San Diego, CA – Refusal of Calif Airport Screening Is Internet Hit

    14

    San Diego, CA – A man who refused a body scan and pat-down search at a San Diego airport has become an Internet sensation in the debate weighing fliers’ security versus their privacy.

    John Tyner posted a cell phone audio recording of his half-hour encounter Saturday at Lindbergh Field.

    The software engineer couldn’t board a flight after refusing a full-body scan that reveals an image of what’s under his clothes. He also wouldn’t allow a Transportation Security Administration worker to conduct a groin check. Tyner tells the worker, “If you touch my junk, I’m gonna have you arrested.”

    Tyner’s blog says he left the airport — but only after being threatened with a lawsuit and fine for failing to complete security screening.

    A TSA statement Sunday said body scans and pat-downs make flying safer.
