A Push Back Against Full Body Scanners

I predicted this months ago. As opposed to draconian policies which just target the poor, this is one is going to affect a lot of upper-middle class and close-to-rich people . (The truly wealthy have their own jets.) We will soon start seeing the lawsuits. For one, the TSA is hiring on the cheap which means folks with criminal backgrounds are getting through the cracks. Mix that with pat downs and full body scans of children and there are many routes to litigation. It also looks like the unions are pushing back on grounds of exposure to repeated radiation.

As to this query :

“I don’t know why everybody is running to buy these expensive and useless machines. I can overcome the body scanners with enough explosives to bring down a Boeing 747,” (Israeli Airport Security expert) Rafi Sela told parliamentarians probing the state of aviation safety in Canada."(1)

It answers itself. Plush contacts from the public till to enrich connected friends in the security-military sector.

What could be better ?
