Man Protests TSA Harassment in Airport by Taking Off ALL of His Clothes
However after feeling harassed by Transportation Security Administration screeners on Tuesday, the 50-year-old man stripped all his clothes off in a protest that got him even more attention from airport screeners, national headlines and a stint in jail.
“I just took off my clothes and said ‘See, I don’t have any explosives,’” Brennan said. “The individuals at TSA are just doing their job and the whole organization needs to find a balance between safety and privacy. They use fear and intimidation and it’s got to stop somewhere.”
Oh, I bet they did.
Acts of protest like Brennan’s here, or the student with the rocking body arrested for stripping in front of airport security to reveal the Fourth Amendment scrawled across his toned and tanned chest, reveal what so many of us are experiencing – the increasingly hostile TSA experience, not the stripping.
It’s a bummer that Brennan was forced to endure a stint in jail for his act of civil disobedience, but isn’t it also a bummer that total strangers get to peek at your naked body on a screen in the name of security? Props to Brennan for keeping this ridiculous new part of the American experience in the news.
What do you think of Brennan’s naked protest?
