All I want for Christmas is...

Why?

There is really not a reason that I can grip on.  Pay what you owe.

This Daily News story is not a story about prostitution. Okay, this is a story about prostitution, but not the reasons that you think.  I am pro-choice.  If a woman (or a man) wants to sell a commodity (their body) to a buyer (john, or trick) at an agreed upon price, that is just capitalism.  I know that people will use the child sex slave scandals as a reason to disagree with prostitution, but incorrect usage is not a reason to deny…in theory consenting males and females should be able to enter into an agreement.

Sex is one of the biggest weapons anyone can utilize.  How many of you have done something to get into the sheets?  How many of us have done something like faked interest in something as an entry to starting a relationship?  Yes, some relationships, that are strong, are built on an initial lie.  Even for the people of ChristianMingle.com, who just happen to bombard the ESPN airwaves with their commercials.

Really, pay what you owe…

CARTAGENA, COLOMBIA – The Daily News published the first photos of the Colombian call girl whose encounter with a cheapskate Secret Service agent set off the agency’s worst sex scandal.

Dania Suarez, the 24-year-old single mom of a 9-year-old son, has gone into hiding as the scandal mushrooms, according to neighbors.

A friend stopped by late Wednesday to pick up her dog, a pug named Valentino, they said.

Suarez, originally from the island of San Andres, is a quiet tenant who rents a small apartment in a hacienda-style home for about $600 a month, neighbors said.

They often saw her go out late and come home at dawn, dangling her high heels in her hand.

ASSETS...Good enough to spank...

“She never told us what she did for a living but it was obvious,” said Maria Quintero, 31, who lives on the first floor of the three story white building.

“She was home all day and left late at night looking very nice,” Quintero said.

So, they knew what she did, but it was not a problem for them.  All seemingly agreed that she was a good mother, which must be hard, if you are having a kid at fifteen.

“I asked her if she worked, she said no. I asked her if her boyfriend helped her, she said no. Then it hit me.”

Another neighbor, Maria Estela Cubides, 45, said Suarez seemed to have a glamorous life out on the town, but kept to herself at home.

“She always left late at night. She traveled a lot, to fancy destinations,” Cubides said. “She never brought guys home. She kept to herself. I’m surprised she did all that noise to get her money. She’s not that kind of person.”

Another neighbor, Dona Betty, said Suarez told people she was a dancer.

“She showed up early in the morning, with her heels on her hands,” she said. “We suspected, but she keeps to herself. She is a good mother.”

Here is where the problem lies.  Prostitution is legal in Columbia, it is a business transaction.  PAY WHAT YOU OWE!

Prostitution is legal in Colombia, and escorts, hookers and streetwalkers crowd the streets of the tourist districts.

Suarez has said she was a “high class” escort who made $800 – 1.4 million pesos – a night to dress well and provide sparkling company as well as have sex.

The average Colombian household earns $287 a month.

Eleven Secret Service agents and nine military servicemen are under investigation for hiring 20 or 21 hookers in Cartagena last week when they were supposed to be preparing for President Obama’s April 13 arrival at a regional summit.

Suarez was one of the girls brought back to the posh Hotel Caribe to party with the G-men on the night of April 11.
According to the story Suarez has told friends and the press, the still-unnamed agent kicked her out of his room the next morning with only $28 in cab fare.

She caused a ruckus in the hallway, demanding her full payment, while the agent remained locked in the locked hotel room and wouldn’t come out.

Dude, just pay her.  Just pay her and we never hear about this, you get to keep your job and you don’t hurt the president. She did her part, met her terms in the contract.  Being too drunk is not an excuse.  This is also the reason to get the money first, because of fools like this.

Soon Cartagena cops got involved and while the payment dispute was ultimately settled by a whip-round among some of the other Secret Service agents, word reached the US Embassy.The men were ordered home, put on leave and stripped of their security clearances.

Three Secret Service agents, including two supervisors, were ousted Wednesday.

CBS News named two of the three Thursday: Greg Stokes, a supervisor who handled the bomb sniffing dogs, was fired. He is fighting to keep his job, exercising his option to appeal the firing.

Supervisor David Chaney, who was allowed to retire, was a second generation Secret Service agent: his dad, George Chaney, protected President Johnson.

More were on the verge of being canned.“Several more people will be pushed out either today or tomorrow,” Rep. Peter King (D-NY) said Thursday.

