Full body scanners come to Australian airports

From somewhere:
The Australian Government has introduced full body scanners at international gateway airports – Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Cairns, Darwin, Perth, Melbourne and Gold Coast - as part of its Strengthening Aviation Security Initiative.

Passengers departing Australia may be asked to pass through a body scanner. The body scanners use ‘millimetre wave technology’ as opposed to x-ray, and the Department of Infrastructure and Transport has reported that there are no known safety concerns for persons with pacemakers or any scientific evidence of any health risk for women who are pregnant.

There are some exemptions for people with serious medical conditions, infants and small children, and persons in wheelchairs; however a passenger cannot opt out of the process. Passengers who refuse to comply will not be permitted to board a flight for a period of 24 hours.

The Government has considered privacy concerns, and has made it a requirement that the scanners generate a generic ‘stick figure’ with no identifying features, and that no personal information about passengers or any individual screen scans be collected or stored.
The important thing, I think, is that you can not opt out. Even in the USA they let you opt out of body scanning - I have done this several times and found it to be a pretty painless experience (although I've seen only maybe one or two US citizens choosing to opt out).

There's no evidence that this technology adds anything to security. There's no evidence that it's safe over long time period (although this is millimeter wave, not x-ray). It's costing taxpayers (in the US each scanner costs around ~USD$170,000 - not sure how many are at each airport) a lot of money. It adds yet another step to long distance travel, which is already not exactly a lot of fun.

The EFF have an excellent post that summarises the problems they have with the US's rollout of body scanners.

Security dude Bruce Schneier has a couple of posts about them as well - this one showing how they can be exploited by trivial measures, and another showcasing a report from the DHS outlining other vulnerabilities. Oh, and they don't work to catch people trying to bring on explosives.

Wired have a good three part series which looks at various aspects as well, including whether or not they are safe (" “I view this as an uncontrolled radiological experiment,” said John Verdi, an EPIC attorney on the case" - though note again, the Australian scanners are apparently millimetre-wave ones, not X-ray backscatter) and how effective they are (how many cases have you heard of where body scanners have stopped terrorists, or criminals?).

Because Australia is the nanny country. They're trying to keep us safe from the terrori.... oh wait, that'd mean they're already here. Nevermind.

I wonder what they'd do if I shielded my nuts with tinfoil & told them scanning my nuts is not an option & to bring on the rubber gloves b******.

As for the extra delays, deal with it. Sucks if you frequently fly but s*** happens. I think peak hour traffic is more of a problem for more people than airport delays.

Travelling is becoming a longer and longer experience when in reality and with all this new technology it should be a quicker experience

You have to get to the airport super early to clear security and in some cases in America clear it more then once!

I still love travelling but to take a 1 hour flight is like a 6 hour extravaganza from the time you leave your home and arrive at the destination.

There ya go, fixed.

Whoop:
...told them scanning my nuts is not an option & to bring on the rubber gloves b******.

Whilst I have no doubts this might be a good avenue to pursue if you wanted 'easy money' in litigation, I'd just as soon 'get scanned' and not have someone 'giving me a few extra digits' and call it even.

Pinky:

I don't think the real problem is the 'average white male' going through one of these scanners (to be honest I'm in the same boat as you Pinky, I, personally, couldn't care) but consider if it's your 12yr old son or daughter, and there's one particular [lets say, large sweaty male] security guard that 'insists on all the children using his scanner'...
For mine, the likely hood that some crime GENUINELY being averted vs the colossal stuff around and implications for everyone else is greatly disproportional.

Faceman:
I'm not sure when you switched your meds mate, or if this is a little bit more of a passive approach from you, but I think the manner in which you've posted above is EXACTLY enough to encourage others to at least 'consider' your point; rather than consider you in need of a straight jacket. :P

slaps_forehead:
I'd be ok with a system like that, IF there were no side effects of being bombarded by x-rays in the kind of exposure that something like that would require (hell, I'd take a hi-def, high FPS camera and record 'my running' through it on a few passes just to see what it looked like!)

