Default More dung from NYC

I'm sure this won't bother many of the sheep in NYC.

The NYPD is developing a new way to seek people toting guns on the street by using radiation scanners that can detect those packing heat, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly announced Tuesday.
The technology — which works similar to infrared imaging — includes a mechanism that can detect a natural energy, known as terahertz radiation, that emits from a person’s body, Kelly said during his State of the NYPD address.
Because the radiation waves cannot travel through metal, a concealed gun can be detected from the image captured by the lense of the detector, Kelly said.
“This technology has shown a great deal of promise as a way of detecting weapons without a physical search,” Kelly said.
However, the technology — which has been undergoing testing by the NYPD and the U.S. Department of Defense for the past three years — can only be used at a distance of 3 to 4 feet, cops said.
“This can be done from a short range,” Kelly said. “We want a distance of at least 25 meters.”
Kelly mentioned the technology as part of the department’s continuing efforts to curb illegal guns off the street as he addressed the Police Foundation at the Regency Hotel on Park Ave.
He said cops hope to install the heat-seeking devices on police vehicles in the near future.
“We want to use new technology to protect the public and police officers from illegal guns,” he said.
But civil liberties lawyer Norman Siegel said he hopes the scanning devices will be able to distinguish between a gun and other harmless metal objects, such as an iPod.
Siegel said if the technology only picks up only fuzzy images of possible guns, it could lead cops to make unwarranted stops.
“It will make an already agressive policy of stop, question and frisk seem tame,” he said.

Cool

Naaah, we're law enforcement. We don't need probable cause.



Will the sheep in New York tolerate this?
