Leaked U.S. Marshal body scan images revealed


www.msnbc.msn.com

After news hit that U.S. Marshals operating a body scanner machine in a courthouse had stored 35,000 images — despite the fact that the machines were supposed to be incapable of saving them — Gizmodo made a Freedom of Information Act request and received 100 of the shots.

The images, which arrived with identifying features already removed, depict the millimeter wave technique. This is considered to be the "less embarrassing" body scan, since, as you can see, it doesn't depict the body with much clarity.

Oh lookie, lookie... now the images that were not suppose to be saved or made public is stockpiled at 35,000 and growing, and a outside vendor decides to snatch 100 of them....

Is this what we're suppose to tolerate at the airport now? We're frisked/grope/undressed by a machine all in the name of national security in efforts to protect us from a war that does not make sense?

I am never flying on a plane now, people should quickly revert to using the rails if they gotta move around domestically; protest this BS to the core!!!

I haven't flown since 1981. I HATE flying and this just seals the deal.

How do they really consider this security when NO-ONE feels secure after going through it?

I'd still fly, I'd just ask them to put their hands down my pants with a smug look on my face.

" Reach down there if you like buddy, you're the one doing it in front of a bunch of people. I gotta warn you, I saw some nice looking ladies before this search started, so its your funeral"

Edit: But yes, of course. This is a serious problem. I hope they find a plausible solution quickly

I agree...screw planes and the porn they force you to star in to get on board. Nobody on the face of this planet is doing this to me or my family.

Totally insane... totally Orwellian... Absolutely UNACCEPTABLE!

It is a damn shame that the combined efforts of so many industries, agencies and medias have reduced the human spine to something that ALLOWS this kind of crap to be done to us without us all standing up as adults saying "no...this is NOT acceptable".

Not a fan...

Thanks for the thread.

This is so intrusive!

This is all part of a bigger plan. Recently the government owned auto companies partnered with China. If enough people revolt over the airlines they too will be soon government owned. What happens when they own everything? They control everything! In Communist countries the homes are owned by the government. Look at the new wave of Fannie and Freddie foreclosures coming our way. Too many comparisons.

If you look on the gizmodo website you'll see that the scanner can see people at the first checkpoint which is 15 feet away.
The scanner can scan at a distance if it was turned up a bit.

Scary thought if that sucker was turned up a bit they could see everything.

Received this in an email today, the picture in the OP is nothing compared to this...glad I don't fly anymore, not since 1999, the last time I flew to Europe.

I think this is a controlled/intentional release. The scans aren't this bad, no way they could be or the government wouldn't even use this equipment. They put these out so people would be like "you can't see anything" and just accept the scan.

I call B.S.

EDIT: Ahh i see it used the "less embarrassing image technique." Still I think these will be labeled as regular body scanner pics and used for the purpose i stated above.

Read the comments on that link.. the public is already being mislead. They have already turned and began the snide comments about the people against these scanners calling them paranoid because these people see these blobs and (as expected of sheep) assume it's the same technology (even though the article even says otherwise).

I hate the ignorance found in the majority of people.. I want to shake every one of them and say NOO! I started to comment a few times but realized it was futile.

This is pure propaganda to get you haters riled up.

Here are some points I noted in another post:
www.abovetopsecret.com...

First off, nobody ever claimed this technology is not capable of taking images at all. They claimed that the airport scanners are not able to do it most likely because that feature is disabled in the airport scanner versions of this technology. It's all about the software package.

These images are from a COURTHOUSE not an airport. The date has been removed from the images too... this is because these images are old and irrelevant to the entire airport scanner issue.

Can't you see how useless these images are? Think for a minute why anybody in their right mind would save these very blurry images of obese people.... These images are most likely used for training security personnel. Or as technology demonstration images. There is not one other single reason for anyone to save these images other than that.

Wow, Gizmodo is pushing propaganda... great. Thanks Gizmodo for showing us training/demonstration images that are basically useless. Many of the people in the images are police officers and security personal... wow.. I'm so impressed.

I'm going to sit back and watch you conspiracy theorist eat these images up like it's the only meal you have had the entire week.

Thats just sick and perverted, now if an 'individual' stole copies and hid them, they would be thrown in jail and the key tossed.

If those are the reasons for those images, don't they also have to train people to use the other technology that gives the higher resolution images (X-ray backscatter)?

So if images are saved for training purposes then why not train people to use all the technologies including the high resolution type, not just the low resolution version shown in the OP story?

I don't think they high resolution scanners require much training because they are higher detail. These lower detail scanners probably cause many false alarms, and require training so that you don't constantly get fooled by false alarms.

Take a look at this image:


This scanner more than likely works by finding "dark areas" within "white areas". In the above image there is two people in the same shot, and between them is a large dark area. The scanner software most probably thought both white areas from both people are actually ONE person. It then highlight the dark area between the two people because it thought it was ONE person with one large object on their persons. This would then be called a false alarm. You would have to train people to tell the difference.

...but all that is irrelevant anyway. Of course they have technology demonstrations with the higher resolution scanners. They probably have training images as well. These people in the OP's images most likely agreed to having their images saved. Most of them are government officials, and it even states that in the article.

Why dont they just start having nudist flights? Or swingers flights where everyone gets in the mile high club?

I mean, if they're going to play these stupid games they may as well go all the way.

I will be flying on Thanksgiving day. Short, domestic flight, staying in state etc. I am going to opt out ( I know for a fact the airport I am going to will have them).

Anyone have any top notch material for me spout as they "touch my junk?" I had planned on making the TSA folks as humanly uncomfortable as I could, while staying in the confines of the law. (Not that they have to, but they make their own laws).

I would love to read them the proverbial "Riot Act" before, during and after the 2 minute drill. Any good material would be wonderful.

The fact that any of them are stored and released is bad enough. The point is that the TSA keeps ranting about how the images simply cannot be saved, when anyone with half a brain knows that the images CAN be saved, but it's an issue of if they WILL be. Regardless of if these are training images, they apparently were saved and thus the machines have the capability. To be fair, these are not the same machines as in airports, but their detail is much higher and ultimately it's an unreasonable amount of security we need to put up with for no added security for an even that is so statistically unlikely to happen that it only manages to waste taxpayer money and our time (and conveniently make people accustomed to these sorts of disgusting actions by the government).

I guess so.

But you are gunna have to allow them to photograph your genitals first...No pics, no seat.

This is what my suspicions confirmed:

Naked body scanner machines can store images by the billions, in exobyte capacity hard drives and with Wi-Fi, enabling the TSA perverts to surreptitiously download the images to their smartphones so that they can masturbate over them in their spare time.

The machines can network themselves to DHS headquarters in DC, enabling the gubmint officials to spot 'terrorists' from the comfort and safety of their offices.
