2 Body Scanners Installed At Ontario International Airport

ONTARIO (AP) — Body scanners are now in operation at Ontario International Airport.

Transportation Security Administration spokesman Nico Melendez says two scanners were installed in the two Ontario terminals.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise says the Terminal 4 scanner went into service Monday and the Terminal 2 scanner should be operational next week.

The devices reveal passengers’ bodies to security staff. Those who decline face personal touch pat-downs by TSA employees.

Palm Springs International Airport will receive its first scanners next week.

    Isn’t it considered child molestation when TSA pats down a child or is it considered child porn when a child is x-rayed? TSA are just Security guards, some of these individuals I wouldn’t trust.
