Did you know you have every right to refuse not only the naked body scanners, but any invasive pat down of your physical body? You do not have to consent to such violations of your natural rights (which supersede political rights). Intrepid activist Clint Richardson recounts his molestation at the hands of the TSA and his plans to hold accountable and sue every officer who acted outside of the authority granted by law as individuals.
As I entered the line for the security and “screening” area of the Salt Lake City Airport on April 27th, 2013, I decided that it was time to stand up for my natural rights as a lawful man.
