Concerned individuals in Austin, Texas are resisting the TSA through the local government. Hats off to them! They actually convinced the airport advisory commission to take a stand against the naked body scanners. Their next target? Austin city council. Imagine if their efforts were replicated in every city across the nation? That’s where you come in.
Of course, local governments have no power over the TSA in the US state system. Only at the federal level can the TSA be reigned in.
Notice how the person representing the pro-scanner position says things like “I like to think it makes us safer” and “I hope that’s enough”. Clearly, passenger security requires a sounder foundation than “liking to think” and “hoping”.
Here’s a video of the Austin airport advisory council meeting itself.
