Spirit Hammer: I don't have a problem with them laughing at my nekid body. I think it's pretty funny too.I DO have a problem with "arbitrarily punish disgruntled passengers by subjecting them to unjustified and pointless luggage searches
Generation_D: I really can't blame them. Mind-numbing $15 an hour job, stressful conditions, asshat customers non stop.
Generation_D: Why is TSA a big deal, again?
gja: 1. FYI: I am probably the WORST person to use as an example. I make my living in info-sec and forensics.I will happily send anyone that wishes a USB drive with an encrypted file and a challenge to open it for a $50K prize. It will not happen.2. I would never let ANYONE touched/possess/use/inspect my devices. EVER. I am the only 1 that will ever do so.
Smackledorfer: gja: My consternation is not with the actual image, but with the criminal trespass and betrayal of trustYou say that now, but earlier you were saying:gja: Because perhaps (and likely) they have not/will not, stop at "sees my beer gut" and might decide a nice long look at your wife's/young daughters parts are just what they were waiting for?Now how do you feel about that?As far as criminal trespass and betray of trust... well I guess if you trusted them to keep these images, about you admit are pretty much meaningless, confidential then ya I guess.Here is the thing: if I could give two shiats about the information they are looking at (my backscatter image) and you could give two shiats about it, and we cannot in this thread conceive of a reason to give two shiats about them or what harm the revealing of the information is, AND we agree that the images hold no more information about a person than a public viewing of them with clothes on (less even, because by themselves these images cannot even be identified as specific people, then what great trust were we placing in the TSA regarding the images?I don't like security theater, but whining about the backscatter pictures is much ado about nothing, and effort is much better spent addressing the cost/benefit of the program than the pictures.
Smackledorfer: browntimmy: The issue is we're giving positions of authority to people who are barely qualified to make Big Macs.Oh, is that the issue. Ok then.So pay them twice as much so bring in the talent?
Generation_D: At which point they will be committing several felonies
littlett's: Smackledorfer: You guys have no idea how it works, do you?Ok, if they can't get the files off the machine, they could probably use their cell phones to capture an image.
Citrate1007: One of the largest and most hated federal bureaucracies.....thanks GOP for pretending to keep me safe.
Generation_D: I really can't blame them. Mind-numbing $15 an hour job, stressful conditions, asshat customers non stop.Tell me why I should care if an anonymous mall cop level employee sees my beer gut in a scan? Better them than me.
Coastalgrl: I really want to go through the process with a radiation badge.
bronyaur1: tenpoundsofcheese: Thanks 0bama.Ahhh... more trolling from the alt who has been wrong about pretty much everything. And supporter of the party that created the TSA.
doczoidberg: Generation_D: I really can't blame them. Mind-numbing $15 an hour job, stressful conditions, asshat customers non stop.I WISH I made 15 dollars an hour.
syrynxx: People who are in a rush to enact gun legislation in the wake of an emotional tragedy should keep the TSA in mind. Warrantless nude searches of every flyer and humiliating groin pat-downs of children and people with medical devices like insulin pumps and breast pumps.
tenpoundsofcheese: Thanks 0bama.
