Outrage was growing today over the abuse of naked airport body scanners after it was revealed that a Heathrow worker perved over a naked image of a female colleague after she passed through one of the devices, before commenting, “I love those gigantic tits”.
Jo Margetson, 29, reported John Laker, 25, to the police after she had entered the x-ray machine by mistake and Laker took the image before making lewd comments.
One of the most important aspects of this story which the media has completely failed to mention is the fact that, despite a barrage of propaganda on behalf of the government claiming that the images produced do not show sensitive areas of the body in detail, the fact that Laker was clearly able to distinguish Margetson’s breasts proves once again that the scanners do show crisp details of genitals and other sensitive body parts.
As we have exhaustively emphasized, the body scanners do allow airport workers to see intricate details of your body – penis length, breast size, implants, piercings, including crystal clear naked shots of your children. The fact that authorities initially lied and denied this was the case as part of the agenda to hastily install scanners after the staged Christmas bombing incident was clearly a case of mass public deception and one of the primary reasons why the scanners need to be removed now.
Action for Rights of Children warned that the scanners broke child porn laws in the UK after their widespread introduction, but the government refused to make an exception and now force all Brits who are asked to go through the scanners without the alternative option of a pat down. If travelers refuse then they are barred from flying, another complete violation of the basic human right to mobility.
“I can’t bear to think about the body scanner thing,” Margetson told the Sun last night, “”I’m totally traumatised. I’ve spoken to the police about it. I’m in too much of a state to go to work.”
Laker was given a formal warning for harassment by police and faces the sack.
“When privacy-invading machines are installed at our airports, abuses like this are inevitable,” said Barrister Alex Deane, director of Big Brother Watch. “We are disturbed to hear of this case, which will lead to greater calls for these scanners to be banned.”
“For every official caught ogling like this, there are plenty more eyeing up law-abiding travellers. These expensive machines are totally disproportionate.”
As we reported last month, Indian film star Shahrukh Khan claimed that Heathrow staff printed out and circulated an image of him taken by the naked body scanner. Heathrow denied the claim but Khan did not make a retraction and had no motive for inventing the story.
Airport security staff workers are among the least trustworthy people to operate these machines. These individuals are routinely caught abusing their authority for their own ego trip or sexual perversion.
As the video below illustrates, the fact that naked body scanner machines in the U.S. are manned by TSA thugs who are routinely caught abusing their power in treating the public like prison inmates only heightens the danger posed by the use abuse of the new devices.
People in the United States need to lobby for states to pass laws nullifying use of the body scanners as a threat to privacy, health, and a total violation of human dignity, a virtual strip search that wouldn’t even have stopped the Christmas day bomber who was allowed to board the plane as a result of a U.S. State Department directive.
Idaho is leading the revolt, by passing a law that limits the use of the x-ray scanning devices in airports and government buildings and also forces Homeland Security to disprove health concerns.
We are joining the hundreds of other Americans who have filed complaints in protesting naked body scanners as an affront to privacy, dignity, and a health risk, by launching our naked body scanner contest in an effort to focus public attention on how we must stop these machines now before they are installed in the streets and become another tool of control and oppression as part of the prison planet being constructed around us.
Not only have authorities in Europe promised to roll out mobile body scanners on the streets to mass scan crowds of people, but Homeland Security has even gone a step further, developing Orwellian mind-reading devices that are set to be installed as part of unconstitutional checkpoints at public events.
