Seattle acquittal

This got very little coverage, but a man who was arrested last year for not showing his ID to the Albuquerque TSA (and then video-recorded them (see below)) was just acquitted of all charges. This is good news, but it is risky to rely on the judicial system to save you from the consequences of civil disobedience. Good for Phil Mocek for standing up for his rights and keeping his calm!
