Mocek Trial

What happens when you try to fly Southwest Airlines without showing ID?

Well, the TSA and the local police will deny you and toss you out of the airport, under a whole bunch of specious charges.

And what happens when you actually show up in court to fight?

You win. In a big way.

    He didn’t even have to testify.

    I love this part in particular:

    Despite calling themselves “officers”, TSA checkpoint staff are not law enforcement officers and have no police powers — and both TSA and police are fully aware of this. When the TSA calls for the police, they are just like any other civilians who call the police, and the police have no obligation to do what they ask. Police should not act, and have no right to act, in such a case, unless the police have a reasonable basis for believing that a crime has actually been committed or is being committed.
