Docs Reveal TSA Plan To Body-Scan Pedestrians, Train Passengers

Giving Transportation Security Administration agents a peek under your clothes may soon be a practice that goes well beyond airport checkpoints. Newly uncovered documents show that as early as 2006, the Department of Homeland Security has been planning pilot programs to deploy mobile scanning units that can be set up at public events and in train stations, along with mobile x-ray vans capable of scanning pedestrians on city streets.

The non-profit Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) on Wednesday published documents it obtained from the Department of Homeland Security showing that from 2006 to 2008 the agency planned a study of of new anti-terrorism technologies that EPIC believes raise serious privacy concerns. The projects range from what the DHS describes as “a walk through x-ray screening system that could be deployed at entrances to special events or other points of interest” to “covert inspection of moving subjects” employing the same backscatter imaging technology currently used in American airports.

...

One project allocated to Northeastern University and Siemens would mount backscatter x-ray scanners and video cameras on roving vans, along with other cameras on buildings and utility poles, to monitor groups of pedestrians and assess what they carried. In another program, the researchers were asked to develop a system of long range x-ray scanning to determine what metal objects an individual might have on his or her body at distances up to thirty feet.

It surely is, who want's to be stopped everytime they purchase a knife? And how is this going to be effective with crowds of people walking the streets in the cities? They can't scan everyone.

This was eventually gonna happen. The tecnology was already being used to scan cargo containers and semi trailers. George Orwell may have been off fifty to one hundred years but the outcome will all be the same. We will be constantly monitored. Every word we speak will be listened to and analyzed. Our locations will be tracked constantly etc. Most of this stuff is allready going on small scale, but in the future it will be widespread and all inclusive. Terror attacks, whether false flags or not, are going to be the end of all personal freedoms.
