Hours after being released from jail, a man walked through an emergency door at San Diego International Airport, onto the tarmac and sat down on a United Express plane Tuesday, according to San Diego authorities.
"He completely bypassed TSA screening," San Diego Harbor Police Chief John Bolduc said. "He was in a public area and went out an emergency fire door, which gave him access to the tarmac."

This was no accident. It will be used to institute even more draconian measures. Wait and see.
The flight attendant realized she had too many passengers, Nicholas Blasgen, a passenger on the plane told CNN affiliate KGTV.
"They said, 'What is your count?' She said this is my count, and they said that is wrong."
The passengers got off the plane and their luggage was searched. "They had us put all the bags out, they separated the bags by enough distance and had the dog go over everything," Blasgen said.
Duncan was identified and arrested.

How much more money, and how many more personal freedoms is it going to take? The Patriot Act, NDAA, and the TSA are abysmal failures and have cost us our liberties, and billions of dollars. But hey, if it only saves one person it'll be well worth it. Right?
"The guy did breach security, but he was caught," Bolduc said. "We have multiple layers of security built into our airports, as you know, and the backup systems were able to catch this guy."
