John Tyner's now-famous encounter with the TSA in San Diego over the body scanning machines and enhanced pat-down policy, including the video he shot.

John Tyner attempts to answer some common questions that showed up via e-mail and in the comments section of his original post on his TSA encounter in San Diego.

John Tyner answers his critics, noting that he's not opposed to airline security, rather the current methods of body scanning and enhanced pat-downs is ineffective and not where we should be putting our resources.

"The government, via the TSA, is saying that travelers can opt out of the protections afforded them by the U.S. Constitution. The problem with this is that there is no comparable alternative to flying for travel over long distances. By federalizing the security of all air travel, the government has severely limited (note that I do not say "removed") people's ability to move freely about the country by making them choose between air travel and their 4th amendment protections. Taken as a whole, the government is effectively removing the restrictions placed on it by the constitution by making it seem as though the people are willingly accepting the change..."

The federal government has inserted itself between two private parties involved in a business transaction, which just happens to be about traveling freely within the borders of one's own nation.

"If a plane was hijacked and crashed once per week, you would still be more likely to be killed driving to the airport to get on that plane. The takeaway from this should be that terrorism (in the air) just isn't that common."

Tyner notes that while we must take security of airliners seriously, the fears behind this particular security threat are really overblown.

Good overview of John Tyner's encounter with the TSA in San Diego. I would note that if it is indeed a violation of federal law and/or regulations to not finish the screening process once inside the security checkpoint, perhaps the TSA should make this information prominent outside each security checkpoint.

I would suggest you NEVER let the TSOs take you to a private room for screening. If there is absolutely no way to get out of it, do NOT go alone. Demand a travel partner go with you, or a member of local law enforcement. Never let it be your word against the TSA's.

Don't expect any help out of America's House of Lords any time soon.
