Question by Water Over Gold: Do you think using full-body scanners at airports violates the 4th amendment?
Do you have to have probable cause and a warrant before you can do a full body scan?? Or will airport personal be able to randomly scan whoever they want??
The Transportation Security Administration is feeling public heat these days over its combination of whole-body-image scanners and heavy-handed pat-down searches, and deservedly so. There’s no question that reform is needed to curtail TSA’s excesses. We especially applaud the Electronic Privacy Information Center’s efforts to increase public awareness about the body scanners.
While the film is extremely compelling, it turns out that there’s actually a better way to learn about and visualize the human body than by watching Osmosis Jones on repeat. It used to be that students and the anatomically curious had to turn to pictures in textbooks or plastic models (Gasp! I know!) to get a virtual tour of the human body.
VueScan 9.3.17, an easy-to-use replacement for the software that usually comes with scanners and that supports most flatbed scanners, printer/scanners, and film scanners, has been released and is now available for download.
The VueScan project is under constant development, and fixes, changes, and new features are implemented on a regular basis.
