TSA Backlash Week: New Jersey!

"TRENTON - The use of full-body scanners at airports should be reconsidered because the machines are ineffective, are overly intrusive, and open the door to further invasions of privacy depending on how the images are retained, New Jersey lawmakers said Monday as they announced a resolution urging Congress to review the program.

The effort brought together members of both political parties and both houses of the state Legislature as well as the American Civil Liberties Union. The resolution calls the scans a 'gross violation' of the Fourth Amendment right against unreasonable search and seizure and says the machines' effectiveness has not been sufficiently proven."
