Exactly "why" was he charged with disorderly conduct?
Airport police said the man took off his shirt and pants at Richmond International Airport on Thursday. He had scrawled across his chest a reference to the Constitution's 4th Amendment protections against unreasonable search and seizure.
Police identified the man as 21-year-old Aaron B. Tobey of Charlottesville, Va. He told police he was a student at the University of Cincinnati.
Tobey was interviewed by airport police and federal authorities, issued a citation for disorderly conduct and released. He is scheduled for arraignment on Jan. 10. [Associated Press]
So, what was disorderly? If we - any of us - dramatize stupidity (and unconstitutional searches), are we "disorderly?" We have a right to free speech, but we get charged with crimes for exercising it?
