The ACLU is "questioning" the propriety of a new form of pat down frisk being introduced at Boston's Logan, and Vegas' McCarran airports.
Apparently, the previous method was for TSA employees to use the back of the hand. The new "enhanced" version allows them to use the front (palm-side) instead.
Duh, Doh, and fondle my cojones if you want.
This is only for those aluminum-cap wearing folks who don't want to go through the metal detectors ... apparently they have inalienable rights not to be bombarded with cosmic rays, etc., et al.
Those always-looking-out-for-us geniuses at the ACLU say it's just another "erosion" of our right to privacy.
Personally, I think the new hand search is another "construct" of my right to not be blown up or flown into a building while flying from place to place.
But, hey, that's just me.
