U.S. Airports are Constitution-free zones: Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura Decries “Fascist” America After Judge Dismisses TSA Case
Vowing to “never fly commercial” again, ex-Wrestler and former NAVY SEAL Jesse Ventura gave a passionate press conference, expressing his anger at TSA grope down procedures that force people like himself with metal implants to go through humiliating pat downs every time they pass through airport security.
His lawyer was told the case could not go to jury trial due to “secrecy reasons” over “national security”…
“I want a trial by jury. They tell me I can have a jury decide my fate!” Ventura said, refering to the judge who dismissed the case as a “coward”. “If given a jury, I will win,” he added.
“I will not, in a free country, be treated like a criminal,” said Ventura, adding that he and his wife intended to apply for Mexican citizenship.
Referring to 9/11, Ventura questioned the reasoning behind the whole war on terror. “George Bush said we were attacked because they were jealous of our freedoms. So we take away our freedoms so they won’t be jealous anymore?” he said. “I think they’re winning.”
