    This guy needs to do a hell of a lot more than file a complaint. He needs to sue the fucking shit out of TSA. Every day we are hearing about more and more abuses.

    If you don't want to be searched, try to dress Muslim like.

    That reminds me of a certain other quote:

    "Those who would give up Essential Liberty, to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

    Traveler who resisted TSA pat-down is glad his moment of fame is nearly over
    Software engineer John Tyner's challenge—'If you touch my junk I'll have you arrested'—has become a rallying cry for air travelers upset at invasive new screening procedures.

    November 19, 2010|By Catherine Saillant, Los Angeles Times

    John Tyner knows he's at minute 14.5 of his headlong rush into the national spotlight. And he couldn't be happier.

    An audio recording capturing Tyner's don't-touch-my-junk showdown with San Diego airport security screeners a week ago brought the software engineer instant celebrity. His story has been featured on all the major news and late-night comedy shows. Bloggers have alternately praised and excoriated him.

    A "Don't Touch My Junk…and Don't Touch My Kid's Junk, Either" T-shirt is reportedly selling quickly on the Internet. So are other commercial products using Tyner's widely-heard challenge to a Transportation Security Administration screener: "If you touch my junk I'll have you arrested."

    This guy is the best! I read about him early last week and I hope everyone else says the same. What I've seen really isn't a pat down, it is disgusting and I hope people stop flying because of it.

    (And have the agent arrested)

    I would say "Unbelievable!" ... but then I'd be lying.

    I'm for profiling.

    Just not on the basis of ethnicity. Or religion.
