Airport security chiefs have been banned from subjecting children to a controversial new X-ray scanner that produces ‘naked’ pictures of passengers because of legal warnings the images may break child pornography laws.You'd have to have a heart of stone not to laugh, wouldn't you?
And in case that wasn't bad enough:
Airport bosses had originally intended to allow children to be scanned during the 12-month trial if their parents gave consent.More pandering to children's 'rights' above those of adults...
But they changed their minds after they were approached by the civil rights group Action on Rights for Children, which has campaigned against the use of body scanners on children.
The group argues the machines are disproportionately intrusive and remove a child’s right to dignity, particularly given that many youngsters are sensitive about their bodies.