Crazymorton:
I thing Trog's point is an excellent one. Consider an alternative situation; say you get pulled over by a cop (a random traffic stop, or perhaps (hypothetically) if you're driving into an airport... would you still think it okay to be asked to have your junk scanned by the P.D.?
(Admittedly, the above scenario is a bit of a stretch, and flying in Australia 'isn't a right, it is a privilege')

flying is not a "right" anywhere. it's a personal or business choice. your extending that bow by choosing a nonsensical argument about "scanning junk". If in your scenario the cop pulled me over and wanted to conduct a full body scan then no i wouldn't mind at all, I've got nothing to hide and if it's legislated I don't care. I don't feel like my rights and privacy are impinged.

Same as when I'm pulled over and asked for a random breath test, does this erode my rights and privacy? what's the difference?

It's really not just about nudie shots... but even then I find it utterly bizarre that you'd so casually accept such a violation of your privacy when there is zero evidence that it offers any benefits whatsoever? It costs you actual money and makes travel slower and more frustrating.

well, if you don't care because you have nothing to hide, then surely you won't mind installing some cameras into your bedroom?

I kind of expect my junk to have the privacy of not being photographed while i'm out in public, sort of why I put pants on before I head outside.

flying is not a "right" anywhere. it's a personal or business choice.

since when did traveling of any type revoke your right to be treated with dignity?

being treated with respect and dignity is a human right, something that was suppose to come into stronger force against parliament laws in 2011

that being said, the implementation in Australia just shows a generic human outline which just highlights areas of concern.

What litigation? Who said I don't just want my nuts fondled by airport staff? Also to make their job as hard as possible. Can you imagine how pissed airport staff would be if every single person just said nope, not getting scanned, glove me. Sure it would create delays, and wreak havoc, but that's the idea. Show them we won't put up with that s***. Create a massive backlog of passengers waiting to be frisked and sooner or later they'll have to scrap it because no one will be flying anywhere and they'll lose money.

Unfortunately no one would have the balls (lol pun) to do it so you're all stuck getting your nuts irradiated.

crazymorton: liberty presumes that people are law abiding and not required to be subjected to unnecessary searches.

TSA and all this bulls*** scanning presumes everyone is a criminal first. it is akin to issuing a final warning to every one of your employees when only one has poor performance.

Not to mention that this law has created ANOTHER government agency which jacks up the cost of flying for everyone involved, employing dropkicks who wouldn't get a job elsewhere.

The government loves to use salacious and horrific events to enlarge its power - it has been doing it since the beginning. The founding fathers in America are turning in their graves.

Citizens need to say enough is enough and overturn such bulls*** laws.

i'm not sure both those are good examples, 1 fatality being the hijacker in the second, no fatalities or injuries in the first. both hijackers were overpowered.

Why don't we just scan everyone who gets on a bus, they get hijacked in Australia much more often.

6 men tried to hijack an airplane in china in July this year, 2 of the hijackers were beaten to death and the rest were subdued.

Did they get on board with machete's taped to their legs and guns in their carryon? or was the attack less successful because they were as armed as the passengers?

Stopping lunatics from flying with weapons is a good thing in my view. It gives the passengers a chance to stop them. While security has been increased for passenger screening since 9/11 incident, the main change is now passengers know that they have about 15-20 minutes to disarm the hijackers and convince ground control that they have done so successfully, or they might as well not have.

you know that (with out going into details) it isn't really that hard to enter a airport with items usable as a weapon,

there is also the target value verses the hassle and risk, and quite frankly there just are not the targets here, and any plane that might go to a target of value will itself be less viable as a terror weapon (due to being much lower on fuel) it would be much easier to hijack a domestic aircraft, ie if your target was some sight in sydney, grab a perth flight out of sydney on a A330, which is large, and fuller of fuel than most other jets,

also, the airports themselves are more of a risk imo, I mean, it would be easier to get the terminal cleared, and make a strike out the front, so, the scanners are more about looking like they are doing something, than doing any really effective

You are smarter than the government!

Schneier always talks about this. It's the same thing as putting 17 locks on your front door - it doesn't actually make you any safer, because a serious burglar will just go in through a window.

