I've just read this article saying that the US Marshals Service has admitted to saving thousands of images from full body scanners. This is sickening.

Didn't they say explicitly that they wouldn't be saving these images?? Or did I miss a news report?




Despite claims by the TSA that electronic body scan images "cannot be stored or recorded," some federal police agencies are in fact saving tens of thousands of images, according to a report by CNET News. The body scanners, increasingly found in airports, courthouses and other places where security is high, use an assortment of technologies. These include millimeter wave scanners (shown below) — in which the subject is harmlessly pelted with extremely high frequency radio waves which reflect a picture back to the device — and backscatter X-ray (shown above) — which measures low-powered reflective X-rays to produce clearer body shots, shots that can reveal alarmingly precise anatomical detail. According to CNET, the U.S. Marshals Service admitted this week that it had saved thousands of images that had been recorded from a security checkpoint in a Florida courthouse.

While Im sickened that this is going on I must ask what do these images look like? Are they what I'm thinking showing like bones and muscles or does it display the flesh and people can be seen naked? Either way this is disgusting and sad

I knew they were lying from the start. The government, at any level, produces nothing that it will never get rid of. You want a record from 100 years ago, it's in a box somewhere.

Why would anyone think otherwise....

It's for biometric scans so the scanners and cameras any where can track people from that data.
and for looking at naked children too.
The police state types go in for that sort of thing
makes it all worth while for them..
Remember the Franklin savings and loan scandle, boys town?

Funny about people who put Jones down, he was saying this for some time now...

Also something he pointed out today:
the screeners
apparently aren't well shielded from the repetitive doses of radiation...
so the scans might be around longer than the people who took them

Yeah, yeah and they get rid of the fingerprints from people that have been exonerated too.

Well technology is as harmful to man as it is beneficial, really. Here is a prime example of that. Perhaps with each new miraculous machine created, or promising new scientific discovery, we can anticipate the human race will be even more trivialized, so that when the new world order finally sets in, anyone who is following orders will have no problem pulling the trigger, or offing the head of a potential enemy of the state. After all, whats life worth anymore?

sorry for the long run on sentence, but it is that time of the night, so you know....

'Not a fan of Alex Jones, but here is his Info Wars site with an article and image of what what is revealed. About as naked as you can get.

Those pictures are not real. Somewhere here on ATS someone found the stock photo site those pics came from. I will admit there is a great deal of detail in the real scans, they look nothing like this Alex Jones crap and the fact that he still has that up after all this time is kind of sad.

What a surprise. The government lied about the degree to which they violate our trust and our privacy.

These scanners are a shame. They have little kids on no fly lists,

www.fox8.com...


"The very idea of a 6-year-old on a no fly list is mind boggling," said the Congressman speaking via video conferencing from his office in Washington D.C., "I immediately got on the phone and called Homeland Security and let them know this is unacceptable."


and yet they let people they should be suspicious of;

en.wikipedia.org...


His father made a report to two CIA officers at the U.S. Embassy in Abuja, on November 19 regarding his son's "extreme religious views",[61][80] and told the embassy that Abdulmutallab might be in Yemen.[81] Acting on the report, Abdulmutallab's name was added in November 2009 to the U.S.'s 550,000-name Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment, a database of the U.S. National Counterterrorism Center. It was not added, however, to the FBI's 400,000-name Terrorist Screening Database, the terror watch list that feeds both the 14,000-name Secondary Screening Selectee list and the U.S.'s 4,000-name No Fly List.[82] Abdulmutallab's U.S. visa was not revoked as well.[68]

Because they are incompetent, (or devious, which is my belief, that they allow these things so they have excuses to be invasive and coerce us to accept that) we have to pay the price? Because it would be too much to expect that all the billions upon billions of dollars we funnel to their secret club house be used effectively?

It utter rubbish. And the fact that Americans are willing to give up their privacy rather than insist that their public servants do their jobs properly makes me ashamed of us.

what a surprise

pedophiles and others are masturbating right now with your naked picture

this will probably will end up LEAKED, but no to wikileaks, but to some porn website, and when goes online, it never dies

If they are saving them for a slide show night down at the station then they have pretty boring lives ,if they want to look at bones and make clever comments like"check out the coccyx on that one"then at least it keeps them off the streets.Mental problems i think

Thats exactly what I'm talking about with the "trivialization of life" You simply degrade the value of humans so much that it becomes all about your pleasure..
Simply no respect at all, use them and throw them aside, truly sad

It's a travesty, I knew they were going to save the images. Then compile them into a master database. "They" already know a lot about millions of people. Your cat-scans and x-rays tracking you by your cell phone and the street cams.

There is a pattern here that will eventually lead to mandatory mini lie detector tests at all airports during the normal "business or pleasure" conversation.

The "war on terror" encompasses every single aspect of life.

Yes, they did. But they lie about everything.

I found the idea of them not saving images surreal.

That's what they look like:



They are part of the future:

What do TripAdvisor travelers think? We polled more than 2,200 people last week, asking if they would be comfortable with U.S. airports using full body scanners that can see through clothing. A resounding 78% said yes, scanners would enhance security. The remaining 22% felt it was too much of an invasion of privacy. Looks like the majority will feel more secure, as we’re likely to see 500 or so machines in play at U.S. airports by the end of this year, and many European countries — including the U.K., the Netherlands, France, and Germany — move closer to implementing mandatory scans.

Not only does this reduce us to the likes of cattle being inspected during transport; radiation from these devices could be damaging our DNA leading to cancer and neoplastic diseases. The images are pretty depressing, they can see you almost as if you're naked (they actually have to blurry the faces on these, I've never seen a blurried x-ray).

And yes these will likely be required for jobs in the future. Add it to pre-employment physicals, background checks, references, bank statement, urine analysis...until finally we just give them some DNA and blood. Sorry for the rant, just that this bothers me.

I wonder how much radiation one absorbs form a scan like this,.
That will eventually be another concern down the road

awmilton,

Yeah, I read about this recently too. It is not a good sign

Yes, but governments often lie to get power, and then use those powers in ways they specifically said they would not.
