    As I wrote on CNN`s comment section:

    1. I am not going to get a dose of radiation everytime I get on a flight. And I will not submit to a same gender junk check. It will have to be a female TSA "agent" and not the 300lbs cnn was showing in their picture. (I also would prefer they hum the gilligan`s island themesong throught the process)

    2. Anyone who thinks they will touch any child related to me, in ways that would have the child pointing out where she was touched on a doll, will have to endure at least a 30 second ass kicking from me until the "agents" pull me off.

    3. Anyone thinking they will touch my mother in the same way or my father should refer to #2.

    4. The TSA routinely hires people with criminal backgrounds. I would never submit to them touching me for fear I would come away with Herpes Simplex B or some other STD....though...when flying I routinely leave via Baltimore and Philly...so I shouldn`t expect anything more t

    I agree. They did win. Our government has repeatedly offended and disrespected it`s own people time and time again. Civil liberties should never be sacrificed for any reason. I`d rather die than live in a society where I would be constantly supervised and suspected. I`m not scared of terrorists. I`m scared of the government.

    I have a strong fear of being touched by strangers, so I have no choice but to let them see me naked instead. :-/ It makes me really uncomfortable but if I want to fly somewhere there`s nothing I can do about it. At least they give you a choice between being groped or strip searched!

    @TR: There are a few simple ways to make sure that it is impossible to hijack or blow up an airplane.

    1) Lock the roosterpit door and do not open it under any circumstances. This works on the basic principle that a person who can`t get to the plane`s controls can`t control the plane.

    2) Realize that if a bomb is not big enough to be obvious, it`s not big enough to cause the plane to crash. Yes, people nearby would be injured or killed, but, for example, the underwear bomber could have caused more damage in your average restaurant (RESTAURANTS DON`T HAVE SECURITY CHECKPOINTS!) than in an airplane.

    3) Require searches to be made only on reasonable grounds, with a minimum requirement of probable cause (you know, like in Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution). The biggest problem with using devices such as are used now, is that any layman already knows how to beat the system (hide the bomb in your anus and you can get on the plane easily).

    On the other hand, a well trained officer can easily detect people displaying suspicious behavior. It is demonstrably more useful to have the officer evaluate how the traveler responds to a simple question (such as "Where are your going?") than to have an entire army of people who only care about whether a machine sounds an alarm.

    The TSA needs to profile. Americans aren`t hijacking planes and flying them into buildings. We`re doing this because people from the mideast have a bone to pick with our government. It may be a deserved bone but they need to leave us out of it. So the TSA should pack up their gear and move it to the mideast. Frisk the people that are flying into the US, not old ladies flying to Florida.

    @KrazyKoala: The terrorists haven`t won by inconveniencing us.

    The terrorists have won by making us so afraid that we`re willing to give up our basic rights.

    The fact of the matter is that if a person in the US wants to fly, they must either allow themselves to be photographed naked, or allow themselves to be sexually assaulted (by this I mean touching and fondling of the breasts, labia, testicles, penis and anus).

    Even then, there would be problems.

    The primary reason I can think of is because of all those stupid pricks who think "Oh, it`s a government official, I should tell him to shove off and mind his own business, the filthy pig."

    Between the officers who actually ARE corrupt and the people who think all officials are corrupt and lie to them or act like pricks to them, there`d be a TON of false alarms that would raise plenty of complaints...

    @madest: Profiling does NOT work if you profile based on age, race or dress. In fact, most terrorists in the US have been middle-age while males. So (if you are white and your age is correct), then YOU fit the profile of the typical terrorist in this country.

    Profiling DOES work if you profile based on a person`s behavior. Like I said before, a well trained officer will easily be able to detect a person who is acting in such a way as to raise suspicion.

    Here`s an idea.. Get those pants that male strippers use where you can rip them right off, and wear a banana hammock underneath. Then choose to opt out of the body scanner, and give the TSA agent a pat down experience he`ll never forget!

    "The fact of the matter is that if a person in the US wants to fly, they must either allow themselves to be photographed naked, or allow themselves to be sexually assaulted (by this I mean touching and fondling of the breasts, labia, testicles, penis and anus)."

