body scanners and pat downs
« on: November 17, 2010, 03:18:42 am »
I find this to a invasion of personal freedom and civil rights. The use of such technology is a virtual strip search and basically a form of rape. This government must be held accountable for such abuses of power. Nothing will stop a determined terrorist from taking a plane down. The use of less intrusive means can be used, using k9 dogs train for bomb sniffing , real checks on those whom are doing these acts such as the expired  student visa middle east individuals, other ways that don't violate your rights. This just gets me angry at my government. start by firing the head of TSA and work your way down. they are not real security just an illusion's of one.

Rape is sexual intercourse without consent.

It's questionable to what degree this situation is 'consented'. It's unquestionably NOT sexual intercourse.

So I think comparing it to rape is going a little far.

It might however be sexual assault in at least certain confined cases, and I agree with you that it's going too far.

Not sure I'd agree it's ineffective, just not effective enough to warrant the intrusion.
