The Transportation Security Administration will soon begin using new software, which doesn’t show naked images of those who go through body scanners.
In an effort to improve safety for inmates and officers, the Cook County Jail has installed new high-tech body-scanning machines, Sheriff Tom Dart said Tuesday.
On the busiest travel day of the year, the threat of a protest over security screening procedures hangs over O’Hare International Airport and the rest of the nation’s airports.
A loosely organized Internet campaign is urging people to refuse the scans on Wednesday in what is being called National Opt-Out Day. Could it cause a huge travel mess?
Passengers normally don’t want to see long lines at the airport, but a protest against stepped up security is gaining momentum and it threatens to make a very busy air travel day worse than ever.
The U.S. Homeland Security chief insists there are privacy safeguards, as passengers complain about the machines’ intrusiveness.
