Redacting all but your privacy – DHS Voyeurism, Backscatter Vans and Body-scanners

Owen Myles, Contributing Writer
Activist Post

Apparently public information can be redacted into an unaccountable oblivion, and the only boundary to black-marks are your private parts where they end for the sake of voyeurism. EPIC’s Freedom of Information Act request was answered with what looks more like a Hubble malfunction than a document regarding body-scanners and mobile X-ray (Backscatter) vans. See PDF.

The implication of such things are many, and it is not surprising that the very agency vigilantly attempting to criminalize normal civilians would want to keep these technologies as private as possible while applying them on the public. The good news – however hopeless – is that EPIC has filed suit to force disclosure of these documents. If it is the public who are to be the subjects of this technology, then it is the public who should be thoroughly informed of it. The DHS clearly opposes this, and seeks to covertly employ their spyware wherever they can. We really must ask where this will stop if left unchecked. The likeliest answer is that it will not.

Hell, how bad could "flying in an airplane for 15 minutes" be if it's only done every - f'n - where we go, like 24/7? That sounds perfectly fine to me. Just think, you could have two children in one - maybe three. With the DHS's new public irradiation campaign, and omnipresent X-ray blasters, you can have that 3 headed baby you've been waiting for.

Has that Mccy D's cheeseburger of yours gone cold? Just wait for the next DHS van to pass by, and enjoy a portable microwave on the odd minute of every hour. There's always an activist or elderly person somewhere near in need of being unlethally addressed.

Looking for that new love in your life, that sexy companion you've been thinking about? Just wait for the next DHS van to roll by, and if we don't blast 'em, they're alright with us. And if they're alright with us, they're alright with you. Any questions?

Why is the crime syndicate posing as government so determined to use radiation against our citizenry absent any justifiable reason. There is an evil infatuation with radiation in different forms that needs to cease. Yesterday!

Now just imagine for a moment, if a normal citizen was meandering all over a city with a device that no more than emitted equivalent radiation. There would be helicopters in the sky, and swat teams roaming the streets. Yes, I know it is already that way, but there would be even more. This is frog's hair more than double standards. It is Extreme. And then they want "smart" meters too, so that no one in a metropolitan area will ever have a single moment without exposure to some form of hostile wave, or radiation. And anyone who complains will be tazed and beaten. Yeah, this is stupid stuff. How many more f**ked up programs will be imposed on society? How many can we even tolerate?

I guess with all this protection ccourtesy of the DHS, we all get a dose of cancer.

I would rather get his by the truck.

Every cellphone tower puts out 50,000 watts pulsed microwave to fry your brains 24/7. As a comparison, in Switzerland, the maximum limit for towers is 1 watt. Your US cellphone puts out more radiation than that. And health effects of these microwaves are "indistinguishable from x-ray exposure" according to one study. You will be irradiated whether you like it or not.

And this is the same government that goes bonkers that someone might be smoking a little pot. Amazing.
