Scanned Without Consent: NYPD Eyeing Full Body Scanners On The Streets To Detect Weapons

NYPD  are planning to use a new technology called “Terahertz Imaging Detection”.  The device uses radiation to scan people to see if they are carrying a firearm.  This is a violation of  the 4th amendment right of protection against unreasonable searches and seizures.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Little mention is made in this report about the health hazards of the radiation given off by the cameras.  Should the government be able to subject us to radiation without our knowledge?