Two secret service agents have been given polygraphs and more are expected, two sources said.

ABC News reported that the men had booked a party space at the hotel expecting a bash for about 30 people.

“That allegation is coming from the media, but it is being checked out,” King said.

White House officials have said the president’s security was not compromised but investigators are looking into whether the agents left sensitive papers in their rooms where the hookers could have had access to them.

In addition, people on scene said the unnamed agent was still roaring drunk the next morning, when he got into the dispute with Suarez, and that could have affected his job performance.

It really is simple. You got to sample the goods...

Happy Non denomination holidays.  As Bing Crosby once sang, I’m dreaming of a White Christmas, but he certainly did not mean it this way…

Rick James Cocaine

Truer words have never been spoken Rick...

I wasn’t dreaming of a white Christmas, but reading this made me think of brotherly love and I came to the realizaation that I don’t love my brother this much…

Man Dies After Eating Ounce of Cocaine Out Of Brother’s Butt

  • Man Dies After Eating Ounce of Cocaine Out Of Brother's Butt

By JULIA JACOBOpix11.com | @wpix9:41 p.m. EST, December 20, 2011
SOUTH CAROLINA (PIX11)—
After eating an ounce of cocaine hidden in his brother’s buttocks, a South Carolina man died soon after.Deangelo Mitchell, 23, and his brother Wayne, 20, were in the back of a North Charleston Police Department cruiser on Nov. 30. The duo was being transported to jail when they began whispering about narcotics hidden inside the older sibling.

The Mitchells were arrested when a police officer found three small bags of cocaine underneath a rear seat of their 2001Chrysler. It is evident in video footage that Deangelo Mitchell encouraged his younger brother to ingest the cocaine. The older Mitchell has a lengthy record and was concerned that he could face life in prison if convicted of a narcotics charge. “I can’t get no more strikes,” he told his brother.

He further directed his brother to “Eat that s***” and “Chew that s***.”

In the footage, Wayne Mitchell can be seen, in handcuffs, reaching back to retrieve the cocaine from his brother. He then drops his head while he eats the cocaine.

Wayne Mitchell soon after began convulsing and bleeding from his mouth. “White powder residue” was found on the rear seat of the police cruiser, cops noted. Deangelo later said “he believed his brother swallowed an ounce of cocaine.”

Wayne Mitchell died within an hour of ingesting the cocaine.

Deangelo Mitchell was initially charged with narcotics trafficking and was released from custody after posting $50,000 bond. But after a review of the police footage, authorities rearrested him Tuesday, charging him with involuntary manslaughter in connection with his brother’s death.

Why was he acting like a cheerleader?  I mean, c’mon man…he is already doing you a solid…
What do you tell your family about this? Holidays are definitively going to be awkward from now on. Worse, is that there is video of the act…

Nice boob job, but you should work on the dye job...no way the drapes match the carpet

I am….

that she was stupid enough to get caught.

I would think that you would have a bagman for that kind of behavior.  You should never be caught with it.  You should not be photographed with it.  But, the drug is good enough that you cannot lay off it’s clutches.

Paris Hilton was arrested on the Las Vegas Strip late Friday after a police motorcycle officer smelled marijuana smoke wafting from a black Cadillac Escalade driven by her boyfriend, then found a small amount of cocaine in her purse.

A crowd quickly gathered when Hilton and Las Vegas nightclub mogul Cy Waits were stopped about 11:30 p.m. PDT Friday in the vehicle near the Wynn Las Vegas resort, police said.

The 29-year-old celebrity socialite was taken into the hotel “to keep her safe” during the initial investigation, police Lt. Wayne Holman said.

Police Officer Marcus Martin said the motorcycle officer pulled the Escalade over on Las Vegas Boulevard after noticing smoke that smelled like marijuana. Police later found a substance in Hilton’s purse that tests showed to be cocaine, Martin said. He didn’t say how much of the drug was found.

This dude doesn’t have a long career in Vegas is he is going to arrest moguls…

Hilton was arrested on suspicion of felony cocaine possession.

Waits, 34, was arrested on misdemeanor suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Both were booked into the Clark County jail, where Martin said Hilton was released without bail about 2:45 a.m. Saturday.

Less than an hour later, Hilton’s Twitter account was updated with a posting that said the actress was in bed watching the television show “Family Guy,” and then that she was going to sleep. It was unclear if the tweets came from her, were posted by time-release or were sent by someone else.

