TSA Making New Effort To Protect Passenger Privacy

| Filed under: Tech TalkBusiness Blitz

tsa making new effort with passenger security

It's a start!

Ever since TSA introduced new full body scanners that show extremely details images of fliers' bodies, LOTS of people have been complaining…and it looks like the Transportation Security Administration is finally going to do something about it.

TSA has announced that they'll adjust their full body scanners, so that they'll still show potentially dangerous hidden items, but without showing passengers' "naked" images. They'll use generic images instead.

Here's what TSA Adminstrator John Pistole had to say about it:

"This software upgrade enables us to continue providing a high level of security through advanced imaging technology screening, while improving the passenger experience at checkpoints."

Critics are not appeased, and are complaining that their privacy is still being violated. Others are also nervous about the low doses of radiation emitted from the machines' high-speed X-rays, and OTHERS say that it's all a waste because the machines aren't effective!

Clearly, there are much bigger issues here, but we are pleased that TSA is at least making somewhat of an effort to listen to passengers' complaints and respect their privacy.

What do U think? Are U pleased with TSA's efforts here? Or is it not enough?

    No, they don't care about privacy. No, the radiation levels aren't "low." No, you have no idea what you're talking about, so please shut the fuck up, Mario.

    The only time your opinion about real issues is valid is when we need the opinion of a complete idiot to compare and contrast with real and intelligent opinions. We don't give a shit how "pleased" you are with the TSA.

    I hope the TSA shows everyone your hair-plugs you fucking imbecile.

    You're still getting who knows what doses of radiation. I read somewhere that there's been a cancer cluster in some TSA workers, but they won't let the workers see the levels that exist around where they work. A radiologist told me he won't go through them, something about unzipping DNA. I think they should profile like Israel does.
