Oklahoma Kiddies Getting Naked for the Cause

**UPDATE BELOW**

You may be aware of the continuing controversy over the NAKED BODY SCANNERS being installed in airports nationwide.

‘The Naked Truth about TSA’s Naked Body Scanners’

Among the issues raising the hackles of the public are;

  • DHS repeatedly and provably lieing about the capabilities of the devic es to store and transmit images.
  • Privacy concerns surrounding the nude images of passengers produced by these devices.
  • Health and safety of the devices

You might not be aware of lawsuits over using prisoners and visitors to correction facilities undergoing forced submission to the body scanners;

Prisoners forced to submit to radiation experiments for private foreign companies

Regulations at 28 CFR §§ 512.11 and 512.12 prohibit the government from using inmates for this type of experimentation and require them to give both the inmates and the public notice of their intent to use inmates as test subjects as well as all of the possible effects related to being subjected to any such experimentation – and then only on a voluntary basis. See also Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. § 551(4) and 5 U.S.C. § 553(b)-(d).

Despite the clearance of some CT scanners (Rapiscan), the FDA’s website shows that no data has ever been presented to the agency as to the safety of these devices and states that it has never approved these devices as being safe because “some Food and Drug Administration officials were worried that full-body CT screening scans (Rapiscans) ‘may be exposing thousands of Americans to unnecessary and potentially dangerous radiation’ and that CT scans of the chest delivered 100 times the radiation of a conventional chest x-ray … between .2 to 2 rads of radiation during a single scan.” See, e.g., Virtual Physical Ctr-Rockville, LLC v. Philips Med. Sys., 478 F.Supp.2d 840, 842-43(D. Md. 2007) and “FDA Raises Body Safety Issue” by Marlene Cimons in the Los Angeles Times, June 5, 2001.

What I am almost positive that you are not aware of is that in 2001 this type of technology and others was tested on 8th graders in Oklahoma Public Schools.

Quantum Magnetics and Owasso OK — School District Sign Cooperative Agreement to Improve School Security

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–June 6, 2001

Quantum Magnetics, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of InVision Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: INVN), and Owasso (Oklahoma) Public Schools signed an agreement, joining in a cooperative effort to improve school security and remove the threat of weapons on school grounds. The agreement calls for the two parties to cooperate in acquiring and analyzing concealed weapons detection data and developing security system deployment strategies.

. . . In 2000, Quantum engineered its passive weapons detection sensors into a commercial product. Unlike metal detectors, this technology combines high detection probability with an image showing the precise location of the weapon. In addition, it can be configured to scan — inconspicuously — large numbers of people at entrances of public buildings such as schools and courthouses.

Hearing about the technology’s promise earlier this year, Mr. Dale Johnson, superintendent of the Owasso School District, contacted Quantum Magnetics to inquire into the status of the research.

. . .Hearing about the technology’s promise earlier this year, Mr. Dale Johnson, superintendent of the Owasso School District, contacted Quantum Magnetics to inquire into the status of the research. In response, Quantum Magnetics’ President and CEO, Dr. Lowell Burnett, visited Owasso to discuss the company’s plans for testing the company’s sensors in a school environment. The first of a series of tests were recently completed at the Eighth Grade Center in Owasso, Oklahoma, and Quantum’s scientists and engineers are currently analyzing the data at their research facility in San Diego.

. . .Quantum develops and commercializes promising technologies such as quadrupole resonance (QR), magnetic resonance (MR), low-cost magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and magnetic tensor gradiometry (MTG).

What the heck does quadrupole resonance  do?

Quadrupole resonance, according to Quantum Magnetics “detects explosive concealed under and individual’s clothing”

I don’t know if they used it to scan the kids or not but I am going to try and find out just exactly what they were testing and researching in Owasso schools.

There will be MUCH more to come on this issue.  In the meantime, Oklahoma parents should be contacting their school districts and asking some questions.

Said he received my records request.

Recieved a message from Superintendent Ogilvie today stating that he received my records request but that there  are no records on file at his location.  He stated that he has no awareness of this agreement nor does former Superintendent Johnson.

“No records exist” according to Dr. Ogilvie.

The headline of the article that caught my attention in the first place is;

Quantum Magnetics and Owasso — OK — School District Sign Cooperative Agreement to Improve School Security.

The article goes on to say;

Quantum Magnetics, Inc. . . and Owasso (Oklahoma) Public Schools signed an agreement, joining in a cooperative effort to improve school security and remove the threat of weapons on school grounds

Hearing about the technology’s promise earlier this year, Mr. Dale Johnson, superintendent of the Owasso School District, contacted Quantum Magnetics to inquire into the status of the research.
