Sammy, you are loosing it.

Since 2008 EVERY subway station in Shanghai was a conveyor belt xray machine before the entrance gates, if you have a bag you are " requested " to place it on the belt, it goes through the machine and the image is viewed by a bored person looking at a tv.

It is not for people and there are no pat downs.
