The fine folks of the NYPD have taken delivery of a portable scanner, allowing them to scan pedestrians for hidden objects from a distance. No need for those messy, not-so-politically-correct "stop & frisks." We'll just remotely strip search everybody!
Ahhh, yes. I love the smell of freedom in the morning.
(from the picture of NYPD's unit in the above link, it looks different from the QinetiQ North America's SPO-7 "standoff passive object detection system" that's been in use since ~2008 by the TSA)
