Airport scanners fail to detect weapons
Controversial body scanners that were removed in airports last year didn't exactly work as well as they were supposed to.
A new study found that while images clearly showed private parts, deadly weapons were able to go undetected.
Researchers from several universities were able to conceal guns and some explosives and make it past the Rapiscan Secure 1000.
The scanners were removed in 2013 due to privacy concerns and are now mainly used in courthouses and jails.
