TSA airport screeners gone wild in San Diego- again
examiner.com ^ | November 20th, 2010 6:19 pm PT | Kimberly Dvorak

Posted on 11/21/2010 10:00:04 AM PST by RagingBull

Wolanyk said he knew what was coming and took off his pants and shirt, leaving him in Calvin Klein bike undergarments.

“It was obvious that my underwear left nothing to the imagination,” he explained. “But that wasn’t enough for the TSA supervisor who was called to the scene and asked me to put my clothes on so I could be properly patted down.”

...

The incident was confirmed by Harbor Police Sergeant Rakos who said Wolanyk was arrested on two misdemeanors, “failing to complete the security process; violation code 7.01 and illegally recording the San Diego Airport Authority (they confiscated his iPhone); violation number 714 (2).”

If they still wanted to pay him down after seeing him in underwear, that absolutely raises questions of sexual deviancy.

There's an idea for a new Calvin Klein ad!

Illegally recording?? If this is a new law, it's time for the courts to look at this.

Search and seizure....

Who in their right mind would fly out of SF with all the homosexuals working for the TSA there?

No doubt those who record these atrocities will be doing jail time soon. That’s the way Communists so things.

When people are fed up enough and really want to stop this egregious invasion, they will.

All we need do is stop flying! Cancel reservations, drive, take the bus or train and as profits dry up for the Airlines, they will demand and force a correction to this insanity.

As long as we continue allowing it and saying nothing, other than expressing disdain, it will continue.

Stop flying and it won’t take long for the Airlines to cause a correction.

Interesting read. One of his citations was for recording the interchange. And another woman was also cited for attempting to videotape. Her camera was confiscated. Hmmm, what does that feel like?

If anyone has ever wondered how the Nazis found so many men willing to do the work of the concentration and death camps, they need look no further than the ranks of the TSA. Our problem is far too many Americans are willing to accept these depravations at the hands (literally) of the state.If we don’t, as a people, stand up and say NO MORE, how long will it be until the hand in the groin become a hand turning the key on a cell door for those who don’t comply with the state?

I'm not going to defend the TSA or the San Diego Police. But I think we should choose our "martyrs" carefully. Just as I am distrustful of lefties who put themselves into confrontation with authority, I am similarly distrustful of people who would appear to be on my side who provoke. These are people who would get a hard time from Israeli type security also. Their stories are probably not exactly as depicted.

That's what the article comments said.

It was obvious he didn't have anything hidden, which should have been the object of the procedure. TSA wanted him to put his clothes back on to do the pat down. Makes one question the sexual deviancy angle, as you say.

The comments also said this guy sued and won an open carry case. It sounds to me like this was planned.

The question of whether law enforcement will side with us or the government when the time comes has been answered.

They stand with the government against We the People.

Indeed he did. Fact is that the TSA has stepped completely over the line, the reductio ad adsurdum of a policy that away from profiling because it is politically incorrect.

If our constitutional rights are not defended, we lose them. This man chose to stand up for his. I like his chances. He formerly sued San Diego for open carry false arrest and won. He was not provoking "the system" at that time, he was standing up for his constitutional rights; it was a police officer(s) who tried to deny him his.

Here's his story about the previous arrest. Open Carry false arrest costs San Diego $35,000 - Part 1 He's using the same lawyer. Should be interesting.

The airlines can't do anything about this.
It's a federal law - the only ones who can put a stop to it are Congress.
They had their chance last week and listened to the weasle TSA king and did nothing.

Basically, we're screwed. No commercial flying.

I flew to San Diego last spring and remember thinking there sure wwere a lot of TSA agents and they were not particularly friendly looking....there were number of them at the arrival gate?!?!

—I remember wondering if they were looking for someone...now I am wondering if they are told to look menacing and make the passengers uncomfortable....Anyone else notice this about San Diego?

I have been musing what if a person had one of these ‘fart’ blowers concealed in the crotch or buttocks area and when the TSA person got close for looking for it the blower could could be activated, add a little H2S for kicks.

Not at all good enough for the TSA. See, when people strip down first, the passenger to some degree has taken matters into his own hands (no pun intended). This is all about control...the TSA wants to TELL you what to do and when to do it. Independence is outlawed.

Good idea.

Let’s also start profiling presidential candidates.

We can look for those with birth certificates and let them run for the nomination and and eliminate those who don’t meet constitutional qualifications to serve.

Doesn’t matter if it was planned anyway, the other side does this stuff all the time (Reichstag fire?). Any possible thing we can do to roll back Communism, including using their playbook, could turn out well for the country.

Like I said, it calls into question the state of mind of the TSA employees. You obviously can’t hide anything when you’re standing there in underwear. Then they have the gall to tell the guy to put his clothes back on so they could touch every square inch of his body? It goes far beyond just being wrong.

I see they have now made it illegal to record the search as well so you cannot prove what they did to you or your kids. Maryland tried this with general police stops and recently lost in court. I would hope this will be rulled an illegal abridgment, but I can already hear the security argument that they cannot allow anyone to record their process.

I know, how stupid is that???!!! "We can't pat you down, unless you have clothes on." lol

They also escorted/paraded him through two airport terminals in his undies, after arresting him, and he was still not "officially" screened! oh-la-la....these TSA agents and the local deputies involved are complete imbeciles!

By doing that, they've admitted he's no security risk; this is punishment for not following "orders".

The Airlines CAN do something about this. They can pressure the individual airports to opt-out of TSA coverage, and have the airports hire contractors just like before the tsa existed.

This way they can have some say in who is working there and how customers are “handled”.

Airports don’t want to work with the airlines?, not a problem, move their operations to more customer friendly airports.

Powell also stated that there was another arrest of a woman who was allegedly illegally filming the x-ray, and TSA screening process with a video camera. The young woman’s camera was confiscated and she was given a citation and released from Harbor Police custody.

Now it's "illegal" to film the public abuse of American citizens? One has to wonder what will be the next level in this escalation of intimidation.

As long as we protest they will continue to up the ante. We can bet the house on that.

Did you read this comment on the story? It looks as though this guy is creating the first test case against the TSA. He's going to make some big money.

Is this the same Sam Wolanyk who won a lawsuit against San Diego for falsely arresting him for Open Carrying?

Millimeter and backscatter scanning machines are not installed in all airports that fly into major hubs, and as far as I know, the mandatory pat downs are not necessarily required where the scanners are not installed.

So the question is, as with the border, if it's not locked down everywhere, then what good is pat-downs in some places?

The terrorists will just go to the TSA website and drive to a "no-scanner-yet" airport.

Then fly to JFK or wherever and voila: 911,000! (Team America Reference...)
