    Default TSA to Investigate Body Scan Resister

    Check it out:

    http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/2...scan-resistor/

    The Transportation Security Administration has opened an investigation targeting John Tyner, the Oceanside man who left Lindbergh Field under duress on Saturday morning after refusing to undertake a full body scan.

    Tyner recorded the half-hour long encounter on his cell phone and later posted it to his personal blog, along with an extensive account of the incident. The blog went viral, attracting hundreds of thousands of readers and thousands of comments.

    Michael J. Aguilar, chief of the TSA office in San Diego, called a news conference at the airport Monday afternoon to announce the probe. He said the investigation could lead to prosecution and civil penalties of up to $11,000.

    TSA agents had told Tyner on Saturday that he could be fined up to $10,000.

    “That’s the old fine,” Aguilar said. “It has been increased.”

    I'll investigate the TSA if I ever get a chance. And more importantly the growing decline of personal, and civil liberty.

    Personally, I think the daily full-body scans of all the TSA workers should be a matter of public record.

    EDIT: Okay, not really. Still... a little sauce for the gander would be sweet indeed.

    Next time I fly, I'm tempted to wear a kilt and opt out of the scan. Surprise, surprise!

    I don't see any way out of it. You have to be scanned or groped. How pathetic is it that the guy was threatened with a fine if he left the 'holding room' without permission. Fuck that. He had committed NO CRIME.

    Yeah fuck TSA and all of the lame ass airport security waste of time.

    Its been almost 10 years since 9-11, are we not over the paranoia yet?

    This also reminds me that we are still wasting money and lives over in Afghanistan too. Grrrr, Ok that country let some nut jobs camp on their land and didn't instantly stomp them once receiving the command by the U.S.. OK, admittedly it was not the most prudent play but after about a decade and a executive administration later can we move on?

    When did overreaction become synonymous with being American?

    Before I go through the scanner I could offer to just pull my dick out if they want to see it that badly.
