    Airports Set To Become Primary Peddlers Of Child Porn

    Paul Joseph Watson
    Tuesday, January 5, 2010

    The establishment is ensuring that pedophiles and perverts are kept entertained at airport security checkpoints by mandating the mass rollout of naked body scanners that provide detailed images of your child’s genitalia, to be enjoyed by officials sitting alone in back rooms.​

    Despite official assurances and media talking points that claim the naked body scanners now being implemented in airports worldwide do not show enough detail to be considered a violation of privacy, the true measure of how much of an intrusion they really are is proven by the fact that they break child pornography laws in the UK that bar the production of indecent images of children.​

    Ministers in the UK will be forced to exempt under-18’s from the virtual strip searches or pass new legislation that protects airport workers from being prosecuted as pedophiles.​

    It's very simple...if you don't like it, don't fly. There is no right to flight.

    Easy for you to say this now. What happens when they start doing these body scans for cruises, bus travel, train travel, the subway, etc? I guess we'll all be traveling by foot before long, until they figure out a way to regulate and tax that.

    Not when it comes to airport security. There is no implication of privacy.

    Now, a picture of MY naked body, that's a violation of EVERYONE ELSE's privacy :eek:.

    There's no right for cruises, bus travel, train travel, or the subway either.

    Why aren't any of your complaining about your lack of privacy when they xray your luggage? Or when they decide that they need to open up your carry on bags and look through those? Are your arguments about privacy or modesty? Pick one, and be consistent.

    You assume that I would choose to fly. I've neither said whether I would or would not. Are you gifted with the art of mind reading?

    What if it part of one's job?

    Also, I wonder if one can refuse to take part in this or privacy/modesty concerns.

    I think the privacy issue is a big issue with this. Would it be reasonable to go ahead and have these, but only use them for secondary screening? While there is a need for airport security, it seems almost everything we do with it is reactionary and not ahead of the game. However, it's not possible to foresee everything that could go wrong.

    You can - in which case you will go to an other area to be closely searched.


    "Child porn"?? Yeah - not so much.

    These machines are very expensive and will not be used to scan everyone. I heard on a news report that they will only be used for secondary screening. Most airports do not even have them (though Washington National Airport near me has them).

    They also say that terrorists can put devices in body cavities that the scanners will not catch. So I don't think there is any way to be totally secure in flying.

    I don't work at Hooters because I object to the work environment. If I objected to these scanners, then I don't have to work where I fly either.

    Or until they figure out it is easier to pass a law than enforce it.
    The American people DOES have its' limits.:thumbsup:

    Beside the fact that I'm trying to get rid of that mental picture, you make a good point.

    Of course, they'll be used to scan five year-olds, and great-grandmothers.

    I imagine that in most locales, 28 year-old Ahmed-al-wahalla-al-wallawihawi will manage to avoid being "profiled."

    But I could be wrong.

    Really? There is no right to be able to purchase a legal service from a vendor of your choice?

    An easy rebuttal is yes, there is, but that service provider also has the right to say "you can't come into my store unless you submit to a security screening" before you enter.