    Ridiculous. You are not being `photographed` and the image is not you `naked`. Are outlines and contours visible sure. Including the outlines of your underwear. There are no skin tones, facial features or anything that anyone could identify as you. The images are supposed to be viewed remotely, so the inspector can`t see you clothed and scanned.

    As for fondling - also ridiculous. fondle: "to handle or touch lovingly, affectionately, or tenderly; caress:" Not happening. Touching? Yes. Sensing with the hands? Yup. That`s what a pat-down is...

    And you take it one step further by including labia and anus. CRAZY! Nobody is trying to touch those. Let alone be able to thro

    @Altaru: I`m not saying there is an answer that will magically get rid of all problems.

    I`m just saying that we should, at very least, hold the TSA up to the standards of search and seizure required of ANY other law enforcement agency in the US. Yes, there is a lot of room for improvement in the requirements of US law enforcement, but imagine if their requirements were as low as those used by the TSA.

    I agree, most people are up in arms about this being a privacy issue, but that`s not the only concern. I will try to be objective: I`ve heard due to frequent use and radiation being a health concern, pilots and flight attendants are (this is where I am confused) either being encourage to get pat downs, or opting for them due to personal concern. The scanners have had their radiation levels checked, but the levels have not been evaluated by all the proper authorities. (from Cnn news)
    The rough pat downs are to discourage flyers from opting out ofrom scans. If both pat down and scan are refused(lets say one flyer says "eff this I`m driving I want a refund")up to 10,000 in fines are applicable. or as A fine, not sure on that one either.
    So american`s still have the right to choose not to fly, but it highly inconveniences them. For ex, for me to fly up to see my in-laws is $600 a person for a 2 hr flight, to drive is 2 days and 1,000 miles. Will I opt out? idk yet

    It`s not an easy, cut and dry type of question.

Its not like the trained security staff are gonna be giggling about it every time a person walks through a full body scan. I`d be much happier getting on a plane knowing all the passengers had this check instead of the old one.

    More trouble and less freedom is part of their plan. Publicity is also part of their plan, and such intrusive reminders are great publicity for them.

    There`s one thing you people need to understand about these full body scanners. Yes, they do submit you to radiation. However, the amount of radiation that you experience is approximately the same amount of radiation you would experience by being in the air for 20 minutes.
    When we`re in the air, we all experience cosmic radiation. This is why pregnant women aren`t allowed to fly.

    Cosmic radiation is NOT the reason pregnant women shouldn`t fly. Radiation is a damned good reason for them not to go through them scanners though. And the issue shouldn`t be whether or not the "terrorists have won". I believe it is whether these scanners are necessary and/or ethical. I can understand having suspicious people be scanned or patted down. But the average joe should just go through the x-ray and be done with it.

    @button_guy Fair enough. Upon further investigation, I learned the reason pregnant women shouldn`t fly is due to air pressure changes. Still, my original point remains valid. Full body scan = 20 minutes at cruising altitude. Not a concern for the average Joe.

    Define "suspicious people."

    See, that`s where the line gets fuzzy. If you start profiling, two things could and likely will happen:

    A) False searches, for whatever reason. A corrupt security officer could start sending people through just because he can, or someone could be sent through for acting "suspiciously" because they don`t like cops. People would get racially profiled, and then the debates start again.

    B) Your "average Joe" could turn out to be the one that IS a terrorist. Terrorists aren`t all one color, one religion, one x-factor. They can come from all races, all backgrounds, anywhere. The minute you start letting some people through because they seem "normal" to you, one of them is going to prove you dead wrong. And possibly just plain dead.

    I think people are being outraged just to be outraged. If they *actually* had a problem with the scanners, they would organize and refuse the scan. They couldn`t afford to do a thorough pat-down for everybody.

    Next time I fly I`ll certainly opt for the pat-down. Whoever gets to grab my groin is gonna be in for a real treat! (I mean my penis, not contraband)

    That is how Israeli airport security works, but I wish they wouldn`t single out Arabs.

