UK: ‘Spot’ teams to spy on passengers

ELITE teams of security officers are to be trained to monitor passenger behaviour at airports in a new attempt to combat terrorism.






The “behaviour detection squads” will patrol terminals to monitor the gestures, conversations and facial expressions of passengers. One of their aims will be to spot those who may be concealing fear or anxiety.

Looking for fear and anxiety at an airport eh ? I wonder how many sufferers of aviophobia will be arrested as suspected terrorists.
