Force The TSA to Remember the 4th Amendment: Wear Inflammatory Clothes

Travel News, USA — By John Curran on December 15, 2010 at 3:30 pm

Note, we do not advocate wearing inflammable clothes, because inflammable is the same as flammable and we don’t want anyone going up in a puff of smoke. But for those with room in their carry-on for a bit of snark, we came across these amusing bits of Fourth Amendment-related clothing.

By using metallic ink, the 4thAmendementWear collection at Cargo Collective ensures that the text of the Fourth Amendment will be visible during the new, ridiculously intrusive scanning now going on at nearly every major airport in the United States. Now, speaking from the safety of the internet, we think it’s absolutely hilarious to imagine scanners showing up the text of unlawful search and seizures.

On the other hand, rocking the boat could have disastrous consequences for those who might already having issues with screening, since it’s likely to cause some consternation from Transportation Security Administration.

So if you’re looking for places to stick the Fourth Amendment, you could always put it on the back of a one-sided E-ticket from various airlines. Or just stick the following text in your wallet and purse:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
