+ - Refusing to show ID and recording TSA is legal-> 1

Submitted by Cowmonaut
Cowmonaut (989226) writes "TechDirt is reporting that Phillip Mocek has been acquitted by a jury. For those of you who do not know, Mocek refused to show his ID to the TSA to board a flight, as his legal right. The TSA disputed this and charged him with four misdemeanors (disorderly conduct, concealing his identity, refusing to obey a police officer, and criminal trespass) when he persisted and recorded the incident. It's sad that its news when someone stands up to something as basic as the TSA thuggery, and more depressing that its news when its upheld in court."

    Precedent has been set for reclaiming individual rights from the government by small acts of refusing to comply with stupidity. Refusing to comply with the TSA isn't that far removed from refusing to move to the back of the bus.
