[CNET] TSA, bored of seeing you naked, removing airport body scanners  

post #1 of 79

Bloomberg offers that no matter how hard it tried, OSI Systems, the company entrusted to write modesty-enhancing software, discovered it couldn't do it in time.
...
The TSA will, however, rely on scanners from other companies that allegedly offer a more discreet form of humiliating security.

So out with the old, in with the less effective it seems.

Honestly, I had no problems with these body scanners personally. I am willing to walk through these scanners for the extra security during flights.

For the most part I agree. But I do see it as a step towards infringement on personal liberties. However, if they just did the body scan randomly (and by random, I mean have a computer randomly say take this person aside, not "she looks hott" or "he looks middle-eastern") then it wouldn't be so bad.

LOL. True or not, that made me laugh at work.

I would have been happy with keeping the current body scanners but replacing the TSA agents.

I would be happy with nothing less than dissolving the TSA completely. Useless, rights-violating bureaucracy. That's all it is and that's all it will ever be.

I am not happy with being shot with close-to x-ray level radiation each time I want to board a flight. I am already being exposed to elevated levels of Gama Radiation when the flight is at cruising altitude....

The sooner the TSA is gone the better. All these privacy invasive scanners do is provide people with a false sense of security. The article even mentions how easy it is to fool these scanners. All these scanners (and the TSA for that matter) do is violate your rights, provide you with a dangerous false sense of security, hit you with who knows how dangerous radiation, and cost the taxpayers millions.

Since these scanners are still in place I still vow to make the process as uncomfortable as possible for everybody involved.

So you are saying these scanners do not add any actual security to flights? Only the perception of security?
