Arrested by Airport TSA for Reading the U.S. Constitution!
Advertisements [?]
A California doctor (and retired U.S. Air Force Lieutenant Colonel) was arrested yesterday in New Mexico by TSA and airport police for the crime of reading the 4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution aloud as she passed through the TSA security checkpoint. She was otherwise totally complying with all TSA search requests and regulations.

It is bad enough that our Homeland Security Agency and their TSA has routinely ignored our Constitutional Bill of Rights, but it appears that they now consider it a potential terrorist weapon.
