Because freedom can't protect itself
Not to mention they also destroy your bodies DNS and cause several other health issues.
I've seen these scanners identify small baggies of powder and plastic knives. The research you mention is either flawed or outdated. There is a simple fix for those who feel such searches are too intrusive; don't fly. The safety of everyone else FAR outweighs some prudish individual's embarrassment.
Oh really now. So if these body scanners won't work, what exactly does the ACLU suggest? How about racial profiling. That DOES work!
So like the ACLU to offer criticism but no solutions.
When did applying for a job become PROBABLE CAUSE? The FBI's N.C.I.C computer lists me as having been arrested on some insidious charge. Access to my "rap sheet" is denied to me because it's "for criminal justice purposes only".
I AM NOT A CRIMINAL!!! Any direction on this issue would be appreciated.
