Gilmore's Flight Stunt Revisited
posted by mpawlo on Wednesday July 30, @02:43PM
from the badges-everywhere dept.
Civil Liberties Mr John Gilmore was rejected from a flight because Mr Gilmore wore a badge saying “Suspected Terrorist”. Should the flight captain have ejected Mr Gilmore because of the button or not? The discussion has been heated, not least since Mr Seth Finkelstein suggested that Mr Gilmore's behaviour was 'a millionaire’s version of trolling.'

Follow the discussion - currently going on in the comments field at the Lessig blog - and make up your own mind. Is this an issue of security, civil liberties or neither?
