Had Refused To Show His ID At Albuquerque International
A jury in Albuquerque has found
Phil Mocek not guilty on counts of disorderly conduct, concealing
his identity, refusing to obey a police officer, and criminal
trespass, in a case in which he refused to show his ID to TSA
agents at the Airport.
According to the Seattle Post Intelligencer, Mocek had been
accused of "purposely testing the system" and recording the 2009
incident with his cell phone. He had refused to show his ID, and
did not leave the airport when ordered to do so by TSA agents.
The 37-year old software developer from Seattle told the
Albuquerque Journal that during his trial, representatives from
both TSA and the Albuquerque police department testified under oath
that you don't have to show ID to board an airplane, and that the
use of cameras in public places is not against the law.
