Overnight, the unnamed woman who stripped at Denver International Airport has become Colorado's biggest celebrity, responsible for the most-viewed item on TMZ. The would-be traveler, who was taken to Denver Health for evalution, allegedly stripped down in protest after being told to put out a cigarette as she waited to board a United flight at DIA.
Butt seriously, folks...
The entire incident raises several questions for Don Scott:
In my opinion, she purposely lit up her cigarette knowing FULLY that security would be called to come have her put it out. She didnt do it at TSA because she would have been QUICKLY handcuffed and brought to a back room to wait for the police to arrive.
What would be interesting to me is if we find out later that one or more of the people who were taping or taking photos were involved with her in some way. Wouldnt that prove my point ?
Side Note : Didnt we just arrest two teens for transmitting unlawful nude content with their phones. Isnt taking photos and film of a nude adult (even if having an emotional breakdown) and sharing it without that persons permission a crime ? So shouldnt the people who OBVIOUSLY violated her right to privacy in this her weakest moment be charged ?
So whats the message we are sending here ? Its okay for this lady to BE NAKED in public IN FRONT OF CHILDREN , and its OKAY for us to film and photo it and transmit those photos. But KIDS DONT DO WHAT WE DO .... At least until you are 18 .....She should at least get a lewd and lascivious charge.
So what's the naked truth about the naked traveler? And what kind of mixed message is society sending? At least no one has connected this incident to the New World Order...yet. Read all about the strange stories connected to Denver's airport in "DIA conspiracies take off."
