Airport body scanners reveal all, but what about when it's your kid?

There's been lots of talk lately about body scanners — the new airport security tool that allows screeners to see through clothes. People are concerned about privacy, delayed flights, health effects.

Now there's another concern. What about kids? Do they have to go through this, too? And what are parents' rights?

I don't think minors should be scanned without the parent's permission.

Translation: terrorists, plant your bomb on your kids.

Profiling should be used vice body scanners. This is fracking stupid.

So you agree with child pornography when it's the state doing it? The machines can save the pictures. Also, provide proof that the TSA has actually prevented a terrorist from doing anything on a plane.

Scanners are a ridiculous waste of money and time. What we really need is a re-evaluation of TSA and other security agencies/practices.

No, I'm opposed to body scanners. I think racial profiling will be much more effective, or 100% security, where every single passenger is physically searched.

The scanners are the Libbos's solution to racial profiling. I thought they were bad idea, from the git-go, because, obviously, some little girl's cooter is going to end up on Youtube.

Ahh I apologize for the misunderstanding.

We need to stop strip searching 90 y/o ladies and 10 y/o little girls and focus on people who could actually be terrorists, rather than trying to appear to be politically correct. If we hurt someone's feelings, then touogh-goddamn-**** for that feller; he needs to growup and get past it.

Racial profiling is wrong.
Translation: terrorists, plant your bomb on your kids.
Translation: terrorists, plant your bomb on white people.

Showing some 8 y/o girl's ***** on youtube is even wronger.

If the Arab/Muslim/Mid-Eastern'esque folkd don't like it, then they can work a little harder at squashing the Islamo-facists. Otherwise, shutup and deal with it.

The scanners wouldn't be uploaded to youtube. I am not advocating for them, but they could be compatible to doctors giving check ups and requiring the kids to go nude for a second.

And why should we collectively punish Arabs and Muslims? Btw, Islam is not a race, so are we going to religiously profile as well? Again, saying we will racial profile only sends terrorists the message that they should plant bombs on white people. It's similar to your argument regarding not scanning children that I quoted.

Um yeah, I doubt that will happen. Your acting like this these pictures will be open to the public, and displayed for all the pedos to see. Though I don't think kids should have to go through, your not being realistic here.

Oh yeah? Based on what, the minimum wage level mo-fo's that are running these scanners?

Anyone over the the age of 16 knows that sooner, or later, one of these through-heads is going to leak the scan of a 15 y/o girl, with a shaved ***** onto Youtube.

Because it's Arabs/Muslims that are committing 90% of the terrorist acts?

let me ask you this, if white supremists are executing terrorist attacks on airliners, are you going to strip search a 90 y/o black woman? I wouldn't. How 'bout you?

The images on the scanner do not possess that level of detail.

edit: although anything you can possibly think of, SOME sick ****er out there has a fetish for it. "Lumpy grey humanoids" is somebody's thing.

You're assuming that the "minimum wage mo-fo's" actually have access to the hard drive that these pictures are stored in. I doubt they do.

Actually, the resolution on them is pretty damn good. I've seen the marketing pictures and you can make out quite a bit of detail on them.

According to the materials released by the company that if you have access to the machine you can store the pictures onto a USB drive or similar media.

Oh, so based on your knowledge of how it works, we should feel just peachy about it? I think I'll pass; that's just me.

Oh so we should rely on your knowledge on the issue. Gotcha!

Seriously, your acting like the things will have a "post to Twitter" application at the bottom of the pictures.

Like this matters.

It matters alot. If you're not a parent, then there's no way you can see things from a parent's perspective. It's easy to say, "it's no big deal", when it's not your kid. If you were an actual parent, you would know what I mean.
