When a San Diego man opted out of security screening using the Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) at Lindbergh Field Friday, he stripped down to his underwear in an attempt to avoid the pat-down procedures.But not indecent exposure. Everybody flying should strip down to speedoes and bikinis at every American airport.
Samuel Wolanyk took the protest started Nov. 13 by Oceanside's John Tyner to a whole new level.
Through a statement released by his attorney Sunday night, Wolanyk said "TSA needs to see that I'm not carrying any weapons, explosives, or other prohibited substances, I refuse to have images of my naked body viewed by perfect strangers, and having been felt up for the first time by TSA the week prior (I travel frequently) I was not willing to be molested again."
Wolanyk's attorney said that TSA requested his client put his clothes on so he could be patted down properly but his client refused to put his clothes back on. He never refused a pat down, according to his attorney.
Wolanyk was arrested for refusing to complete the security process and for recording the incident on his iPhone, according to his attorney. [NBC San Diego]
UPDATE: And then there's this story from St Thomas, US Virgin Islands -
Ryan Kulyik, a Schnitt Show listener, was traveling to Tampa from St. Thomas on Sunday, Novermber 21, when he entered the airport security line. As he approached the metal detectors, the listener noticed a man in his underwear standing next to baggage screening.
According to the listener, the man had set off the metal detector a number of times. It is unclear whether the TSA agent asked the man to remove the items from his pockets or to remove his pants.
