You saw these terrible machines on V for Vendetta.

You now see these machines in real life.

Couldn't you just put something solid infront of the IED or whatever, and it wouldn't be able to detect it? That's what it seems like to me.

My wife works for some private government contractors and is currently driving this type of van. Drives it home everyday. Hid the Christmas gifts in the car this year like every year, and heck, she sees what they are. Stupid van.

It's impossible to escape Big Brother. He is probably watching me type this. He just saw me blink. O noes!

But seriously, over the past few months I keep hearing myself say "How is this legal?"

"Very low levels of radiation" Well, that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

I was a CT/MRI engineer for GE Healthcare. I can tell you with authority that X-rays are bad, even when administered in "low levels". But, TPTB don't care any more for the operators of the equipment than they do for the rest of the populace. This is about government contracts ($$$), control and desensitization of the public. It has nothing whatsoever to do with safety or security.

The most effective screening vehicle on the market today?

Imagine the big bucks that will be rolling in for the pharma business once everyone starts to get cancer from being bombarded with x-rays from these trucks and at airports.

Yeah, can't you plate your car with something that will not let the xrays through? Or would a sheet of lead be impractical.

The person that originally showed me this link said that the gov. has already invested big bucks into these vans but I don't have an official source confirming that. It's not even doubtful though.

Nowhere to run to, nowhere to hide.

The furture is now, and it looks bleak as hell.

My thought is, I hope there is a way for a private citizen to get one of these things or a handheld version of it. I will buy one and use it on TPTB or anyone in authority and see how they like being snooped on not to mention the "low" levels of x-ray.

Good idea, if I had the bux to do it I would have 7 parked outside any police station that uses these and "monitor" them. AKA Radiating

Most of the images from the backscatter scanner in the video showed nothing at all, at least nothing unusual. I guess we're all going to get cancer from the radiation and die a slow and painful death, but before we die big pharma will step in and profit from it by selling us post radiation pills.
