Court Rules It’s Legal To Go Through Airport Security Naked
Sure, why not. If they’re going to grope us and scan our bodies, we may as well be naked.
Brennan’s nudity was intended as a protest of the TSA’s screening tactics. “I was mostly motivated by the absurdity of it all. The irony that they want to see me naked, but I don’t get to take off my clothes off,” he said. “You have all these machines that pretend to do it.”
The court felt the nudity was legal as a political expression under the 1st amendment.
I’m not sure I buy that entirely. I think what the TSA is doing to Americans every single day is an atrocious and egregious abuse of our privacy rights, but I’m not sure that requiring that protesters keep their close on is an affront to their free expression.Tags: 1st amendment, free speech, tsa
