NYPD Commissioner says department
will begin testing a new high-tech
device that scans for concealed weapons

New York Daily News, by Rocco Parascandola

Get ready for scan-and-frisk. The NYPD will soon deploy new technology allowing police to detect guns carried by criminals without using the typical pat-down procedure, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Wednesday. The department just received a machine that reads terahertz — the natural energy emitted by people and inanimate objects — and allows police to view concealed weapons from a distance. “If something is obstructing the flow of that radiation, for example a weapon, the device will highlight that object,” Kelly said. A video image aired at a Police Foundation breakfast Wednesday showed an officer, clad in a New York

That´s nice.

Is there a device to scan politicians for brains, or souls?

God only knows what kind of damage/radiation this will direct into our bodies!

And here I thought citizens were protected from unreasonable search and seizure.

A variation of this X-ray device coming to big brother drones near you. The drones, on gun detection missions, hover over your house and X-ray it. If firearms are located, you get a big letter. If you ignore it, a phone call, followed up with a knock on the door. How far fetched is my thinking? Posters let me know if I´ve slipped into the crackpot realm.

Folks, nothing in this article talks about this device emitting radiation. From the description it appears to be a passive sensor detecting radiation naturally emitted by the body.

One does not, or should not, give up their right to privacy just because they walk down a street. This will probably be another waist of tax dollars when the courts, hopefully, rule that this is unconstitutional.

Radiation? Who that uses such a device really cares if they kill you with the radiation? It´s all about the misguided morons treating citizens like crap. Aren´t you used to it by now?

Well, recalling that the "real purpose" of all this hoopla "is" keeping us, and our kids especially, safe from wackos, I suggest using two readily-available systems now present everywhere in the US.

a. criminal records files: almost every perp has an encyclopedic rap-sheet on file

b. the courts: start imposing real sentences for the crimes on those rap sheets; they´ll get much shorter as the perps are locked up and not running loose, and we´ll have far fewer instances of innocents attacked, maimed, or killed on the 25th, 30th, or 40th arrest!

OP: Such a device would have fewer applications than a unicorn-horn buffer.

#8 is correct -- passive. Often-respected #11 is correct also.

#10: Ouch, but well-put. Thanks.

Meet Mr Poo: The lumpy, brown anthropomorphised faeces that is the face of Unicef´s latest public health campaign in India. Accompanied by an insanely catchy techno-Bollywood-style anthem, Mr Poo features in a very silly and surreal new video aimed at raising awareness of the health dangers associated with public defecation in India. Though the video is light-hearted; the issue is a serious one. Globally, India has the largest number of people, more than 620 million, still defecating in the open. Only about half the population of the country use toilets. According to the Poo2Loo campaign, which is supported

Ed Balls, the shadow chancellor, is being investigated by police after he crashed into a parked car and then drove off without informing the owner. The Labour MP for Morley and Outwood has admitted that he found himself in a “tight spot” and realised that he knocked the Peugeot 306 whilst making a seven point turn in his Ford Mondeo estate, but says he left the scene thinking he had not caused any damage. (Snip) It is the fourth time the Labour frontbencher, who once described his beloved 1.8 litre family car as the most expensive thing he has ever

Law firm that cleared Christie

governor´s group, report says

Trenton — The law firm hired by Gov. Chris Christie´s office that cleared him and current staff aides of any wrongdoing in the George Washington Bridge scandal donated $10,000 to a national political group the governor currently heads, according to a published report. The Record reported late Tuesday night that Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher gave $10,000 to the Republican Governors Association — nine days before it released a report that cleared the governor in last year´s controversial lane closings at the bridge. Although critics called the report a "whitewash," Christie said the firm´s lawyers have reputations to uphold and wouldn´t

A Philadelphia woman is facing federal charges for allegedly collecting five years worth of unemployment compensation and failing to report the income on her tax return forms, all while working full time for the Internal Revenue Service. Lora Lewis, 51, also allegedly took numerous tax credits for which she was not eligible, including a first-time homebuyers’ credit, an earned income credit and an education credit, the U.S. Attorney´s Office for Eastern Pennsylvania said. Lewis is further accused of claiming bogus tax deductions, including IRA contributions that were never made and an automobile that was never purchased, in a bid to

Police are investigating three recent attacks in the city they believe are part of the “knockout" game, in which an unsuspecting person is attacked for no reason with the goal of knocking the person out with one punch. The three attacks this month have occurred in the 700 block of Main Street, the area of 87 Millbury St. and on Chatham near Main Street. (Snip) Police said all three male victims were walking alone when they were approached by a male they did not know. The suspects would without provocation or warning punch the victims in the face or head

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
