I can't imagine any situation where this would be ruled constitutional.
I also think it is hilariously ironic that the first comment decries the use of stop-and-frisk by NYPD (which still MUST be based on reasonable suspicion, and is practiced by every officer in every department, everyday.) but then sings the praises of this machine which is essentially "searching" everyone going by. We're beyond worrying about violations of our rights it seems. We only care if we're inconvenienced by the perceived violation. A dangerous slippery slope."If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970

This is similar to the thermal imagery that had been used buy Narcs to find grow houses. That was found to be unconstitutional."A Knights Oath

I don't see it being constitutional for random use. Maybe at a stadium or similar set up where you'd put a magnetometer... but to drive down the street, scanning people? Not a chance.Voting against incumbents until we get a Congress that does its job.

Old People, like me, may not be around to witness the destruction of our Nation. The rest of you may not survive the collapse. We all have the sworn duty to prevent it.