    On the other hand what the TSA is doing is total BS (and I agree with CrakrJak`s post).

    Because American citizens are not accustomed to being being groped and / or electronically stripped. We have rights in this country. Rights that were established by our founding fathers and fought for by many brave men and women. I think it`s every American`s responsibility to demand every liberty we are entitled to. It`s the least we can do.

    Freak when you pass your medical equipment, or laptop through security. After a scan they pass a swipe over the equipment; then have their "what ever you call it" machine smell for explosives. Now why can`t they just have those machines sniffing out explosive materials on persons passing through instead?

By purchasing the ticket you understand that you need to comply with whatever restrictions that private company needs to set forth to comply with for government safety regulations. They give you the option to either go through the electronic body scan, or get a private pat down, or not get on the plane and choose another form of travel.
    Maybe it`s just me, but I`m not sure where the issue is.

    the issue has to do with it being overkill. there was nothing wrong with the old way. The video made an excellent point too. How far will they go? while showing the passengers completely naked on the plane.

    When they start requiring these scans when entering ANY private business maybe you`ll understand.

    @skullgrin - showing all passengers naked - reductio ad absurdum; however, all those passengers still CHOSE to fly, be it naked

    @IlDayo - if private businesses start requiring a full body scan you still have the choice not to enter those businesses.

    Just a question, do you think you should be scanned (be it metal detector or otherwise) when entering the White House?

    I propose having two queues at an airport, one where the security staff do all they can to maximise safety on a flight including full body scans etc and another where people can opt out and go for the old security checks and get on a different plane.

    I know which queue i`d be getting in.

    @jayno, if you refuse the scan and patdown, and decide to say "drat it" and just drive instead, you can be fined up to $10,000

    @Juggalette - By purchasing a ticket you are agreeing to the policies of that company. For airlines in the United States they must comply with the Air Commerce and Safety portions of the TSA. So even before you go into line you are agreeing to the safety measures. So you can`t then all of a sudden when asked to be scanned say "drat it, I`ll just drive". And the it`s up to $11 000 see here from TSA blog

    What if you bought your ticket before news of these regulations going into effect?
    It`s not like you would know the "enhanced groping" was going to go into effect between the time you ordered your non-refundable ticket and the time of the flight....

    I think that`s why the guy who said, "If you touch my junk, I`ll have you arrested," is getting a pass. What they`re trying to avoid, though, is letting terrorists "probe" the system by seeing how far they can get with bomb or weapon, and then backing out just before they get caught.

    No the issue is these "searches" are unwarranted and there for illegal. Even if its on private property they have no right to conduct a search with out a warrant. Also not to mention the possible health effects of the scanners. It may not hurt you to go through them once or twice but if you have to travel allot for work and are getting scanned 2-3 times a week there is a very real risk.

    As I recall, liberals were $#!++ing bricks over the Patriot act, but I haven`t heard many complaints from them over this.

    What`s more intrusive, someone showing probable cause to a judge and getting a warrant to find out if a terror suspect checked out books on bomb making, or some dude feeling up your junk without any reason to suspect you`ve done anything wrong?

    Or, which is worse, the FBI intercepting an email between a Taliban commander in Afghanistan and an al Qaeda leader in Yemen which happens to pass through a US server, or sexually assaulting a screaming, crying child?

    Or what`s worse, the FBI and CIA sharing information on foreign and domestic terror investigations, or the TSA guys sharing a nude picture of your daughter?

    Let`s place our outrage where it belongs.

    Oh, please. They are NOT sexually assaulting children. Be absolutely honest with yourself. If you can genuinely say that you believe they are MOLESTING CHILDREN, please re-evaluate the situation.

    They`re patting you down. They`re not groping your tits. They`re not sharing naked pictures of your children. Jesus Christ.

    "Oh, please. They are NOT sexually assaulting children."

    No? If a screener on her day off did this to a little three-year-old girl from her neighborhood, they`d put her UNDER the jail. And if she EVER got out, she would have to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life.

    But somehow, the exact same act that would land her in prison somehow magically stops being a sexual assault if she does it when she`s on duty at the airport.
