One Hundred Naked Citizens: One Hundred Leaked Body Scans - LA LA LA HA HA HA - I PREDICTED THIS ON MY MONOBLOG...

 out loud voice?


"At the heart of the controversy over "body scanners" is a promise: The images of our naked bodies will never be public. U.S. Marshals in a Florida Federal courthouse saved 35,000 images on their scanner. These are those images.
Gizmodo investigation has revealed 100 of the photographs saved by the Gen 2 millimeter wave scanner from Brijot Imaging Systems, Inc., obtained by a FOIA request after it was recently revealed that U.S. Marshals operating the machine in the Orlando, Florida courthouse had improperly-perhaps illegally-saved images of the scans of public servants and private citizens.
...Yet the leaking of these photographs demonstrates the security limitations of not just this particular machine, but millimeter wave and x-ray backscatter body scanners operated by federal employees in our courthouses and by TSA officers in airports across the country. That we can see these images today almost guarantees that others will be seeing similar images in the future. If you're lucky, it might even be a picture of you or your family." - Gizmodo

As I've written here before ON THE VERY SAME TOPIC, "I hate people sometimes, I surely do. Stories like this make me want to bite people, really hard, and not in a fun way."

Thank heavens for Flying Pasties!!  I believe I may buy stock in that company!