If convicted of the low-grade felony, Hilton would get probation. Any violation of probation would be punishable by one to four years in Nevada state prison.

Clark County District Attorney David Roger declined comment Saturday about the case.

Hilton’s attorney, David Chesnoff, told The Associated Press on Saturday morning that he was still gathering facts about the arrest.

“I caution people not to rush to judgment,” he said.

No, its okay.  I am going to rush to judgement.  She had the weed incident in South Africa during the world cup and she has been seen on camera smoking and she hangs out with cokeheads, so I am going to rush here to judge.  She is a coke head.  Fortunately, she has money, as I bet she would suck %$&@ for money, like Bob Saget.

Damn, be more DISCRETE!

Waits’ lawyer, Richard Schonfeld, said Waits posted $2,000 bail and was expected to be released Saturday.

Court appearance dates for Hilton and Waits were not immediately available.

Schonfeld said he was “troubled by the circumstances” leading to the arrest, but declined to specify his concerns.

“As the case proceeds, a lot of facts are going to come to light that will ultimately lead to exoneration,” Schonfeld said.

Hilton’s manager did not immediately respond early Saturday to telephone calls for comment. Hilton’s publicist, Dawn Miller, did not immediately return an e-mail message.

A spokeswoman for Wynn Resorts in Las Vegas declined immediate comment.

Waits and his twin brother, Jesse, are managing partners of the Tryst Nightclub inside Wynn Las Vegas, Drai’s after hours club at Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon, and XS The Nightclub at Wynn’s Encore resort.

How does this dude not have a bagman?  You run one of the most popular clubs in Vegas?  All you need to do is get home or get to the club BEFORE doing your drugs.  Out in the open is foolish.

Earlier this week, Hilton was in the news when a 31-year-old man allegedly tried to break into her Los Angeles home.

Authorities have said that someone carrying two big knives banged on Hilton’s window Tuesday. She posted a photo of the arrest on Twitter and described it as “scary.” Nathan Lee Parada faces a felony burglary charge.

Hilton was arrested this summer after the Brazil-Netherlands World Cup match in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, on suspicion of possession of marijuana. The case was then dropped at a midnight court hearing.

Hilton pleaded no contest in 2007 to alcohol-related reckless driving and was sentenced to 45 days in jail. After spending about 23 days in jail, Hilton told CNN host Larry King that the experience caused her to re-evaluate the role partying played in her life. She said she wanted “to help raise money for kids and for breast cancer and multiple sclerosis.”

While most famous for her tabloid exploits and reality TV series “The Simple Life,” Hilton has appeared in the films “Bottoms Up,””The Hottie & the Nottie” and “House of Wax.”

fashion your seat belts, its going to be a bumpy ride.....to jail

Sometimes, you want to tell someone that they can take this job and shove it.  But, before the words come out of your mouth, you realize the ramifications of taking that action.  You curse them quietly and then keep it moving.

Meet Steven Slater.  He should have been in Eminem’s video for Guilty Conscience

A JetBlue flight attendant got into an argument with a passenger on a jetliner arriving at John F. Kennedy International Airport Monday, then grabbed a beer from the galley, deployed an emergency exit slide and fled the plane, authorities said.

And though he could be seen smiling as authorities led him away from his nearby home in the Belle Harbor section of Queens, Steven Slater’s acquaintances and his apparent profile on a social networking site indicated that he has been dealing with some stressful events in his life.

Now, this is the difference in reading the MSN story and reading the NY Daily News.  Here is the first part of how they report  their story.

A JetBlue flight attendant blew his top, grabbed some beer and bolted out an emergency slide at Kennedy Airport Monday – then headed home to have sex with his boyfriend.

Now, why that information is necessary, I am not sure, but it does get you thinking about their readership and how they are doing.  MSN continues…

Slater was awaiting arraignment Tuesday in the New York City borough of Queens on charges of criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and trespassing. He remained in custody overnight.

By Monday night, several Facebook pages had been set up in tribute to Slater, who is facing charges of criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and trespassing, with many users of the social networking site expressing support for him for walking off the job. One such page had more than 5,000 fans early Tuesday.

Twitter users also showed support, with declarations such as “Steven Slater is totally my new hero” and “Steven Slater for SNL host!”

Slater was working on JetBlue Flight 1052 from Pittsburgh when he got into an argument with the passenger, who was pulling down baggage from an overhead bin, the Port Authority said.

