San Diego TSA Airport Screeners Out of Control … Passenger Arrested For Refusing TSA Screening, Parade Him Thru Airport in Underwear


TSA, the Audacity of Grope, San Diego Edition Part Deux:

The TSA is nothing more than a microcosm of Barack Obama and his Administration … a bunch of unqualified screw ups given power and abusing it. WTF AMERICA … THIS IS STILL AMERICA, ISN’T IT? The TSA and this government have totally lost focus on what airport security is supposed to do. IDIOTS, YOU FOOLS ARE TO CATCH TERRORISTS, NOT ARREST INNOCENT AMERICANS!!!

This time the TSA has overreacted and arrested  Sam Wolanyk, a San Diego resident, this weekend after he refused to complete the TSA screening process. Wolanyk then suffered the indignity at the hands of the TSA by being paraded through the airport in his underwear. Is this how the Obama/Napolitano TSA saves face for their screw up in letting the “underwear” bomber on a place last Christmas?

The TSA is out of control and some thing must be done before the Thanksgiving Day travel rush. If this continues, there is going to be mayhem this week. As stated at the Left Coast Rebel, from the airport that brought us, “Don’t Touch my Junk” comes the sequel … “Don’t Show us, We’d Rather Feel For Ourselves”.

In what can only be described as TSA handlers gone wild, the San Diego Harbor Police arrested an area resident for refusal to complete the screening/security process yesterday. This is the same airport that created the TSA security catch phrase“don’t touch my junk.” John Tyner of San Diego started the airport screening firestorm last week as Americans head into the busiest travel week of the year in the United States.

This time the defendant, Sam Wolanyk says he was asked to pass through the 3-D x-ray machine. When Wolanyk refused, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) personnel told him he would have to be patted down before he could pass through and board his airplane.

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

Was this really necessary for the TSA would look to further humiliate air passenger by parading him through two separate airport terminals in his underwear.

Once Harbor Police arrested Wolanyk, he was handcuffed and paraded through two separate airport terminals in his underwear to the Harbor Police office located inside a different terminal at the airport than Wolanyk had originally gone through during his TSA security process.

It gets even worse from the Banana Republican created by Barack Obama … the TSA confiscated the camera of the woman who filmed fiasco and arrested her.

      This has gotten totally out of control. I never in my lifetime expected to see this kind of thing happen in the United States of America. WAKE UP PEOPLE. We are having our rights & freedoms taken from us. This is not what our forefathers fought & died for. To be controlled like animals. This is America for crying out loud. Look what we are becoming at the hands of a mad-man hell bent on destroying everything that is great about America.

      For all those that voted for Obama, how is that hope & change working out for you as you are being groped at the airport while Muslims get a free pass? How is this protecting us?

      They need to issue the TSA people some brown shirts.

      @3 Michelle

      …Unfortunately, I hate to say this but it would be the same regardless of political party. The best way to counteract this deliberate demeaning and humiliation of the American people is to consider other methods of transportation.

      The fact that you actually PAY to go through that abuse is should be enough of a wake up call to take a bus, train or car to get to your destination.

      Profiling and bomb-sniffing dogs are 100 times more effective and a fraction of the cost as these invasive, health-risking and useless devices. Which makes me suspect that there is some politician’s friend and/or family making HUGE money with these contracts and making of these contraptions.

      That’s the answer, take more time and enjoy less stress by using another method of transportation. You do not need them as much as they need you…realize that and enjoy your life the way you, as an American, should, without being degraded and looked upon with suspicion.

      I am so saddened by this latest abuse of power by the Obama admin. Does the violation of our civil rights, including the 1st & 4th amendments mean anything to them?

    7. nurturer on November 22nd, 2010 5:26 am

      This is a by product of the Obama’s government politically correct, we-don’t want-to-offend-a-muslim, intrusive policies.

      Folks, it’s going to get worse before it gets better. These people, the leftists, never learn. That’s why they’re still leftist.

      This is what happens when you place poorly educated,untrained,and egotistical midgets in positions of authority and instruct them NOT to use what little common sense they may have.
      Harsh?? Not really – the screeners who humiliated innocent people while ignoring probable suspects (oh,almost forgot – we don’t profile) were not even repremanded or retrained. This is a job for mature people who have the ability to THINK.

      #8—You are 100% CORRECT!

    10. Flippy on November 22nd, 2010 5:20 pm

      Sorry, but this is another case of the dude asking for it.

      The guy refuses the x-ray machine (Okay, that is his right)….then he sets up his iPhone to record the video, and he (unprompted) strips to his underwear and refuses to get re-dressed.

      It was a stunt.

      The screening is being taken too far, but you also have people making small mountains into bigger mountains and that is just as sad as it clouds the truth.

    11. NGBoston on November 22nd, 2010 8:15 pm

      #10…Flippy—–Hmnnnnnnn…..interesting points you make.

      So-what do I do next time I want to fly?

      Get asked dumb questions, miss my flight, be detained because I would chose to:

      Refuse the XRay Full Body Scanner BS

      and also now most likely not submit to:

      A Pat Down, or other TSA Employee basically feeling me up and touching my private parts to make sure I am not a “Terrorist” and ready to board my next Business trip?

      I am really stumped on this one.

      What do you think I should do then, Flippy?

      Thanks in advance

      Well NGBoston, perhaps arrive earlier, maybe even a day or two and take Amtrak or Greyhound. Air travel isn’t a right.

      A damn pat down search or full body x-ray is certainly ‘reasonable’ even under the 4th Amendment.

