I find very few government agencies to be worse than the TSA. The violate people’s rights with impunity every day. They aren’t good at what they do, and well – read this, from Wired:
The TSA, which has deployed at least 500 body scanners to at least 78 airports, said Tuesday the machines meet all safety standards and would remain in operation despite a “calculation error” in safety studies. The flawed results showed radiation levels 10 times higher than expected.
The reality? This agency shouldn’t even exist if we were to follow the limits in the Constitution. Don’t expect the federal thugs in DC to get rid of it though. It’s going to be up to the states – and a few of them are already working in that direction. See here.
