Animated Version Of TSA Naked Scans And Gropings
from the must-see-tv dept
With all the recent stories of questionable TSA searches of people who opt out of both the TSA naked backscatter scanners and a personal groping by a TSA agent, it really was only a matter of time until the famed Taiwanese news animators NMA stepped up with an animated recreation, which I would say… um… takes some poetic licenses with the story — especially when it comes to the availability of a private search area for the grope. That said, it covers the story of the “don’t touch my junk” guy (and shows picketers with a sign saying that), as well as a planned protest of the machines for November 24th, one of the biggest travel days of the year.
Meanwhile, for those of us in the US (I know, I know, don’t blame me, blame Viacom), you can watch Stephen Colbert’s take on the TSA security mess, involving “x-raying your x-rated parts,” along with noting that it appears the company making most of these devices, Rapiscan, hopefully is not pronounced “rape-iscan”:
