The so-called naked body scanners used by airports and courts to prevent weapons from entering are supposed to be safe and secure. The argument is that the images captured will only be viewed once by a trained security official, then discarded. Unfortunately, the Gen 2 wave scanner used by the Federal Court in Orlando, Florida, made by Brijot Imaging Systems, isn’t quite sticking with what the American public was promised when these naked body scanners started to appear in airports and courts throughout the country. The images that security officials ranging from the TSA to the US Marshals promised could not be saved, stored, duplicated, or captured? Well, a check of the security scanner revealed some 35,000 preserved images on the machine’s hard drives. Whoops.
Fortunately, this machine isn’t one of the more revealing naked image scanners that shows a more photo-realistic version of the naked person beneath the clothing, but the blurrier, more X-ray type. Still, this is why people don’t like these scanners. I don’t want security to see me naked, and I don’t want security to touch my junk. A normal metal detector should be enough.
