Airports across the country are adding body scanners for extra security, despite the controversial nature of the new technology.
Many worry about privacy and how much of a person’s body shows up on the scanners.
Kansas City International Airport recently added one of the scanners to Terminal B.
On Saturday, the “Liberty Restoration Project” protested the new security measures.
“I would rather see the airport, rather the airlines, chose their own security,” said protester Gabe Gryder. “We prefer the government get out of the way of the airlines.
The Transportation Security Administration says that an officer located in a room away from the scanners views the images, which aren’t able to be saved.
