If you ever want to strip down naked at Portland International Airport, congratulations theres now a legal precedent that puts you in the clear.
John Brennan, 50, was found not guilty this week over indecent exposure charges filed earlier this year.
On April 17, Brennan was attempting to fly out of Portland International in the state of Oregon when a routine security screening raised a red flag. After a TSA agent allegedly identified traces of nitrate on Brennans body, the would-be passenger stripped off his clothes in what he says was an act of protest.

What a stupid prosecution. The Supreme Court said a long time ago that nude dancing is protected “speech.” This guy’s protest actually had a political point to make, so to speak.
He could have made a stronger political speech had he passed wind in the TSA agent’s face.
Damned dirty hippy. Whatever his political point, stripping in a place where kids are should have earned him the loss of a few teeth. I’d support any father who knocked him out for exposing himself. Hate for the governmment and TSA takes a back seat to ths crap.

It is odd that they even thought to prosecute this guy as public nudity is quite legal in Oregon.
I disagree. I would simply tell my children, look at the state the Federal Gov't has now brought us to.
When is a 21 y/o female model going to do this?!? Why is it always some fat old dude?
“...stripping in a place where kids are should have earned him the loss of a few teeth...”
Oh please it’s not like he had an erection or was play with himself. I suppose you’ve shielded kids from viewing most classical art work as well? How about Michelangelo’s statue of David? Granted the guy isn’t in good enough shape but I think what he did is hilarious. Now if only a few really hot 18 year old women would do the same as I’m getting my gonads groped by the TSA while trying to get on a flight ....
He’s not entirely bare. He could be hiding something under that black rectangle on his bottom.
I was on a pleasure trip and was traveling in shorts. I was sent through the C U Nekked machine, which shows the screener dots representing places that need to be wanded. A dot appeared on my calf. The moron actually wanded my bare calf to see if I was concealing anything. True story.
I’d knock out the teeth of any father who took his kids to the airport where their nude bodies could be ogled at by the TSA.
This guy is gross. Yecch.
I would not want my child to see this man’s nude body either. ESPECIALLY if my child is a girl.
...but it was too late...She got a free shot!!!
Now thats funny raght there, I don care who ewe are...
That's discrimination against male lesbians (see Rush for the reference)! I think that it'd make for an interesting lawsuit - there's certainly more insane stuff out there than this.
