We routinely refuse the scanners (Security always seem to get excited and yell "We have an OPT OUT") But a number of times they seem to want to test your resolve. The process is so chaotic that we were gestured to go through the scanner 3 times before we actually got the privilege of being groped. I have a sneaky suspicion that they are trying to train us to not "opt-out".

So until, the police and Internal Affairs get caught breaking the law, the law on the books isn't actually followed by the exact people who should know the law? Vigilante justice from within the police system is not a good culture to have brewing. Shouldn't anyone within the policing system that breaks the law or supports breaking the law be fired? Seems to be a conflict of interest to me.

This is great for the Android hardware ecosystem. Android hardware can then become the commodity computer of the future. The PC model of real hardware and software choices needs to move into the phone/tablet market as well. Otherwise we will simply be just the iJailed users of these devices.
