Ban the use of backscatter X ray intrusive surveillance

Please stop the abuse of power from the NCA. They are watching everything you are doing using backscatter X ray technology which allows them to see through walls. Further details are reported here:

The level of detail it provides them with is the equivalent of a group of people coming to your house and taking all your clothes off as seen in the petition photo.

There is a reason this technology was taken out of all the airports. It's a massive violation of human rights and privacy:

What's worse, the guidelines set out under RIPA state it must be necessary and proportionate and that they must have a warrant before it can be used. Over the last 7 months, they have kept me under 24 hour a day intrusive surveillance and despite complaints made to the IPT tribunal, they continue to harass me without the use of a warrant and I am powerless to stop it.

They have no regard for the law themselves, have not followed the government guidelines set out under RIPA and the information they are gathering, which is protected under the data protection act, is being divulged to people outside of the organisation. They show no regard for the physical and mental well being of the public.

We are told that this technology and these agencies are there to protect us from terrorists. That's just an excuse as the last 6 months have proven, they use it whenever they feel like it, for no reason at all, none of it authorised.

We are also told in the press that the Manchester bomber was known to agencies but there are inadequate resources and funds to monitor the 23,000 suspected terrorists:

The NCA funding of half a billion a year would be far better spent on the massively underfunded NHS:

 Furthermore, this technology has links to cancer due to ionizing radiation it emits, the longer the exposure, the higher the risk, as detailed here:

Please sign the petition and ban the use of this technology. There are inadequate safeguards put in place to protect our civil liberties, they are actively abusing their power and cannot be trusted. In addition, they are putting all our lives in danger by giving us cancer and are wasting valuable tax payers money.
