“If something is obstructing the flow of that radiation, for example a weapon, the device will highlight that object,” Kelly said.

A video image aired at a Police Foundation breakfast Wednesday showed an officer, clad in a New York Jets jersey and jeans, with the shape of a hidden gun clearly visible under his clothing when viewed through the device.

2. Yay!!!

Stop and Frisk get a new face.

Sorry, but that cell phone, inhaler, car keys, wallet, anything but the color of your skin... looks like a gun... Let me toss out your 4th amendment rights and go ahead and search you and question you on the validity of why you are walking the streets in the most populous city in the United States.

5. Well ...

 

... anyone who might carry a gun would carry an unapproved book or subversive literature. You can never be too careful when it comes to security.
