    TSA ejects Oceanside man from airport for refusing security check

    SAN DIEGO — 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.

    He may not be the first traveler tossed from an airport for security reasons but he could well be the first to have the whole experience captured on his cell phone.

    During the next half-hour, his cell phone recorded Tyner refusing to submit to a full body scan, opting for the traditional metal scanner and a basic "pat down" -- and then refusing to submit to a "groin check" by a TSA security guard.

    He even told the guard, "You touch my junk and I'm going to have you arrested."

    That threat triggered a code red of sorts as TSA agents, supervisors and eventually the local police gravitated to the spot where the reluctant traveler stood in his stocking feet, his cell phone sitting in the nearby bin (which he wasn't allowed to touch) picking up the audio.

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

    (recorded exchange)...
    ...
    His father-in-law, a 40 year retired deputy sheriff can be heard pleading in the back ground for some common sense.

    Two hours later he wrote the whole experience up on his blog and posted the audio files to YouTube.

    You could say it has gone viral.

    That's bull**** that they were trying to force him to come back and finish the screening process when the other supervisers and workers told him to leave.

    TSA really shows what control and power freaks they can be even when it is their own fault.

    Now, now. Nothing wrong with a little civil disobedience.

    Then I don't suppose you would have signed the Declaration of Independence if you'd been around and asked to. They took more risk than this guy.

    Did you watch the video? If you have supervisors and workers telling you that you need to leave the screening area and then they tell you that because you listened to them you are subject to a $10,000 fine, how is the guy being the idiot?

    The guy refused the screening process (his right to), they told him that he needed to leave the airport (which he was complying), and then they are the ones that are continuing the idiocy by telling him he needs to go back and complete the screening.

    I hope the guy ends up suing TSA and winning.

    I learned a long time ago not to argue with coppers in the street. These people are the "next best thing." He's lucky he got his money back....nice of the airlines, actually, as I don't think he should have. TSA officers are doing their best to enforce very unpopular laws. They're doing it to keep us safe. If this jerk couldn't understand that and cut them a little slack, then he's an idiot. And I don't want him on my airplane.

    I can see that they may have wanted to question him further. Guy with bomb in his underwear refuses to be patted down at the checkpoint. They send him on his way, and he blows up the Ticket Counter. We'd all be shouting, "JFG!!!! They had 'im at at the checkpoint and they let him go??????

    It's not like he was trying to get out of a ticket. He has his first amendment rights.

    Re: TSA ejects Oceanside man from airport for refusing security check

    TSA is getting totally out of hand. I had the pleasure of watching them one day in a very long line Hartsfield-Jackson. I wouldnt trust these people running a hotdog stand much less the country security. I watched Arab looking persons walk through without any troubles yet the blue hair, Vegas bound, losing the retirement money grampma gets hassled. And the black guy in a suit that gets pushed around by some fat black your babies momma being a bitch to this dude because he worked his ass off to be where he is at and her fatass is on some power trip making 10 bucks an hour!

    I'll be in Chicago for a few days; I hope there aren't any TSA folks like this there.
