Posted on 03/07/2012 9:47:37 AM PST by Jewbacca
This is a video showing how easy it is to defeat the TSA body scans and what a scam the entire process is.
Briefly, metal objects show up as "black" on the scan, so you can hide anything you want on your side and walk through the scanner --- something that was impossible with the old-fashioned metal detectors.
Heck I bet a pistol in a shoulder holster would make it through.
And before people cry about "letting the terrorists know," I guarantee they know already.
can’t open the link here what is the tactic and what is said please?
Basically anything can be put on your side and won’t show up.
(Metal shows up as black and the background is black.)
He was carrying all sorts of stuff in a pocket he sewed on the side of his shirt.
TSA keeps demanding Youtube pull the video.
Scanners were banned in Europe due to health concerns.
A friend of mine wears a hairpiece, and he says they have yet to stop or ask him about it when he goes through that scanner.

You could hide a pistol is somelady’s beehive hair, ala Ferris Bueler’s day off, as it wouldn’t show up, either, as there would be no constrast.
In fact, that would be better, as there is no human “backdrop” from any angle.
thank you , very interesting
I’m trying to visualize body structure and the stuff a thick old lady could sneak through.
He carried through a metal box about the size of a little Berretta 22.
Explosives could be done the same way.
Thanks for posting.
TSA/DHS: I believe the terrorists won.
It is to present security theatre as a means of providing government jobs to favored groups and government contracts to well-connected donors.
Once you understand that, everything they do makes perfect sense.
“can the gummint be this stupid?” he asks....
“I even drove over 1000 mile trip several times, to keep my weapon on my belt.”
Well apparently on your hip, they won’t notice. Just wear a baggy shirt and no belt.
Pathetic. I wondered why Ben-Gurion Airport didn’t have these. Now I know.
This may or may not be true. I’ve seen two youtube hoaxes like this.
Hoax number one: Your cell phone (or other device) can be used to unlock your car if you lose your keys.
Basically, there is a person off camera with the pushbutton key fob. When the person on camera does whatever he does with the device he’s claiming can unlock the doors, the guy off camera hits the unlock button and, presto, the doors unlock. It depends on you trusting them to be honest.
Hoax number two: You can reset the “computer” on an epson printing cartridge to get the rest of the ink that is “hidden”. They show you a printer cartridge that shows almost empty on the digital readout. They then remove the cartridge and show you a little hole in the side. They use a paperclip and shove it in the hole to “reset” the computer. Then they re-install the cartridge and, presto, it shows as full.
Problem is, that little hole is just a hole in the shape of the plastic. It doesn’t even go all the way through. It is not a reset button at all (I dissassembled a cartridge myself to prove it). What thed did was simply remove the almost empty cartridge, Push a paperclip into the “hole” in the pattern of the plastic case, then insert a new cartridge in the printer.
Both of these videos depend on you simply trusting the person presenting the video to be sincere. After all, why would they just make it up. ;-)
I don’t buy this one either, based on what I saw in the video. Not enough evidence.
Well, the TSA is certainly upset and tried to pull the video.
It’s certainly a real lawsuit he filed.
Gizmodo and others have picked this up.
I’m not saying it is definitely a hoax. I’m saying I need more evidence than just the video.

How do we know this?
“You have to keep in mind that the object of the TSA isn’t to achieve air travel security.”
I believe the object of the TSA is employ the otherwise unemployable.
At the Office Of The Aging in my mother’s county in NY, the receptionist told me they aren’t there to help the elderly. She told me outright that the department exists to employ people.
