Phoenix Airport will be the first to test a new screening system that only felons deserve to be subject to. The screening system effectively photographs its subject nude.
According to the article, the images are seen by an "officer in a remote location."
You want some middle-aged man looking at a photograph of your 17-year-old daughter without her clothes on? A middle-aged man in a booth by himself?
This is the most odious proposal by the creepy TSA since September 11. I predict it will cause widespread outrage. I believe this airport might even see a boycott.
The TSA isn't satisfied with anything. They've forced us to buy every liquid we use for our hygiene two times: once in actual size and once in three ounce bottles. They've backed up lines and caused headaches and misery for millions of commuters. They're skeptical of 99-year-olds and six year-olds.
This is excessive and these machines will be abused by perverts hiding behind the curtains. I guarantee that the makers of these machines have a nice little financial deal with some corrupt politician in Washington. We shouldn't stand for this, and the airlines should use their bargaining power to tell these creeps, "No."
We will not have a bunch of Mark Foleys watching our wives and daughters from their private little booths doing whatever it is they are doing in there on our tax dollars.
