TSA Research Proposal To Body-Scan Pedestrians, Train Passengers discovered

Those Aussies are even doing us one better. I am sure when Janet catches this, the next step for us.

Australia will be trialling x-ray scanners at airports that can provide a crisp image of a persons insides.  Aussie scanners can see those heroin-filled condoms you swallowed.

Australian customs found 60 pounds of drugs inside the bodies of travelers last year, now legislation is before the Federal Parliament that would allow customs officers to use these new body scanners to view all objects beyond folds of skin instead of sending drug-smuggling suspects to hospitals for internal X-rays ordered by a doctor.

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, assess what they carried, and even track their eye movements. 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.

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 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.

The 173-page collection of contracts and reports, acquired through a Freedom of Information Act request, includes contracts with Siemens Corporations, Northeastern University, and Rapiscan Systems. The study was expected to cost more than $3.5 million.

    And who came up with this affront to freedom? Why, that would be the Democrats of course. You know, the same brain dead retards who gave us Roe v. Wade predicated on a right to privacy. Funny how a right to privacy to murder your unborn children translates to the government inspecting your naked body and internal organs without your knowledge isn’t it? Never mind the cancers caused by being repeatedly subjected to such technology. Just when you think it couldn’t get any worse…

      Thanks William for stopping and your succinct and to the point observations. Cancer? What do they care.. there are too many of us anyway, so say the Progressives.
