Homeland Security Unveils Mobile Mind Screening Checkpoints
SO here is a promo piece of a new mobile 4th and 5th amendment-breaking technology. The inside looks nice an intimidating with the lab coats, the sterile walls and such but here are some of my observations
Why is the government creating technology that it unconstitutional if used by the government? The government's main purpose/function is to defend the Constitution, if it can't do that or won't do that then the rest of its secondary functions are irrelevant since those function are dependent on the ability to perform the primary function.
How is the DHS going to get around people exercise their 4th and 5th amendment rights (and depending on where they park and use this; the people's 1st, 2nd and even 3rd amendment rights)? If the peoople exercise theese rights, the government cannot lawfully detain them
If this were to be used by private organizations, then there are within their rights to do so but they are definitely running the risk of alienating their customer to say the least. And they are introducing an avenue of abuse by the security arm that could introduce (if big enough) a possible class-action liability lawsuit.
