4th Amendment Tees

Posted: 17 Jan 2011 03:29 AM PST

4th Amendment Wear offers Americans something that the rest of us would surely love to have, an inalienable right to privacy under the U.S Bill of Rights “which guards against unreasonable searches and seizures”. If you’ve ever travelled to or across the USA by plane you’ll be well aware of the ridiculously intrusive search policy of American airport security. Many travellers in Britain have complained about the fact that they have to remove their shoes and socks to even get through the gate. Well things are getting worse, with the introduction of full body TSA X-ray scanners that see everything, not just the items that maybe concealed in your clothing, but your body too, and I mean all of it, down to the contents of your underwear.

Personally speaking, I think anyone prepared to put up with this in order to get to the States is in actuality agreeing to leave their human rights at the border. There are few if any journeys worth forsaking one’s human rights just for the chance to travel. When you consider all the cancellations, air fares and taxes, minuscule seating arrangements, surly staff and invasion of personal privacy, I wonder how long this situation can continue?

4th Amendment Wear is taking a stand, their metallic ink-printed tees and underwear highlight the plight of air travellers the world over, as they breach the American border. The prices are a little steep, but the process is pricey and the concept is so worthwhile, especially when you consider that airport security applies the same measures to your kids. Of course, this is all meant to be part of a peaceful process, highlighting the imbalance in the rights of travellers versus corporate and governmental agenda. “Most TSA employees are extremely professional, so these clothes are meant to again provoke debate rather than be read as a message aimed at specific employees who are just doing their jobs.”
