tonguedepressor: Ask a guy who's worked for TSA 8.5 years anything.
Amusement: The descending judge offered up a failed view by striking out at the young man for using up TSA resources at a time of need. For fark sakes, it was TSA decision to detain and arrest. TSA could have said "oh how funny" and then proceeded to let him go.
cowgirl toffee: What the hell is "Amendment HI"?
namatad: Kraftwerk Orange: He didn't cause a scene. The TSA agents did. They should have searched him, and finding him harmless, let him continue on his way.THISInstead, they broke the law and falsely arrested him. The TSA/government will settle out of court, unless the kids sticks to wanting 250k, hell they might even pay that is they can get him to sign an NDA.YAY, TSA wasting more of our tax payer dollars.
blottoman: He looks like a young superman...[league.jmkprime.org image 802x600]/4 the ladies
Aussie_As: I am a bit astonished at the farkers calling this guy a douche or attention whore for making a legal and peaceful protest. It would appear that by THEIR definition Rosa Parkes and the entire civil rights movement were very douchy and the American Revolution was just attention whoring in the eyes of these clowns./or maybe they just REALLY like the patdowns and body scans
eggrolls: Call me when TSA actually catches a terrorist.10 years with a ZERO success rate. What other federal agency would survive with that kind of record?
danno_to_infinity: nice but he'll never fly again.
snocone: lohphat: And the home...of the....braaaaave!/ashamed of a country whose response to terror was pants-shiatting capitualtionThe French still do it better.TSA MUST DIE!
fredklein: bluefox3681: He was detained because he took his clothing off ....That would get you at least a disorderly conduct pretty much in any public area.Arrest these people!![cdn01.cdn.justjared.com image 850x800]and these:[images.fineartamerica.com image 850x566]and all these:[i.dailymail.co.uk image 850x534]

david_gaithersburg: A true Tea Party Patriot.
Philbb: If you want to travel by horse back you can.
ExcaliburPrime111: He was briefly detained, screened, and did not miss his flight.
jtown: His behavior did nothing to further the cause of freedom.
UsikFark: Oznog: "According to the suit, while under interrogation, the authorities wanted to know 'about his affiliation with, or knowledge of, any terrorist organizations, if he had been asked to do what he did by any third party, and what his intentions and goals were.'""I want to sail around the world in a schooner. Nike told me they would sponsor me if I agreed to do this stunt, and if I agreed to sail shirtless with the Nike logo tattooed over my rippling shoulders. Have you ever been in a Turkish prison? I want to be washed by another man..."
LessO2: tonguedepressor: Ask a guy who's worked for TSA 8.5 years anything.Do you like movies about gladiators?
moothemagiccow: FTFJudge: Tobey's antics diverted defendants from their passenger-screening duties for a period, a diversion that nefarious actors could have exploited to dangerous effect.What's the line, again? "Shouldn't you be out catching bad guys?"
FTFA:In dissent, Judge J. Harvie Wilkinson wrote:
Had this protest been launched somewhere other than in the security-screening area, we would have a much different case. But Tobey's antics diverted defendants from their passenger-screening duties for a period, a diversion that nefarious actors could have exploited to dangerous effect. Defendants responded as any passenger would hope they would, summoning local law enforcement to remove Tobey-and the distraction he was creating - from the scene.
ZAZ: He didn't win the case. He survived a motion to dismiss on grounds of qualified immunity.