      If you don’t like it, the rental car kiosk is that direction …
      SM: Well that’s big talk.

      Tell me this, when ever has a TES agent caught a terrorist? Because of your ignorant and uninformed commment above, airlines will probably lose a lot of business. Just what this economy needs to have happen.

      What is going to happen when this retroactive government is presented with a terrorist who has a bomb smuggled in like a drug mule? Are you going to be the first one in line for an anal cavity search? Hmm?

      All I can say is thank God Obama was not President when 9-11 unfortunately occured. He would have declared marshall law and rounded up all the white, elderly, pre-teen, boys & girls and those with bladder cancer and breast prosthesis and put them in detainment camps while the Mohamed Atta’s would be working the ticket desk for Delta or a TES agent.

    13. ChairLawyer on November 23rd, 2010 4:58 pm

      Dear R,those interesting assumptions in order,
      1. I have heard of no hijacking or blow up by terroism since DHS was created.
      2. A loss of “business” would be shifted to rental car companies, the gas stations, motel operators … heck Route 66 might be resurrected.
      3. A lower abdominal x-ray detects constipation. So a body scan will show plastique or malleable explosive in digestive trac, let alone colon.
      4. I fly a lot. And i’m in a wheelchair, TSA can search all they want. If they can articulate sufficient probable cause … bring on the cavity search.
      5. Pres. Bush was very close to invoking Martial Law. And rightly so. Temporary suspension of Habeus Corpus is an executive power held and recognized.
      6. Finally, a prosthetic (or wheelchair frame or pad) seems like a good hiding spot doesn’t it???

    14. NGBoston on November 23rd, 2010 9:23 pm


      While I appreciate your comments from a legal standpoint—want to object that you really glossed over my sincere statement about being confused.

      Security IS an issue and concern and there must be a viable and fair solution. I have nothing to hide either on my person or in my luggage, but you are missing my point.

      If I wanted to take a damn bus or rental car or train or other mode of transportation, I would.

      Flying by Air is a option I would like to continue to use. What the hell, Chair—even our Secretary of State claims she would not be comfortable with the “pat down”.

      And, there are many good hiding spots or EID’s or even crude homemade devices as witnessed in the past by the Shoe & Underwear Bomber’s attempts.

      P.S. Route 66 will never be the same, and what you and I consider to be “reasonable” under our 4th Amendment Rights may be 2 different things. Interpretation here is key.

    15. NGBoston on November 23rd, 2010 9:24 pm

      * “an option”

      * “for EID’s”

      You know i agree that the TSA and such is a bit messed up and should be revamped. Fire the lot of them and start over. I really have a hard time that this sort of drastic measure was ever actually needed.

      So when did the TSA get started? Let’s see what their website says, “We were created in the wake of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, to strengthen the security of the nation’s transportation systems. The Aviation and Transportation Security Act, passed by the 107th Congress on November 19, 2001, established our agency and gave it three major mandates:

      responsibility for security for all modes of transportation;
      recruit, assess, hire, train, and deploy Security Officers for 450 commercial airports from Guam to Alaska in 12 months; and,
      provide 100 percent screening of all checked luggage for explosives by December 31, 2002. []

      Hmm, now let’s check one more fact – When was OhBummer sworn into office? “The inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States took place on Tuesday, January 20, 2009. []

      So, if you want to report a story, leave out the misleading bits, otherwise some of will assume that you are a liar and can’t be trusted with Real Facts. The sad thing is, i probably agree with you on some many points. But we can’t let our biased hatred for an individual get in the way of truth. Otherwise, we are no better than the crooks and liars that we’re attempting to expose.

    18. Scared Monkeys on June 30th, 2012 9:12 am

      Blaming Bush again, eh?

      So programs that get worse and more misguided under the leadership, or lack there of, is the fault of some one else out of office. Seriously? This is why so many want Obama out of office, he takes credit for nothing that is negative that he made worse.

      I guess by your twisted reasoning since we began searching for Bin Laden in 2001 after 9-11 that GWB should get all the credit for his capture and death. Wow, thanks so much for praising W … after all it was the interrogation and water-boarding that got us key intel that brought us to other intel. Its nice to see a Bush hater actually give him credit for once. Nice, I like it.

      Also, I guess Obama needs to than Bush for the drone program to kill terrorists as well. Obama must just be sending thank you tweets daily to W.

    19. a thomas on June 30th, 2012 6:33 pm

      Blame Bush? Really? Is that what you took away from what i said? Let me try this from another direction – ohbummer may be in charge of a lot of stuff and is in fact doing a lot of things that are flat out bad, but to blame him for a program that predates him, is ludicrous. Should he change things with TSA? You betcha! Has he chosen to do so? Not that i know of and i agree he should put a stop to this crap Also! Will he choose to do so? I seriously doubt it. But he did not build this, he did not put it in place, he did not set the pace for where it would go and eventually became. If you want to blame someone for most of the crap that the TSA is doing, IMO you should look somewhere else.

      But hey, your welcome to your opinions and weather you agree with me or not, is not my problem. Like you, i too have an opinion and can also do research…
      SM: Really, how many programs, businesses, etc were set up with the best of intentions and then were ruined and run down hill by incoming management and Administrations? Really.

      So we are not allowed to blame Obama for anything that predates him even though he has made it worse? HAHAHA. Damn dude, I guess you have never been a consultant hired to fix a company. Every President takes over something that predates them and it is their job to either maintain or make better if it works or get rid of it and replace if its a failure. That is what leadership is.
