FBI wants palm prints, eye scans and tattoo mapping
CLARKSBURG, West Virginia (CNN) -- The FBI is gearing up to create a massive computer database of people's physical characteristics, all part of an effort the bureau says to better identify criminals and terrorists.
The FBI wants to use eye scans, combined with other data, to help identify suspects.
But it's an issue that raises major privacy concerns -- what one civil liberties expert says should concern all Americans.
The bureau is expected to announce in coming days the awarding of a $1 billion, 10-year contract to help create the database that will compile an array of biometric information -- from palm prints to eye scans.
Kimberly Del Greco, the FBI's Biometric Services section chief, said adding to the database is "important to protect the borders to keep the terrorists out, protect our citizens, our neighbors, our children so they can have good jobs, and have a safe country to live in."
LOL, Shall we fuck ourselves before they do it for us?
And what the hell is that Kimberly girl talking about? That's the dumbest excuse ever. "Keep the terrorists out", like if there are terrorists all mounted up on the borders waiting for a breach... and like if a biometric database does actually provide people with better jobs.
