    Bad TSA Encounter - submit to "groin check" or no fly?

    Well, what would YOU do?

    Um, say: how about record it?

    TSA ejects Oceanside, CA man from airport for refusing security check

    John Tyner won't be pheasant hunting in South Dakota with his father-in-law any time soon.

    Tyner was simultaneously thrown out of San Diego International Airport on Saturday morning for refusing to submit to a security check and threatened with a civil suit and $10,000 fine if he left.

    And he got the whole thing on his cell phone. Well, the audio at least.

    The 31-year-old Oceanside software programmer was supposed to leave from Lindbergh Field on Saturday morning and until a TSA agent directed him toward one of the recently installed full-body scanners, Tyner seemed to be on his way.

    Tyner balked.

    He also did something that may seem odd to some, manipulative to others but fortuitous to plenty of others for whom Tyner is becoming something of a folk hero: Tyner turned on his cell phone's video camera and placed it atop the luggage he sent through the x-ray machine.

    Once he threatened to have the TSA agent arrested though, events turned surreal.

    A supervisor is heard re-explaining the groin check process to Tyner then adding "If you're not comfortable with that, we can escort you back out and you don't have to fly today."

    Tyner responded "OK, I don't understand how a sexual assault can be made a condition of my flying."

    "This is not considered a sexual assault," replied the supervisor, calmly.

    "It would be if you were not the government," said Tyner.

    "By buying your ticket you gave up a lot of rights," countered the TSA supervisor.
    Read the rest. Better, read his blog!

    ABP in the Social Lounge (an appropriate place), albeit with a more cryptic headline.

    Make it count ...

    ... I'd instruct them to provide me with their hottest, curvy, sultry female TSA agent they have.... then I'd tell her to "Make it count..."

    You do know what all TSA distaff operators did before being turned out by DHS? She won't be hot by any normal standards but she will make it count because that WAS her previous profession.
