"News" piece on Nancy Oden of Jonesboro, who was temporarily detained and denied
"News" piece on Nancy Oden of Jonesboro, who was temporarily detained and denied the right to fly to a Green Party USA meeting in Chicago last week because she was allegedly uncooperative with authorities at Bangor International Airport. Oden admits she was balky and assertive during the inspection of her belongings and the "wanding" procedures that is used to search for metal beneath clothing, and that she resisted when a National Guardsman aggressively demanded her cooperation. But she also says the airline security staff was insolent and demeaning, and that the guardsman grabbed her arm and shouted in her face. Sally Sutton of the Maine Civil Liberties Union said the incident raises First Amendment-related questions about the federal Patriot Act.
