Privacy, Security, Encryption If you're modest, think twice before having sex in your van, truck, or RV. Law enforcement uses roving vans with backscatter X-ray technology to peer inside vehicles (the same technology used in airport body scanners). In the Land of the Free, authorities don't request search warrants. More at Forbes here and here. What, you don't want an X-ray bath?

Mr. Fosdisk's story is just another fine example of "crap" journalism and scare tactics to grab attention. His link to one of the Forbe's articles is dated Sept. 2010! The DHS has been using this technology at US ports of entry for years now, well prior to 2010 or December 2011. And they have no intention of roving America's streets with this technology as his headline so mistakenly suggests. We actually have laws against such things here in the US which he so conveniently decided to leave out of his article.
