EPIC (the Electronic Privacy Information Center, a US group) has challenged the US government over the new body scanners in use over there. The combination of scanners irradiating and exposing travellers, the abusive and humiliating alternatives and the lack of any humanity on the party of the authorities means this is a symbol that the American public may finally have had enough. Let’s hope – looks like the immoral murdering scum they think they are targeting think it’s a good enough development that they are increasing their activity so as to give the TSA extra reasons for removing more dignity and liberty from travellers unchallenged.
