US Marshals store body scans


The U.S. Marshals Service has stored more than 35,000 full-body scans of people who entered a Florida courthouse, according to the watchdog group Electronic Privacy Information Center, which obtained a sample of images through the Freedom of Information Act. CNN reports that the Marshals Service images are “more ghost-like and far less detailed” than the backscatter images used by the Transportation Security Administration at airports.

But EPIC says the Marshals Service images shows so-called “digital strip search” images can be stored, despite government officials’ insistence that they do not keep them.
