Airport Passengers Bare All For Nude Scanners


www.examiner.com

've written before about the whole-body imaging scanners finding their way into the nation's airports. A relatively new innovation, they're theoretically being implemented in a way that give airline passengers a choice between ... well ... Honestly, a choice between offering TSA agents a peep show or a grope session at airport security checkpoints.

Hey, everybody wins -- as long as you're in uniform.

But even that unpleasant dilemma may be overstating the options available to travelers. Robyn Blumner, a columnist for the St. Petersburg Times, describes her experience returning to the U.S. from Europe through the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport:

Many airports are now using full body scanners to search airline passengers. It doesn't say how many millions of dollars these body scanners cost. They, presumably, are paid for through taxes. I'd like to know what is done with the nude photos after they're finished with them. I also wonder if this infringement of civil liberties applies to dogs and cats, too? After all, you don't know what could be hidden under that fur.

If I had my choice I'd take the pat-down, but I don't think I'll travel by air again soon.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

Personally, I think everyone should just show up nude at the airports.

I would just as soon paying passengers got to see my wrinkled old body as a bunch of poorly trained and poorly paid uniformed agents.




As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

Simple enough, if you are going to be scanned by one of their systems, get some aluminum tape and attach it to your body in long strips. Mess with them, don't answer their questions, if they detain you, just stare at them and drool ... and be sure to take the bus away from the airport so you can ride with them on their way home.

Always fly on Private Aircraft, from private airport to private airport, they cannot search you, they do not have the domain.

TSA = Terrorists Scrutinizing America

Sheesh..I don't even know what to say anymore. Seems like we've taken the idea of security a little too far...

I know this is going to anger some people, but I personally don't have a problem with being naked in front of anyone. I know others don't like it for whatever reason, insecurities and the like, so for them it's good to know that they have some form of alternative.

I could care less, personally, if my nude photos were published all over the internet. It doesn't really change who I am inside.

It is a matter of FACT that any terrorist organization that wants to do damage within the United States can do it, no matter what the FBI, the CIA or the DHLS and the TSA say. These people are incompetant morons who have not even the first clue on how to stop terrorism from happening. Look how they just pass it along their so-call chain-of-command. Any terrorist moron with the proper weapon available from their local CIA sponsored MS-13 salesman can commit an act of terrorism.

I have said it before, I will say it again, anyone in any major city can purchase fully automatic weapons, grenades, high explosives, rockets and other military equipment from local gang members.

When is the last time TSA went after Pacho and the locals? Why don't they invade Mexico and stop the crap where it originates?

Bones or boobs?

It's hard to tell from the little pictures that illustrate the article, though you can plainly see rear ends; the chest area is harder to see. The article compares them to "naughty" pictures of the 19th century.

This is just the beginning. Next PROBES. B.Y.O. Lube.

Don't worry, perhaps they will give us a free drink voucher for the plane ride and extra bag of nuts.

This is one of the systems in use. You won't see ANYTHING on these as far as nudity.
