The TSA Overlords strike back

It’s pretty hard to read this as anything but pure vindictiveness and intimidation on the part of the Transportation Security Agency:

The Transportation Security Administration has opened an investigation targeting John Tyner, 31, the Oceanside man who was ejected from the San Diego International Airport on Saturday morning after refusing to undertake a full body scan and, subsequently, a pat-down body search. . . .

Michael J. Aguilar, chief of the TSA office in San Diego, called a press conference at the airport Monday afternoon to announce the probe. The investigation could lead to prosecution and “civil penalties” of up to $11,000, he said.

Called a press conference? You’ve got to be kidding me. The good news is that the TSA seems to be doing its best to bring the Left and the Right together.  ..bruce w..
