You are another person that just doesn't get it. Not everyone opts out of the scanners because they want to cause trouble, many opt out because it
truly makes them uncomfortable and then they are subjected to more humiliation. It's humiliation. Maybe most people have lost their morals, but alot
of old women I know would die of embarrassment knowing some stranger is getting to see them naked. In their whole lives the two people that have seen
them in that vulnerable nude state are their husbands and doctors. It's not fair to the people.
Also, there was an article that said the odds of cancer from one of these machines is very low, actually, about the same as the odds of being killed
by a terrorist.
Also it's a legitimate concern, especially when you consider people like the woman that had survived breast cancer not wanting to be exposed to extra
radiation (she ended up having to show her prosthetic breast to a TSA member) and what of people that fly very frequently?
It's wrong, and there are better ways.
Also you say they stop more harm, before the new procedures were instituted I don't recall there really being a big problem with terrorists under the
post 9/11 security. And if you're honest, you have to agree. One underwear bomber that was very fishy.
Have you read anything about why these were instituted. It's not about preventing harm it's about making the U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security rich.
Anyone that doesn't see the problems here is blind. This is the kind of stuff the people on this site are usually outraged about.