Similarly with air travel - there hasn't been a serious incident since 9/11 because terrorists know that attack vector is plugged. Not because of all the "security" measures, but because they know that passengers and crew will no long sit idly by and let them fly a plane into a building (also because of reinforced c***pit doors).

9/11 was a target of opportunity that was cleverly exploited; it is massively massively unlikely that an attack like that will ever happen again. So any new terror attack will come from another avenue while everyone is distracted taking their shoes off at airports.

I don't see the point of these examples; they're both ancient and current (and dated) non-body-scanning technology would have been enough to stop them. In fact the Trans Australia Airlines Flight 408 seems like a completely bad example to use given the first sentence in it says "arguably the first reported skyjacking/hijacking in the world" so maybe in the 52 years since it happens people have learned a trick or two which is why airline hijackings are so staggeringly rare.

Worrying about that stuff is like worrying about getting hit by lightning. You're heaps more likely to be in a car accident or get hit by a car or something mundane.

If you could point to a couple examples where mm-wave body scanners has saved anyone's life, or any case in the post 9/11 world where they would have saved someone's life traveling in Australia maybe then we can have start talking about how efficacious they are!

I tell you who else hasn't broken any laws and deserves civil liberties? Asylum seekers (which for infi's benefit I will now refer to us boat-people). They haven't broken any laws yet you are all for condemning them to persecution and possible death by sending them back where they came from because you think it is too expensive to grant them basic human rights. More evidence that you are a s***-talking blow-hard wanker.

It's amazing how far reaching xenophobia against brown people can extend. It causes airports to spend millions on security theater such as these scanners and also to find its way into government policy with its little fear campaign that people like infi have bought into hook, line and sinker.

And you unashamedly think and do a lot of things infi. That is what makes you the completely worthless c*** that you are.

He successfully appealed the sentence in the Queensland Criminal Court as he argued that the aircraft which was thirty five minutes into the flight, was over New South Wales when he armed the explosives in the aircraft toilet. He served a three year sentence in Brisbane, for attempted murder and on discharge was arrested by detectives from New South Wales. He faced court again and was convicted on the charge of attempted destruction of an aircraft and he spent seven more years in prison in New South Wales.

Dumb is shoveling OUR taxes out the door to random people who just turn up here with their hand out.

Party time - welfare payments for asylum seekers.

I'm worthless because I don't want to have my money stolen from me and given to other people who don't even live in my country. Holy s***!

it's just like I'm worthless if I don't want to send my money to the other side of the globe in a carbon trading scheme.

It's just like I'm worthless if I don't trust in the government taking nude photos of me with their scanners and that they wont get leaked onto the internet.

You other idiots can trust the government and give them all your money to give to other people. Leave me out of it!

Are you serious? A newsdotcomdotau article? lol

Civil liberties are only worthwhile if they apply to everyone. It's asinine to believe that some people should deserve human rights and some people shouldn't just because of their individual circumstances. Picture for a second that you are a brown savage, and that you want your family to have healthy food, clean water, and people not murdering them. You risk it all in an attempt to seek asylum in Australia but unfortunately ignorant pieces of gullible s*** like infi are blocking you. Wouldn't you say you are putting their families in harm's way by doing this? By your logic they then have a right not to care about you because of that.

This derail has gone on long enough. infi will never change his mind because daddy has been pumping him full of lies his whole life and you received a nice little cash bonus from your corrupt mate Santo, so your loyalty to your party is assured. I just wanted to point out how f*****g ironic infi's little speech was. My point is though that civil liberties must apply to everyone at all times no matter what the circumstances, because what happens if one day you are part of the group who they don't apply to?

And seriously, I can't stop laughing at that article you posted. What a joke.

I feel that it can only enhance the quality of your argument when you resort to calling the person you're arguing with a dumb, racist, asinine, corrupt piece of s***.

Who's arguing? Was just pointing out his hypocrisy.

Plus this is the silly little QGL forum, if you aren't name calling then you're doing it wrong. And you forgot gullible.

Well, you can pretty much call off the war on terror, America, I'm fairly sure they won it ages ago. This is just another bit of evidence of that.
