Full List Of Airports That Currently Have The Full Body Scanners In Case Anyone Was Wondering

I'm not really sure how to go about this subject. The people who work for the TSA and these new procedures are kind of evasive to our personal space. And people thought the Patriot Act right after 9/11 was bad.

I've been seeing a lot of reports on television lately about the uncomfortableness of the new pat-down procedures that the TSA is doing and these full body scanners. There is good and bad to all of this, but in MY opinion, if I have to wait an extra 20 minutes to go through security to make sure I am safe on a plane, by all means do it. With the pat downs, metal detectors, full body scanners, taking off your shoes, emptying your pockets, etc.

I know we are America and we want to exercise all of our opinions and civil liberties, we're supposed to be free and protected, and we basically have to strip to get onto a plane nowadays (which is uncomfortable for me and many for some), but there are real dangers out there and people who will try by ANY means to hurt us. Look, they are still sending out letters with white powder, and mail bombs. I don't want someone other than my GF or Wife touching my "junk", or see me "naked" and all that, but you can warn the TSA people not to get "too close" to your areas. They are supposed to listen. At least I hope they are supposed too. I can see the lawsuits lining up soon...

What needs to happen is profiling or random searches like they do overseas. Europe uses the full body scanners too. It works. Profiling sounds bad, can be bad, some abuse that option, but if you have ever noticed, especially in crimes, profiling works.

Chicago Midway International Airport, Houston William P. Hobby Airport, and Saipan International Airport are supposed to receive their full body scanners soon. Given that many of the airports in the list are major destinations, chances are someone's going to get a real good look at you the next time you fly (which could very well be this holiday season). Supposedly, TSA's goal is to up the amount of full body scanners to a 1000 by the end of 2011 too. [TSA via Geekosystem]
