Now they want to check out everyone's junk...

For those folks who thought they could evade the intrusive nature of TSA scans by not flying, think again.

Forbes is reporting that "Newly uncovered documents show that as early as 2006, the Department of Homeland Security has been planning pilot programs to deploy mobile scanning units that can be set up at public events and in train stations, along with mobile x-ray vans capable of scanning pedestrians on city streets."

Looks like your "junk" is becoming a whole lot more public.
