police discretion to single out individuals for attention, but also the unwarranted domination and control of the citizenry through fear of baseless but 'evenhanded' general police searches.
Besides, I don't know anyone well enough at the TSA to want them rubbing their hands all over my body, & do not know enough about the scanner to feel good about X rays shooting into my pores! (& no, I do not think they are getting their Perv on looking/feeling peeps, it's just gross!)
