Wolanyk won't stand down to the TSA

Individual rights activist (and hero), Sam Wolanyk, was arrested for wearing his skivvies to the airport. What is telling is that since he refused the scanner, he should have gotten a pat-down by the TSA. According to the TSA's own policies, there are no minimum standards for dress at a checkpoint. But the TSA at SAN refused to give him a pat-down. Instead, they made him miss his flight and had him arrested. It is pretty clear because the TSA agents didn't like dealing with a non-submissive passenger.
