Earlier this month, a horrific confrontation on a United Airlines plane drew attention to the overreach of authorities in airports. Now a new line of underwear by 4th Amendment Wear is bringing attention specifically to the overreach of another group of people in airports: TSA agents.

“Using metallic ink, 4th Amendment Wear literally prints the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution onto t-shirts, underwear for men and women, and ‘perverts’ kid’s underclothes’ for when the TSA agent goes too far with your children,” Red Alert Politics states.
