D.H.S. PLANS TO STOP TERRORISTS BY LOOKING AT PEOPLES FACIAL EXPRESSIONS
Dr. Laurie Roth Ph.D.
Now, our brilliant scientists are planning to help REALLY stop terror on our planes and God knows where else, by finally checking something that makes sense…. and what is that you may ask? Could it be they are finally searching ALL bags? NO; Could it be they are finally doing background checks on ALL employees that even get close to a plane, i.e. food service, baggage handling, tarmac services, NO; Could it be they are finally searching folks who at least generically fit a defined and more risky profile, rather than obsessing over Granny and the grand kids? NO; Are we talking about arming and training the flight attendants? NO; Are we going to stop the wave of illegal aliens with mystery intentions and mystery countries that flow through our airports? A BIG NO.
So then, what is the great new addition to airport security to get the bad guys and keep the planes flying? According to an article posted on McClatchy Washington Bureau, we can all be saved now by the new Behavior Detection Officers that are a part of security upgrades hanging out all over, as ticket checkers, the attendant that checks your lap top or a curb side baggage handler.
In other words, these saviors to our safety will be flowing all over, just looking for nasty facial expressions by YOU. Apparently, there is all kinds of "science" out there theorizing that this program piloted in 2006 can identify folks trying to conceal their emotions, it can catch liars, notice those scary shifty eyes and sweat. This is supposed to be a giant leap forward!!!!
I couldn't agree more. Yes, it is a giant leap forward INTO INSANITY!!!! Lets get to the bottom line here…..so these new "brave new world" Behavior Detection Officers will make sure if you slippery characters reading this, walk through the airport after a fight with your husband and have a big furrow in your brow, are sweating, perhaps appearing to channel your emotion of rage, you will be stopped. A lady going through a hard stage in menopause and is sweating a lot….pulled over. You are scared of flying and are staring at the 3 middle eastern looking guys with turbans, walking boldly onto the plane, you look scared and are breaking out in a sweat….pulled over.
I'm sorry but do these "Gods" of science at all see the herd of elephants slamming through the room as they hyper focus on the gopher in his hole…..again? I'm not suggesting that profiling, the RIGHT high risk folks can be easy or done right all the time, but if the WWII group of leaders were thrown at us all today WOULD WE BE GOING OUT OF OUR WAY TO AVOID PROFILING MEMBERS OF THE NAZI PARTY? Would our leaders back then have obsessed over our facial expressions, rather than pull guys or ladies with Turbans who are speaking Arabic and acting strangely off planes? NO. THEY WOULD HAVE PROFILED THOSE WHO HAVE ALREADY PROFILED THEMSELVES WORLDWIDE THROUGH THEIR OBSESSION AND COMMITEMENT TO JIHAD AND KILLING.
It is a total red herring and fake out to the American people to focus
in and pretend there is enough science to understand "facial" expressions!
Can you say, let the lawsuits begin because of all the mistakes that
will happen? Just watch! It is also absurd that we will be safer and
moving in the right direction with a national ID card. Again, rather
than stop "mystery" illegal aliens from swooping through our country,
or profiling Muslim fundamentalists who have profiled themselves already
through a violent version of their religious beliefs, It's so much
easier to talk science, prey on our naive fear and suck our liberties
dry as we barely squeal on the cutting block. Wake up people.
