Nude TSA Protest Ruled Constitutional

07.19.12 09:01 PM

The man who protested the Transportation Security Administration in the nude in April has been found not guilty.

As a way of protesting the TSA’s intrusiveness, John Brennan got naked to prove he wasn’t carrying a bomb. He was arrested after the stunt.

But at a trial Wednesday, Brennan was found not guilty of public indecency. The judge ruled that Brennan’s act was done as a protest, and a protest is protected under the Constitution.

Brennan took the stand and argued his case: “I know the irony of taking off my clothes to protect my privacy. They’re getting close to seeing us naked, so I thought I’d up the ante.”

In an earlier interview, Brennan noted: “The machine went off, and I asked what it was and he said ‘nitrates’ which I know from Oklahoma City is one of the explosive ingredients, and I was not interested in being hassled so I took off my clothes to show them I was not carrying any explosives.”

Brennan is not off the hook just yet. TSA is still investigating him to see if he interfered with the screening process.
