Florida Libertarian Party plans protest of TSA this Sunday, alleging abuse

Weeks after announcing its campaign against what they say are sexual abuses by TSA agents, the Libertarian Party of Florida is holding a rally to protest “warrantless and random searches at airport checkpoints.” #

The rally will be held this Sunday outside of the Daytona Florida Sheriffs Association convention. According to a press release, the goal of the protest will be “to encourage sheriffs to uphold the Fourth Amendment, as well as Florida statutes on molestation, as they apply to TSA employees.” #

Those organizing the protest are encouraging attendees to bring signs urging sheriffs to confront the TSA. #

In a July 4 email sent to all 67 of Florida’s sheriffs, Florida Libertarian Party chairman Adrian Wyllie called for the arrest of state TSA agents, writing that the seizure of travelers’ items are a direct violation of the United States Constitution.Wyllie went on to write that searches known as “Enhanced Pat Downs” are “clearly within the definition of felony sexual battery.” #

“As Sheriff, you have the absolute duty to enforce the law uniformly and without prejudice,” wrote Wyllie. “You are, at best, engaged in selective enforcement by choosing to further ignore these flagrant violations of federal and state law. At worst, you are complicit.” #

From a press release touting Sunday’s rally: #

Rally organizers contend that the TSA imaging systems, commonly known as “naked body scanners,” are a violation of the Fourth Amendment, and may violate child pornography laws when used on children. They also point out that these scanners, which emit radiation, may be a health hazard, citing data that indicates a correlation between the scanners an a rapid increase in cancer rates among TSA employees. The Department of Homeland Security has denied that the scanners pose a health hazard to employees or travelers, and has refused to comply with OSHA and other regulatory standards regarding x-ray machines and radiation-emitting devices. #

Organizers also object to the enhanced pat-downs performed by TSA agents on travelers who refuse to be scanned. “Not only do the enhanced pat-downs violated the Bill of Rights and Article One, Section 12 of the the Florida Constitution, they are clearly in violation of statues regarding lewd and lascivious behavior, and in some cases even felony sexual battery,” said Wyllie. “The sheriffs apparently believe that if the federal government does it, then it must be lawful. That’s a very dangerous fallacy.” #
