Disgusting. Please, please, PLEASE get me out of this country.
There will always be criminally dangerous people. For every piece of technology that the police use to invade our privacy, the real criminals are finding a way around it. All that's left are law abiding citizens still forced to comply with invasive, wasteful, and flat out inhumane tactics that they don`t deserve.
If you`re going to invest time and money into anything, invest in police training. Most of those sh*theads seem to have absolutely atrocious priorities and even worse situational judgement.
Although they aren`t entirely to blame...their districts force money-grabbing quotas down their throats. Citizens are now just money opportunities. The police and the general public should always be on the same side, but I think most people are starting to realize that`s not the case...

How is detecting a gun on someone solving crime? THAT is a very good question @TheYoYoGuy! I eagerly await the politicians telling us an answer! Waiting... still waiting...
@Musuko42: I'm fairly certain that they EMIT some sort of radiation that bounces OFF your body, and from items UNDER your clothes too. "Bet The Farm" certain, eh?
BTW: I wish you`d make even the TINYEST attempt at research before supporting the Nazis, eh? Sadly that`s typical for you...
If I understand this correctly, the radiation they are detecting is radiation that your body is naturally sending out at all times.
They are not searching you. They are just interpreting the information your body is broadcasting. It is no more of a search than seeing the light reflected off the skin, or the audio waves that come out of your mouth.
You could claim that it's invasion because they are using a machine to detect something that human senses could naturally not detect. But does that then mean that all cameras or microphones or explosives particle detectors are an invasion?
It`s right and correct to be wary about new technology and their possible abuses. But we have to be careful not to make a big fuss over things that are actually benign; otherwise we end up ignored like the boy who cried wolf when something ACTUALLY evil rears its head.

Yep, another politician trying to convince us that we should sacrifice another freedom for our own safety. Another invasion of privacy where, in his eyes, the ends justify the means.