The luggage apparently hit Slater in the head and he asked for an apology, but the passenger refused, the agency said.

As the plane was landing, Slater got on the public-address system and cursed at the passenger, the Port Authority said.

He then grabbed at least one beer, activated the slide, slid down and went to his car, it said. Port Authority police were notified about 25 minutes later.

If you are going to go out, then go out on top and Slater did…

Phil Catelinet, a passenger on the flight, said on the TODAY show that Slater ” was smiling — he was happy he had done this. He was happy he was done with his job at JetBlue.”

“I think it’s funny that he could quit his job that way … [but] I don’t think he thought this through.”

‘One day at a time’
A MySpace profile appearing to belong to Slater notes that: “Beating alcoholism and substance abuse ‘one day at a time’ has opened up new worlds of opportunity for me, and I am so thankful to those who have guided me along the path to successful living, and given me new wings to fly. See you above the clouds. …”

So much for sobriety…here is drinking to you Steven Slater!

F you stupid passenger!

Slater’s former roommate, John Rochelle, told The New York Times that Slater was rarely home, and often traveled to Thousand Oaks, Calif., to care for his ailing mother.

A neighbor of Slater’s mother told the newspaper that he had also cared for his father, who died of Lou Gehrig’s disease.

“It could be the pressure of his mother’s illness, because that’s not the type of behavior or conduct that Steve exhibits,” neighbor Ron Franz said. “He’s a very conscientious, responsible individual.”

A woman who answered a phone at a previous residence listed for Slater in Thousand Oaks, Calif., identified herself as his mother but said she wasn’t speaking to the media.

The district attorney told NBC News that Slater had not yet been arraigned, but that was likely to happen at a Tuesday morning court session.

JetBlue Airways Corp. said in a statement that it was working with the Federal Aviation Administration and Port Authority police to investigate the matter.

It said the safety of its customers and crew members was never at risk. JetBlue would not say how long Slater had been employed by the company.

A National Transportation Safety Board official said the incident was a result of “a little too much cabin pressure.”

The Associated Press and NBC News contributed to this report.

At least it wasn't to the face...or mouth

Now, if it stopped before the grocery store, you would have simply thought that I was talking about a porn shoot, or maybe giving you too much information about my private life.  But, this happened in public.  At a grocery store.  What was this dude thinking?

GAITHERSBURG, Md – As a woman was leaving a Giant store a man sprayed liquid on her back. An examination revealed the liquid was human semen.

It happened at the Giant store located at 842 Muddy Branch Road on July 15, 2010.

Thanks for the investigative reporting.  I will not be going to that store…

Now, I wonder if everything is big there...like the back shot...

Witnesses saw the man get into a gray vehicle and drive away.

On July 29, 2010, the Gaithersburg Police Investigative Section arrested 28-year-old Michael Wayne Edwards, Jr. of the 17000 block of Downing Street in Gaithersburg. Edwards was charged with second degree assault with additional charges forthcoming.

After his arrest and interview it was learned that there are additional unidentified victims. If you believe you have been a victim of such a crime and have seen Edwards please contact Detective Corporal Word at 301-258-6400.

An arrest warrant was obtained for Edwards. Edwards was released on a $4,000 bond.

Well, at least he is not totally shiftless, as he had enough money(or friends and family) to bond him out on the ten percent tip.

These days are long gone...focus on the books

I certainly hope so.  The time of prison might have shown him that playtime is over…

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State University says former football star Maurice Clarett has been granted re-entry to pursue his degree after he spent more than three years in prison.

They are not escorting you to the Heisman ceremony or class

Ohio State spokesman Jim Lynch says in a statement that Clarett started classes on Monday after he was readmitted by the College of Education and Human Ecology, where he was originally enrolled.

Clarett says in a statement that it is a “surreal feeling to be back at Ohio State” and that he doesn’t want to be a “distraction or nuisance” to the football team or other students.

Clarett led the Buckeyes to the 2002 national championship in his only college season. He pleaded guilty in 2006 to aggravated robbery and carrying a concealed weapon, and served 3½ years in a Toledo prison, where he took college-credit courses.

Maybe he got some credits in prison…I hope him good luck and that he truly learned from this lesson.  The education can take him farther than football…

How many more reasons to you need to convince you prison is not the place to be? STAY OUT OF PRISON!

