Just came across this article.
A 21 year old guy from Wisconsin knowingly stood up for the rights of all Americans when he went through TSA. Instead of going through the virtual body scanner, he opted to be patted down, to which he removed his clothes and revealed a very important and pertinent message on his chest - The 4th Amendment.
We should all lead by example and demand our rights be restored. TSA needs to be eliminated. They have gotten overly precarious in their passenger screenings, and it's time for Gen Y to let them know what's up!

This 21-year-old was on his way to Wisconsin for his grandmothers funeral when he was handcuffed and held for 90 minutes on a disorderly conduct charge. Why? He opted-out of the "naked scanner" and instead chose the pat-down — at which point he began removing his clothes to expose a message written on his chest in marker. The message, of course, was the 4th amendment.
"He went there knowing he would not do the advanced imaging and do the pat-down instead," his attorney said in a telephone interview with Wired. "He was making it easy for them and in the process he wanted to communicate his objection for doing so."
The man is now suing for, among other things, wrongful detention and a breach of the First Amendment and Fourth Amendment. Despite the delay, he made his flight.
