WASHINGTON – The TSA announced that they will be selling naked body scans of passengers on EBay to help pay off the national debt.
The TSA promised that if they used body scanners, the images of our naked bodies will never be public. But Gizmodo reported today that U.S. Marshals in a Florida Federal courthouse saved 35,000 images on their scanner.
WWN has researched this incident further and has discovered that not only is the TSA saving the scans, they are selling the on Ebay. Soon your “junk” will be online for anybody to buy!!
A Gizmodo investigation revealed 100 of the photographs saved by the Gen 2 millimeter wave scanner from Brijot Imaging Systems, Inc., obtained by a FOIA request after it was recently revealed that U.S. Marshals operating the machine in the Orlando, Florida courthouse had improperly saved images of the scans of public servants and private citizens.
Here’s one of the photos (courtesy of Gizmodo):
Gizmodo understood that leakin these photographs demonstrates the security limitations of not just this particular machine, but millimeter wave and x-ray backscatter body scanners operated by federal employees in our courthouses and by TSA officers in airports across the country. That we can see these images today almost guarantees that others will be seeing similar images in the future. If you’re lucky, it might even be a picture of you or your family.
WWN was able to purchase, online, a number of scans of passengers. We are not going to release the pictures, but we have naked body scans of 40 people. Here are a few:
1) Jessica Modrian, 45 of West Palm Beach
2) John Comito, 32 of Las Vegas,
3) Willa Puentes, 23 of Waco, TX
4) Mel Taylor, 57 Arlington, VA
5) Lindsay Lohan, 26, Santa Monica, CA
6) Sal Grimaldi 47, Brooklyn, New York
7) Missy Smithers, 28, Manhattan, New York
8) Rob Dachille, 36, Butte, MT
9 ) Sister Mary Wright, 49, New Orleans, LA
10) Tommy & Tammy Tublin, 8, Scottsdale, AZ
We suggest you contact your Congressperson and Senator and have them put a stop to the unlawful sales of your naked body scans!!
