As one who finds this quite expected, we are being now alerted to abusive use of Airport Security Body Scanners, and expect MANY may find this concerning, due to the Naked Facts. BBC writes " Heathrow worker warned over body scanner misuse ".

And here it is. Human Nature vs Sensitive Training. Human Nature will always prevail.

A Heathrow Airport security guard was given a police warning after he was allegedly caught staring at images of a female colleague in a body scanner.

The 25-year-old worker was quizzed by police over alleged remarks he made to his co-worker after she entered a scanner by mistake.

The incident took place at Terminal 5 on 10 March.

It is believed to be the first time an airport worker has been disciplined for abusing a body scanner.

The scanners show clear outlines of passengers' anatomies.

And I would say it does.

It goes on with just what most people had "some" concerns about. PERVERTS

Susie Uppal, said

"It is only through appropriate training and monitoring that we can ensure that the risk of breaches of discrimination and human rights laws by those who take and use the scanned images of passengers are minimised.

"The government has told us very little about what systems are currently in place to ensure that those employed to use the scanners are acting lawfully, with fairness and without discriminating."

She added that the government needed to take urgent and decisive action to ensure that "incidents of this kind are not repeated".

So as a line in a movie goes, "So who's going to Monitor the Moniters?"

A Scotland Yard spokesman said:

"A first instance harassment warning has been issued to a 25-year-old male."

Well, how many 26 year old males have been warned or charged? Or is this just the First Ever Warning against Harassment Issued?

I hope it's the Later, but somehow feel this is ONLY THE BEGINING of these sort of stories.

Remember when spokespeople for this technology stated there are safeguards against misuse? What a load French bread! Toss this technology out the window, shoot it several times, and then pour industrial acid on it.

Its funny how our safety is dependent on minimum wage workers.
