Kim Zetter reporting for Wired.com on the alleged targeting of attractive women for the porno scanners:
“She says to me, ‘Do you play tennis?’ And I said, ‘Why?’‘You just have such a cute figure,’” Ellen Terrell recalled to CBS News in Dallas.
The best part of this though is that there are over 500 complaints — so the TSA responded by:
When asked about the complaints, the TSA released a statement to CBS saying that scanners at the Dallas-Ft. Worth airport, as well as at the Love Field airport, had been upgraded so that they now showed only a generic body outline, rather than a detailed image.
Why even bother with these scans then? Wasn’t the point, from the get go, to have a detailed accurate scan to see if there is hidden contraband on the persons body? How then does this make sense?
Also: “Upgraded”???? I think the word you are looking for is “downgraded”.
My mind hurts.
