Government photo of Aaron Tobey being held at Richmond International Airport on December 30

 

A 21-year-old Virginia man who wrote an abbreviated version of the Fourth Amendment on his body and stripped to his shorts at an airport security screening area is demanding $250,000 in damages for being detained on a disorderly conduct charge.

Aaron Tobey claims in a civil rights lawsuit (.pdf) that in December he was handcuffed and held for about 90 minutes by the Transportation Security Administration at the Richmond International Airport after he began removing his clothing to display on his chest a magic-marker protest of airport security measures.

“Amendment 4: The right of the people to be secure against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated,” his chest and gut read.

The University of Cincinnati student didn’t want to go through the advanced imaging technology X-ray machines that are cropping up at airports nationwide. Instead, when it was his turn to be screened, he was going to opt for an intrusive pat-down — and remove most of his clothing in the process.

Ya, Tara, if a half a dozen more brave young men and a few gals too, would stand up and be counted we might just beat down the TSA a peg ot two.

 

America should be proud of this young fellow, I am.

It would serve them right over at TAS if he won the settlement he has asked for.

Wouldn't it be great if everyone did this?  Way to go, Aaron.  But frustratingly you see from the comments in the link there's still those who think the TSA is keeping them safe and that Aaron is an idiot.

Yes it would be great Nikki! We need many more good men and women to step up to the plate and do the same as this ballsy young man did. We might truly see change occur if enough people demanded their rights by protesting in this fasion.

I too read the comments in the original article and was surprised that so many people still want to gullibly believe that the TSA is there to protect us and blindly welcome tyranny into their lives because they'd rather feel safe than live freely. They are the true idiots. The young man to me is a hero.

Judge sides with TSA vs. naked man

Man who stripped naked as a personal protest against security screenings found guilty in civil case filed by TSA. | [He] faces a $500 fine.

excerpt

Now, two years later, a judge has sided with the TSA. Brennan faces a $500 fine.

"I will not pay a fine to make this go away," he said.

Brennan plans to appeal.

"I didn't take off my clothes to pay a fine," he said. "I took them off to make a point."
