Wishing away that nasty First Amendment, Bob Schieffer has a memory wipe, and thoroughly frisking shifty-looking toddlers — all on another exciting episode of… The Week in Blogs!
Will the next episode of the “Week in Blogs” be devoted entirely to Megyn Kelly’s appearance in GQ?
From the TSA website: Federal Employee Oath of Office
“I, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
Law pursuant to penalties for the sort of violations of which agents of the TSA are guilty:
§ 242. Deprivation of rights under color of law
“Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed for the punishment of citizens, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section…
…or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.”
Note that last section, and the penalties pertaining.
Don’t be too rough on the TSA. They’re just trying to protect us. Please support our modest proposal to help them help us: chemical castration of TSA agents.
You may say it’s treating them like criminals, but that’s not the intent at all. Remember, we all have to make sacrifices for security.
