For Airport Security, Size Matters - May 6, 2010

Quote:
Negrin, pictured in the mug shot at right, and his co-workers had been training with new "whole body image" machines--the controversial kind that provide very revealing images of a traveler--when Negrin walked through the scanner. "The X-ray revealed that [Negrin] has a small penis and co-workers made fun of him on a daily basis,"'
This will help with the public acceptance of this contraption I'm sure.

Wow!

I will NEVER go through one of those scanners. I opt for the pat down. And I surely wouldn't allow one of my children to go through it.

My privacy trumps the FAA any day of the week.

I posted this in the Miami forum last week since the incident happened in Miami.
MIA, body scanners, TSA
I wonder if the scanners can detect the explosives that are embedded in breasts like the terrorists are thought to be trying next.

Now the whole world knows he has a small penis. LOL!!!!

I don't care for these things at all and don't plan on going thru them. I don't like the idea at all. Not to mention that they are IN THE OPEN and everyone else can see the same image as well and not just the TSA people. Besides, the TSA people seem to be a little short on the "professional" side of the specturm. Not exactly the brightest from what I've encountered.

Explosives in breasts............ WOW!!! So I guess they could look for the person that might be a terrorist that looks as if they have had implants done.........

The FAA doesn't have anything to do with security.

Actually, the screeners and monitors are supposed to be in separate areas so that the images are not seen by anyone other than the screener.

This was an airport employee, not a member of the traveling public. Faces are blurred . The only reason this guy was singled out was because they knew him anyway. Scan away, keep me as safe as possible when I fly.

Yeah, TSA employees do not seem overly educated in my opinion...and quite a few could use a course on basic grooming.

Much rather be scanned than blown up. Seen one you've seen 'em all is what I here tell. Now that's hearsay. Like define small and large? How high is up?
