Google glass in Movie theatre in US

Post by Zedinmexico on Wed Jan 22, 2014 8:01 am

Someone was wearing Google Glass in a theatre and AMC (chain of theatres) called TSA in and they removed him from Theatre seized his glasses
and cellphone searched all his devices. He was innocent. No apology from TSA but he was given four free tickets from AMC.  Can't wait to see the
court case.  So if you have google glass and the government thinks you are bad they can do anything. The Theatre has banned them now. Here is the interesting part how come they don't ban all the folks with cell phones Cameras. Court case in Califonia was dismissed as the government could not prove that glasses were displaying in traffic distraction case.  AMC is going to lose a lot of money but where was the search warrant is my TSA issue. No search warrant needed anymore for anything?

None whatsoever if you are called a terrorist. Apparently it's a pretty broad classification. Terrorists finance their nefarious acts by pirating movies therefore movie pirators are terrorists.

Yea but probably 90% of the people have a camera in the Theatre. Can you imagine TSA hey everybody out of the theatre and we can search your body cellphone, phone, computer... with no search warrant because AMC says so?????

Oh have a nice day.....no apology and four movie tickets???? Are these folks real?

Zed:

Granted you posted early and maybe without enough coffee but please get your facts right. The Federal Agents were Department of Homeland Security and not TSA. One of Homeland Security's areas of responsibility is movie theft. The movie theater did not contact Homeland Security but the complaint did come in through the Motion Picture Association of America.

The other contradiction in your post is the granting of four tickets but then the theater banned them?

And you got it WRONG also. They were ICE agents and FBI agents so keep your facts right also. The glasses were banned not people you got that wrong also. And you are dreaming if you don't think AMC is involved in this.

Well, not sure that I agree that it constitutes an offence but if it DOES then the person was "found committing" and under common law authorities would not require a warrant to search for any evidence that may be present. There is also a right to search pursuant to arrest, but that would not extend to the contents of a cell phone or other device.

Take, for example, drunk driving. If a person is found committing the offence then a demand for a breath sample is made - no warrant to search and seize that breath sample is required.

Which actually makes sense. I mean otherwise they have to "freeze" the entire scene while a search warrant is sought.

The lack of search warrant is a non-issue for so many reasons. The OP apparently isn't familiar with The Fourth Amendment and various rulings:
