You’ve heard so much about them in other areas of the country; now they’re here!

The Pasco Airport is implementing the new full-body scanner that has been the center of controversy since it’s widespread inception in the U.S. The full body scanning technology generally allows the TSA to see the person’s skin beneath their clothes. While Pasco Airport officials say it’s a silhouette of the person, there have been numerous complaints and even a lawsuit filed by the Electronic Privacy Information Center against the technology.

Groups opposed to the scanners say they allow agents to see potentially embarrassing physical features of people, and it’s even drawn the fire from the transgender community.

Legislation was introduced in 2010 that would have made scanners mandatory in the U.S. by 2013.

What are your thoughts about Pasco getting one of these scanners? Take our poll!
