So much for privacy, anonymity, and any notion of brevity. These full body scanners; scanners that do not ever work and may violate child pornography laws, are supposed to have a number of safe guards to protect the people forced to be subjected to them. The images are supposed to be instantly deleted, and the person(s) viewing the scan are not supposed to know who they are looking at. Instead, word got back to the scanners that a film star was about to go through and they printed out his scan. To add insult to injury, the star then signed his printed out naked image that the female security staff were circulating.
"the Transport Secretary’s assurances were demolished after it was revealed on the BBC’s Jonathan Ross show Friday that Indian actor Shahrukh Khan had passed through a body scan and later had the image of his naked body printed out and circulated by Heathrow security staff.
“I was a little scared. Something happens [inside the scans], and I came out. Then I saw these girls – they had these printouts. I looked at them. I thought they were some forms you had to fill. I said ‘give them to me’ – and you could see everything inside. So I autographed them for them,” stated Khan.
The story was carried by Yahoo News under the headline “Shah Rukh signs off sexy body-scan printouts at Heathrow”.
Khan’s reference to “girls” with printouts of his naked body scan can only refer to female airport security staff responsible for processing the images produced by the scanners, “professionals” who are supposed to instantly delete the images, according to Lord Adonis."
