Shocking News: TSA Scanners Ineffective
Body scanners being tested at Germany’s Hamburg airport have had a thumbs down from the police, who say they trigger an alarm unnecessarily in seven out of 10 cases, a newspaper said Saturday.
The weekly Welt am Sonntag, quoting a police report, said 35 percent of the 730,000 passengers checked by the scanners set off the alarm more than once despite being innocent.
The report said the machines were confused by several layers of clothing, boots, zip fasteners and even pleats, while in 10 percent of cases the passenger’s posture set them off.
Not to mention the things are like Disneyland for skeevy TSA agents and other onlookers. From Postsecret a few weeks back:
Our bodies are sacred; our right to privacy supreme. We should not be subjected to unhealthy radiation and have our constitutional right to privacy eroded just because
we want to ride a plane George Soros and Michael Chertoff want to get richer.
