Body Scanners

Ok friends and family. I can't hold still any longer. I've got to voice it somewhere, somehow. And I know, I could really bring up a stir between family members, but that's ok. I'm taking a stand.

And I'm not flying. Here's why.

first of all, WHAT IDIOT is going to pack a gun?
Come ON!

Do you have any naked pictures of your mother? No, want some? The TSA has some!”

I can’t believe people are standing for this. Now with the latest attempted terrorist attack of the “Fruit Of The BOOM” bomber they are trying to rush through the installation of these airport body scanners. These scanner are nothing more than mobile porn studios for the perverts at the TSA.

Here are some excerpts of an article here from the Daily Mail that describes what the full body scanners will be able to see.

New ‘strip search’ full body scanners being trialled in Australia will show people’s private parts, officials have admitted.

The X-ray backscatter body scanner has been described by critics as a “virtual strip search.”

Cheryl Johnson, general manager of the Office of Transport Security, said:’ It will show the private parts of people, but what we’ve decided is that we’re not going to blur those out, because it severely limits the detection capabilities. ‘

‘It is possible to see genitals and breasts while they’re going through the machine, though,’ she admitted

“It does see through clothing, but it’s not a photographic image, it’s a low-energy X-ray that reflects off the skin,” added Ms Johnson.

Oh really, is not a photographic image? OK, let’s do a little experiment. What we have done here is take a blurred out sample released by the press, not the high resolution pics these scanners actually take and just simply inverted the photograph
I think the picture speaks for itself. Remember this is with a blurred image, not the high res scan these machines actually take.

According to Cheryl Johnson,’The images are not saved, you literally walk through, the screener hits a button to say clear and the image goes.”

Oh really, the TSA agent has to push a button to clear it huh? Yeah, OK. That will happen I am sure.

What do you think one of these photos of Angelina Jolie or any other celebrity would go for on the market. You think these TSA agents will all be able to resist the temptation to make a few bucks?

Let’s face it, these people are not the brightest of the bunch. We have all seen them strip searching granny while a guy with a turban and sandals gets waved right through.

Here is another thing to think about. Does this count as child pornography? Would you let your child go through this scanner and have some pervert pedophile TSA agent viewing them and drooling on his keyboard?

There are so many ways to go with this. I read a story recently that parents were not allowed to bring cameras or take photos of their children at school sporting events to protect against pedophiles, but if it’s the government taking naked pictures of your kids, that’s alright?
I don't trust any of these people to "Delete" the pictures. Can you imagine a New Bureau the government will have to create to make the the people viewing the images "Safe to View?"
I'm sorry Mandy and Zane. I won't fly until I'm treated like an American, and NOT a terrorist. And yes, there are better ways.
What's next? Body Cavity Searches?
Let's take the scenario to the streets. How bout you just pull me over and feel me up and down whenever you feel like it while on patrol- so we can keep the streets free from car bombers? when will it stop?
Don't put it too far away. It may come.
