Hey everyone! I don't know if this is a repost, and if so, sorry in advance. But I just saw this and had to post it.


The Phoenix airport on Friday became the first in the United States to test new X-ray technology that can see through people's clothes and show the body's contours with blush-inducing clarity.

Critics have said the high-resolution images created by the "backscatter" technology are too invasive. But the Transportation Security Administration adjusted the equipment to make the image look something like a line drawing, while still detecting concealed weapons.


Here's the link:

I CANT wait till (or if) it's available for civilian use. Imagine the possibilities!
(PS- That's a joke
)

Oh yea... How do I get my picture on here? As a signaturE?

Every pedophile will be saving up money to get one of these machines or bribing the security guards to get all the pictures.


At last we have succeeded in total porn.

I think it's a disgusting violation of our Constitutional rights. This machine directly violates the Fourth Amendment:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Americans are held hostage by their own government under the guise of fighting terrorism by the use of domestic terrorism. What else would you call such a scan of your person? They should rename it X-Rape

At what price? The destruction of the freedoms that make this country what it is, or rather, was. It isn't worth the annihilation of our way of life.

We should bring all our troops home, protect our own soil properly, pay off our debts, and let the rest of the planet do what it will. The US can survive on its own if it makes the effort to do so. It was great in the past and it can be great again.

but we are already a democracy.

we are free.


pedophiles will be free to buy the new handheld battery operated terrahertz scanners machines next year so they can see naked kids in the street.
in shopping malls..in schools.

and dont forget the naked muslim women too!

"Because of terahertz radiation's ability to penetrate fabrics and plastics it can be used in surveillance, such as security screening, to uncover concealed weapons on a person, remotely..... Some controversy surrounds the use of terahertz scanners for routine security checks due to the potential capability to produce detailed images of a subject's body through clothing" wiki link.

we will be a porners paradise of the world.

now not that I agree with it...but something tells me when that amendmant was written these sort of technologies werent even dreamt about yet... As technologies develope and change our lifes [for the better] certain rights will have to be adjusted accrodingly. We cannot live in the past. That will only hold us back. Plus you get a free peep show
Just watch who you aim that device at.

Although this is getting a bit closer to the edge, no need to freak out just yet.

From the article:


During the testing, the machine will be used only as a backup screening measure. Passengers who fail the standard screening with a metal detector will be able to choose between the new device or a pat-down search.

"It's 100 percent voluntary, so if the passenger doesn't feel comfortable with it, the passenger doesn't have to go through it," TSA spokesman Nico Melendez said.


So as long as it remains voluntary, I don't really see a problem. It's meant as an alternative for people that don't want to be touched all over if they can't make it through the metal detector without setting it off.

Personally, I'd find it tempting to rig up some sort of extension to give them a good show.

Take THAT, Ron Jeremy!

e'g...anthoer terror attack...

or simple cost saving...

Although I accept that as a possibility, I can't really see a motive for doing so. Whatever it may be, I don't really believe it would be worth the reaction to making something such as this mandatory for every passenger.

When someone fails a normal security check they have to bring the person aside and assign a staff member to fully check them, this uses up time and resources. Also, if you do a quick search you can find many articles speaking of people's objections to pat-down searches, some even going as far as claiming sexual harassment. So as I said in my previous post, this would be an alternative choice. Whether it's a better choice or not is up to the individual, and it would be a faster choice at that.

So, I wouldn't say that I am "easily hoodwinked," but rather that I just keep a calm and open mind about something that can be potentially helpful to both the airports and the passengers. Just about any sort of progress can be used for the wrong reasons, but that doesn't mean we should stop progress all together (at least in my opinion).
