|| Naked TSA Protest: Oregon Judge Says Go For It ||
Bravo Judge Rees, common sense has won!
I'm not so sure. Let's think about this for a minute in a real world application.
1. While free speech and protest may be a right, there are public decency laws against running around in your natural state for all to see. I'm all for protesting, even just for protesting's sake because the signs are often quite funny, but nekkid folks storming around the security check?
Which leads me to point #2: The speedo/string bikini theory. Most females like to look at say....David Beckham in an underwear ad, and men are quite happy to see Bar Rafaeli in a Vicky's Place add in her unmentionables. The problem when this is transferred to the wild is that the people we would like to see on the beach in various stages of undress are often NOT the people we WANT to see in such a manner.
While we all have visions of Kate Upton sashaying through EWR in nothing more than what God gave her I think we know the inevitable result of this:
..........in such cases, we must blink with one eye, have common sense and go for it, especially when justice from the TSA is involved! This case is a rare victory for common sense, we all know it's all good.
There are some things you just CANNOT make up!
One angle that article doesn't cover is how the guy is still aubject to the TSA's Kangaroo Court, where it could still fine up $11k for "interference with the security screening."
I doubt the TSA will levy the fine, but then again, the TSA is well-known for making some extremely stupid decisions.
