    Now there's another concern. What about kids? Do they have to go through this, too? And what are parents' rights?

    I get grown ups dying in plane crashes, but what about kids?

    OK...thats probably not very clear...but listen...dead knows no age or race when it comes to terror acts. And I can promise you...if a terrorist is committed to blowing up a plane and knows that he or she can use his or her child to accomplish that mission (ala the terrorists in England that plotted to bring down a jetliner using things smuggled in baby bottles) and if they know that kids arent being fully security scanned...well...seriously...do you think concern over an x-rayed version of your childs junk trumps that reality?

    And really...for the luvamike...what they hell are people so concerned about? If some fruitbag gets off on looking at an xray and we are so paranoid that on the off chance someone might see us underneath it all...seriously...who has the problem? We are entirely too self conscious about our bodies...

    That's not realistic. Not all airport security procedures are a waste of time.

    Almost all the extra stuff piled on by TSA after 9.11 and the continued increase in crap we have to put up with is all a waste of time. So much so that TSA is more about wasting time more than it is preventing anything "bad" from happening.

    I agree with you on the post 9/11 stuff. But still, you can't completely remove all security procedures, especially the systematic scanning of all checked and carry on baggage.

    And yet we have seen in other countries that bad stuff is happening. I would much rather our TSA continue to hone their practices...maybe get rid of some of the garbage but increase security measures more efficiently and be a little bit inconvenienced (I fly about 30 times a year-I am directly impacted by their procedures) then the alternative which is become complacent and allow something bad to happen. I think the mere knowledge that they are there and working on new procedures has prevented some people from even trying the terrorist actions.

    We weren't without security before. Sure you can tighten up some things as well, but what we've done with TSA has done little to nothing for our safety and everything for extending the time we're at the airport. There is nothing reasonable about the TSA, and seriously look at who they are hiring. These aren't trained security agents, they're just rubes off the street. We are no more safer with TSA than we are without it.

    Oh, I'm with you on all of that. The airports I fly the most out of are JFK, EWR and ROC and I have to agree that I often question the training of the TSA agents at the first two. They seem much more professional at ROC, tho. No complaints there. I'm just saying that completely abolishing the department is a little drastic.

Also deleting said HDD at the end of each day helps. Yeah, it could happen, but it is not a big enough risk to not have them implemented because of this.
    Really???


    Look at this article...

    Exposed: Naked Body Scanner Images Of Film Star Printed, Circulated By Airport Staff

    Claims on behalf of authorities that naked body scanner images are immediately destroyed after passengers pass through new x-ray backscatter devices have been proven fraudulent after it was revealed that naked images of Indian film star Shahrukh Khan were printed out and circulated by airport staff at Heathrow in London.
    Within days of the devices being introduced at Heathrow, staff have abused their professionalism and printed out naked scans of a famous actor for their own titillation.
