Skip to comments.EPIC v. Homeland Security: Government has Over 2,000 Photos from Airport Body Scanners
Posted on 04/23/2010 2:47:53 AM PDT by Palter
As a result of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, EPIC has obtained hundreds of pages of documents from the Department of Homeland Security about the plan to deploy full body scanners in US airports. A letter to EPIC reveals that the government agency possesses about 2,000 body scanner photos from devices that the DHS said earlier "could not store or record images." EPIC has also obtained the most recent device procurement specifications, and several hundred new pages of traveler complaints. For more information, see EPIC: Whole Body Imaging and EPIC: EPIC v. Department of Homeland Security.
Aren’t there kids among these images? Seems to me the federal government should be arrested and prosecuted on child porn charges. There should be no bail, and the federal government will have to put on hold what they are doing for a few months at least, like, immigration legislation, crap-n-trade, etc...
Cue Claude Rains...
Can’t record or store, but that doesn’t mean that pictures can’t be taken of the viewing screen.
“Cant record or store, but that doesnt mean that pictures cant be taken of the viewing screen.”
yes they can store the images, they can also print the images
Does anyone actually believe the drivel coming out of the mouths of anyone in government, especially DHS?
I despise TSA. It’s the most useless agency within the entire U.S. government.
The photo files are being maintained by government wankers for a bit of “hoo hah” in the morning and throughout the day.
It’s not useless; it is entirely too useful in conditioning a compliant population to submit to ever more controls while maintaining PC correctness rather than focusing on real likely suspects.
The pictures are sent over to the SEC for their perusal daily.
I was scanned Sunday a.m. at BWI. I was not interviewed but in case anyone wants to know: my turn-ons are great seafood and tv crime drama, my turn-offs are mean lefties and telephone book sized legislation.
I wouldn’t doubt that the SEC passes them around.
Are they all former administrators of the Philadelphia school system that took surreptitious photos of students in their homes.
I was scanned back in January at Denver International. Woe to the poor sap who comes across my body scan image.
Can’t really see anything of substance with the images, just outlines. I can’t imagine anyone getting off on them.
In other words, I don’t really care if they scan me or not. I don’t feel violated by it.
These cameras are all about irradiating us further, and enhancing the police state/one-world government/more control.
I’ve given up all flying now, barring some complete emergency. I will not submit to Chertoff’s and the others’ hawking-fear-so-they-can-make-money schemes, all while Muslims and favored classes get to walk in scot-free, without so much as a questioning.
