Naked Portlandian man protests TSA screening injustice through nakedness - Boing Boing
"A bearded gentleman in Portland, Oregon who was upset about being "harassed by airport security" took off all of his clothes while in the TSA screening lane Tuesday evening. He was arrested, taken to jail, and held on $4,000 bail." - Bluesun 2600 from Bookmarklet
I'm a little confused. I know for a fact, in Portland, public nudity is not illegal. It only becomes so if it is done in a sexual manner. Famously, their is a woman who bikes around town all the time nude and there is an annual nude bike ride. I might see a problem if they view PDX as private property. - Bluesun 2600
Do airport follow federal guidelines or state ones? I doubt they follow local ones. - Shevonne
I don't know if there's a commercial airport left in US that is public property. So 99.9% chance it's private property owned and run as a business as all other airports are. - Steve C
Even if run privately, they have to adhere to regulations. Just not sure to what extent - Shevonne
Ok, I'm not the only one here in Portland wondering about this. I just listened to podcast that had a discussion towards the end of their show about this. And how he could be charged with indecent exposure. (Funemployement Radio Ep. 602 1:32:00 or -20:06 in their web player: http://funemploymentradio.com/) - Bluesun 2600
