  • A 21-year-old Virginia man who wrote an abbreviated version of the Fourth Amendment on his body and stripped to his shorts at an airport security screening area is demanding $250,000 in damages for being detained on a disorderly conduct charge.

    Aaron Tobey claims in a civil rights lawsuit (.pdf) that in December he was handcuffed and held for about 90 minutes by the Transportation Security Administration at the Richmond International Airport after he began removing his clothing to display on his chest a magic-marker protest of airport security measures.

    “Amendment 4: The right of the people to be secure against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated,” his chest and gut read.

    The University of Cincinnati student didn’t want to go through the advanced imaging technology X-ray machines that are cropping up at airports nationwide. Instead, when it was his turn to be screened, he was going to opt for an intrusive pat-down — and remove most of his clothing in the process.

    “He went there knowing he would not do the advanced imaging and do the pat-down instead,” his attorney, James Knicely, said in a telephone interview. “He was making it easy for them and in the process he wanted to communicate his objection for doing so.”

    Among other things, the federal lawsuit claims wrongful detention and a breach of the First Amendment and Fourth Amendment. “He was held there for 90 minutes, and handcuffed behind his back,” Knicely said.

    Tobey was on his way to Wisconsin for his grandmother’s funeral. Despite his detainment, he made his flight.

    According to the suit, while under interrogation on December 30, the authorities wanted to know “about his affiliation with, or knowledge of, any terrorist organizations, if he had been asked to do what he did by any third party, and what his intentions and goals were.”

    Two weeks later, Henrico County prosecutors dropped the misdemeanor charge.

    A software company is developing revolutionary software which provides the ability to identify people from photographs posted on the internet.

    Face.com has produced technology that can identify individuals on social networking sites and online galleries by comparing their image against a known picture of them.

    It means detailed profiles of individuals can be built up purely from online photographs and critics have said it could lead to exploitation by employers.

    AUSTIN (KXAN) – When Andrea Beleno gave birth to her son last year, she knew she’d do whatever it took to protect him.

    But she never dreamed she’d be taking on the State of Texas to safeguard her son’s most private information.

    And now, revelations are surfacing that not only did the state store that blood without parents’ knowledge – but they also actually bartered it for goods and services to for-profit companies, without the knowledge of parents or of state lawmakers.

    Beleno and several other Texas families sued the State Department of Health Services after they learned the agency had been storing and using newborn blood samples, or blood spots, that were leftover after testing for the Newborn Screening Program.

    Students in Manchester are having their thumbprints digitally transformed into electronic codes, which can then be recognised by a computer program.

    Under the scheme, pupils swipe a bar code inside the book they want borrow then press their thumb on to a scanner to authorise the loan. Books are returned in the same way.

    The scheme is being trialled on junior classes at Higher Lane Primary in Whitefield, Bury, Greater Manchester.

    Officials confirmed it is due to be extended to all pupils at the school, one of the areas largest primary schools, with 453 pupils aged four to 11.

    School authorities defended the scheme on Thursday, and moved to reassure parents that the voluntary system, is heavily encrypted or coded and that no images of fingerprints would be stored.

    Storage of newborns’ blood samples raises privacy concerns

    It’s a routine test conducted on newborns – a quick needle prick to the heel to test for a range of health disorders and diseases before an infant is discharged.

    But the newborn screening procedures, which exist across North America and most of the developed world, have run afoul of privacy advocates because the genetic material collected from infants when blood is drawn is routinely used for other purposes, chiefly medical research.

    Millions of infants’ blood samples – along with their names and birthdates – are stored on information cards in laboratories across Canada. What has riled civil libertarians and privacy advocates is that parents aren’t told that their babies’ genetic blueprint will be stored indefinitely, and perhaps used for research purposes.
