EPIC: DHS Refuses to Disclose Details of Mobile Body Scanner Technology
My first thought now whenever we hear something like this is: what is DHS hiding and how long will it take to be ferreted out?
Ah, these are the roving junkatrons, our new friends the so-called ZBV vans, the constitution-shredder on wheels.
Wonder what the x-ray exposure to this stuff really is. Seems that if it can penetrate through the side of a truck that it must be considerable. Surely they exercise good judgement when using this thing.
What is good judgment among friends, comrade, as long as it is pointed at someone else's truck?
It blows my mind that one "human being" can do that to another. Truly creepy. I've read CBP actually use this technology at the Mexican border. Please, please correct me if I'm wrong. The idea alone gives me the screaming willies.
Privacy? Who cares about privacy. I don't want to be involuntarily irradiated by knuckle-dragging morons. No way is this safe!
DHS use good judgement?
This has been going on since at least 2006. Stationary versions of these scanners are in wide use at ocean freight terminals to inspect containers, truck weigh stations and portable versions deployed to a variety of agencies for use in inspecting trucks and other vehicles to detect human trafficking.
But what of the humans who get zapped by the x-rays if they happen to be inside?
