Absolutely AGAINST this procedure on so many levels :
1 - It is unconstitutional; guilty until proven innocent, violates your person.
2 - The scanner DOES give you a dose of x-rays, granted a small amount, but you are further exposed to a higher then normal radiation in flight, and the scans DO show bones of legs / fingers.
3 - The scanner produces a high def view of a persons genitals and so photographing children in such a way violates child porn laws in many places
4 - IN cases of attempted plane bombings the perpetrator got around any security checks, and so putting people through this is senseless.
5 - The TSA agents are trained for SECURITY NOT as medical professionals dealing with radiation.
6 - Pat downs of the genitals over the clothes is a criminal misdemeanor, under the clothes is sexual assault.
7 - It's a tactic of humiliation and dominance.
8 - Sexual predators and felons are getting jobs at the TSA
9 - This is security theater
10 - "Who says it's gotta be a man to grab another man's privates, I would get a woman to do it and if she's ugly I can close my eyes and if I'm lucky I'll get a happy ending." - Gerald Celente
No, this MUST be challenged, even look at the circumstance surrounding these things getting put in place. Chertoff orders these machines and right at the time the order is ready for mass delivery and implementation of these systems, all of a sudden some retard gets past security with the help of a "sharp dressed man" who insists that they let him on the plane without credentials, and then in the news they say 'well, good thing that they just came out with this new machine to prevent people from trying to blow their balls off at 40000 ft. Then to top it off, once he's out of politics, Chertoff goes and gets a job running the company that makes the machines he bought with his political clout.Don't like the rules, don't fly
Oh, and don't fly... so what next, there's gonna be some lunatic strap a bomb to his chest in a mall somewhere and all of a sudden these body scanners gotta go into the malls??? Where does it end?? How much will YOU PUT UP WITH??? If they have to do an inspection of all your bodily cavities???
Or maybe you gotta go through the scanner to leave your house in the morning??
