If you set off the metal detector at the Air Port and are singled out for a TSA search, do you...
opt for the full body pat down or the full body scan!
I'll go with the scan. I don't want anyone invading my space with their grubby paws. I'll take my chances with the visual view.
This is a personal decission. Do you want a picture of you to be viewed by one or more persons that you don't know and may never even see.
Or would you rather have a person you don't know, sliding their hands across your body feeling for anything unusual, and yes reaching high into the groin, buttox, and other private areas.
Personally, I would rather have the pat-down and request a female officer. At my age any touching, or sexual advances are welcome.
Sometimes you don't get to choose and undergo both - randomly of course, just to keep them terrorists hopping?
Name one instance that TSA averted any bombing with the screening procedures being applied to everyone equally?
The tragedy is that there are more effective ways in England and in Israel - Why aren't we doing what they are doing?
The safest airport is Ben Gurion International, in Tel Aviv. ... THE SAFEST airline in the world, it is widely agreed, is El Al, Israel's national carrier
Both the options are equally derogatory. Still I personally would prefer the full body scan than any groping.
I'm with Terry above. After 10 years in the Navy, nothing on my body is sacred or unknown to the government. Might as well have some fun! Haha.
I'll go for the full body scan. I don't want those creeps touching my junk.