The mention of sex parties and prison usually turn my stomach, because I think of the scene in American Me. (click to watch what I mean)

I never want to go to prison.  But, if I had to go, I want to go to this place…

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – The New York State Commission of Correction says top officials and staff were irresponsible when they authorized and failed to supervise a party at a youth prison where some violent offenders had sex with dates.

The commission faults the Office of Children and Family Services for directing the Goshen Secure Center in the Hudson Valley to hold the December party for four offenders as a reward for good behavior. They ranged in age from 17 to 20, three doing time for murder and one for armed robbery.

The commission says officials knew little about the four female guests, ranging from 16 to 27, who were driven from Albany and New York City by state workers in state vehicles.

OCFS says it has stopped social events and disciplined seven of its staff.

Now, I make light of this, but the real message is that prison is not the place to be for anyone.

That must have been some party...

Now I understand why Maradonna was so upset and why he took the job as coach in the first place.

The Colombian soccer team didn’t make the World Cup, but the country’s police made a great save to intercept a replica tournament trophy made entirely out of cocaine.

Colombia authorities seized the 14-inch replica trophy bound for Madrid at Bogota Airport Saturday, CNN reported.

The painstakingly engraved statue was painted gold with green stripes on the base to match the real trophy. It was bound, along with several team jerseys packed in the box, for an address in Madrid when it was intercepted in a warehouse inside the airport.

Colombian National Police said the “bad condition” of the gold paint on the trophy’s surface is what tipped them off.

The real World Cup trophy is almost as valuable — cast in solid 18-carat gold — but weighs about ten pounds less.

You have to applaud the creativity of the drug smugglers. Necessity is the mother of invention…

Doing lines has a different meaning to Maradona

This might be something to stab someone over...

Now, just about everyone has gotten into a disagreement with their parents or guardians.  It’s natural.  You want more freedom, they care about your safety and at times, those things come into conflict.  There has been many times when I have been faced with that conflict.  I just tried to de-escalate and plan for another time. Aaron Dean does not have the ability to control his urges.  I mean, I like cheeseburgers, but not enough to stab anyone over one.

Damn that must have been a good burger...

TOLEDO, OH (WTVG) — A Toledo teen is behind bars for allegedly stabbing his mother over a cheeseburger.

The altercation happened at 425 West Bancroft around 1 a.m. Friday morning.

Aaron Dean, 18, is accused of stabbing his mother over the burger.

Detectives say the teen’s mom came home with food for herself. Her son apparently got upset because she didn’t bring him a cheeseburger.

Police say he choked her, grabbed a butcher knife, and stabbed her in the right arm before running away.

We talked with Vergie Dean, Aaron’s mom, today. She told us she grabbed a cheeseburger from Rally’s and headed home.

She says her 6’3″ 300-pound son got upset because she didn’t bring one for him. “He was like ‘Where’s my food at?’ and I’m like ‘I’m not gonna give you anything’ so he smacked my sandwich and he pushed me or something and it escalated from there.”

Aaron allegedly grabbed and choked her. “He had me in the corner. I took a knife and I stabbed him in his finger. He ran in his room and grabbed a big ole butcher knife. He came back and was like ‘You cut me, you cut me.’ He was standing right there. He just took the knife and stuck it in my arm. ”

Detectives took the butcher knife as evidence.

They say Aaron Dean took off after the stabbing. He was arrested a block from his home, on Prescott Street.

His mother blames her son’s behavior on his mental illness. “He’s a paranoid schizophrenic and he ain’t been taking his medicine for one because he flips off. He be good sometime, then he get bad.”

Police charged the teen with felonious assault, false information, and drug abuse.

His mother says her son would rather buy drugs than food. “So to keep him from going in the streets to do the bad things, I give him money everyday.”

She says she doesn’t want him to stay in jail. “It’s not a good place for him there. He need to go to a mental hospital somewhere so he can get his head right because he might want to hurt somebody else on the street.”

Now that is motherly love…

Some ideas should never see the light of day.  Full Body scanners are one of them.  Remember this SNL skit on Bad Idea Jeans? (R.I.P. Phil Hartmann)

Vodpod videos no longer available.

For privacy concerns, the full body scanner is the Bad Idea jeans of 2010.  I was talking to my father about traveling and we both came to the conclusion that my children will never know the amount of freedom that we had pre-9/11.  I can remember making a flight when I was living in St. Paul leaving my house 40 minutes before the flight was scheduled to take off.  I made the flight easily and had time to ponder a snack before getting on the plane.  Those days of ease and freedom are clearly over and we have the terrorists to thank.  Our way of life has been irreparably changed.

Now, with the scanners, TSA agent Rolando Negrin finally had enough.

Airport security guard attacks colleague over ‘manhood’ jokes after walking through hi-tech body scanner

By Mail Foreign Service
Last updated at 3:18 PM on 7th May 2010

Rolando NegrinBreaking point: Rolando Negrin is accused of assaulting a colleague after enduring relentless jokes about how his manhood looked an an X-ray scanner

An airport security guard allegedly battered a colleague who ridiculed him about the size of his manhood after he walked through a hi-tech body scanner.

Miami-Dade Police say Rolando Negrin snapped because he ‘couldn’t take the jokes anymore’.

During a training session at Miami International Airport, Negrin’s co-workers had noticed his private parts as he walked through a new ‘whole body image’ machine.

The technology – designed to boost security at airports – shows extremely revealing images.

Over the next few days, 44-year-old Negrin was relentlessly ridiculed and lost his temper on May 4, it is claimed.

Maybe it was shrinkage, because he had been in the pool

but, you should never feel the need to fight over that, but the proof was in the pudding.  Most people will never know, but with these scanners, you can’t hide anymore.  Plus, what was the supervisor looking at?  I will let Riley Freeman give my response to that.

Police said Negrin confronted fellow screener Hugo Osorno in an airport car park and repeatedly beat him with a police baton while demanding an apology.

That is gansta.  That is some scarface type of street justice that was doled out on Hugo.  I guarantee that he will act right from now on.

The Miami incident echoes that of a similar case at Heathrow in March, where an airport worker was disciplined after ‘ogling’ a female colleague who had walked through one of the controversial scanners.

John Laker, 25, was given an official warning over sexual harassment by Heathrow operator BAA.

A police arrest report into the Miami incident said: ‘The X-ray revealed [Negrin’s genitals] and co-workers made fun of him on a daily basis.

‘They say that Negrin confronted Osorno in an airport parking lot after their shift.

Negrin wanted to ‘resolve a problem’, and get Osorno, 34, to ‘finally respect him’, said the report.

He allegedly pulled out a police baton and repeatedly struck Osorno while demanding an apology.

Witnesses told police that Negrin yelled, in Spanish: ‘Get on your knees or I will kill you and you better apologise.’

He was arrested and charged with aggravated battery when he turned up for work the following day.

Negrin has been released on $7,500 bail.

I am sure that it was worth it.  If I would a judge, I would have leniency on Negrin.  All it takes is one dude to start running his mouth and others think that this type of thing is okay.  Keeping with the theme of stun guns, had he had one and shocked him, I would have laughed at Hugo getting a taste of the taser.

Body scan

Exposed: The revealing full body scans alarm privacy campaigners

Passengers are likely to feel increasingly exposed as more stories emerge of airport staff around the world ‘mocking’ X-ray scanner nudity.

The human X-ray machines produce ‘naked’ images of passengers, enabling security staff to instantly spot any hidden weapons or explosives.

The full body scanners also show up any breast enlargements, false limbs, piercings, and a clear outline of passengers’ private parts.

However fears have been raised that they may not be safe for women in the early stages of pregnancy or children.

What happened to Rolando, will happen to others.  The tech has clear advantages, but in the hands of some of the stiffs that they have put in charge is dangerous.  They say that they will be well trained, but the training can’t solve for stupidity or perverts.

Privacy campaigners, meanwhile, have warned that other travellers might not want to be scanned because of the graphic nature of the images.

In March two Muslim women have become the first passengers in the UK to refuse to subject themselves to controversial ‘naked’ full body airport scans.

The pair – who security officials insist were selected at random – opted to miss their flight to Pakistan and forfeit tickets worth £400 each rather than be screened.

One of the women refused to go through the full-body scanner at Manchester Airport on religious grounds while her companion also declined for ‘medical reasons’.

The women were travelling together to Islamabad when they were selected to pass through the controversial security screen after checking-in at Terminal Two at the airport.

An estimated 15,000 people have already passed through the scanners in the UK, with the pair the first passengers to refuse a scan.

I am not trying to hide anything on my person when I am going through security.  I still think that the privacy concerns are real.  I would go through the scanner to avoid missing my flight, but the rights you use to have are now a part of lore of yesteryear.
