Many months ago I wrote about the brave new world offered to us freedom loving Americans that RFID promised. The FBI has gone beyond that and will take us forward into a braver new 21st Century. The rule of law and law enforcement has never had such a bright future. America should be proud, enthusiastic and more than ready to move into the new century, safe and free. Remember 9/11?
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.
Awesome. Let’s bring the libtards along, kicking and screaming, into a new improved beacon of freedom and security.
But it’s an issue that raises major privacy concerns — what one civil liberties expert says should concern all Americans.
Boo hoo hoo. If you’ve got something to hide. Like criminal activity. Why do so called “civil liberties” activists like the anti-American ACLU always seek to protect terrorists, drug dealers and other lawbreakers?
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.”
Who could disagree with that? Bring on the libtards:
But it’s unnerving to privacy experts.
Yeah, protecting the borders, keeping the terrorists out, protecting our citizens and neighbors and children and having good jobs in a safe country is “unnerving.” What a bunch of bedwetters.
“It’s the beginning of the surveillance society where you can be tracked anywhere, any time and all your movements, and eventually all your activities will be tracked and noted and correlated,” said Barry Steinhardt, director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Technology and Liberty Project.
This same old garbage is trotted out whenever law enforcement attempts to get the upper hand on criminals and terrorists. It’s the same old song and dance. Hey ACLU, if you’ve got nothing to hide, you’ve got nothing to fear. The fact that the ACLU was founded by anarchists and communists determined to tear America into shreds and make it a Marxist utopia isn’t so bad, is it? Why hide that irrefutable fact? Stand up for your beliefs, proudly!
The FBI has also started collecting mug shots and pictures of scars and tattoos. These images are being stored for now as the technology is fine-tuned. All of the FBI’s biometric data is stored on computers 30-feet underground in the Clarksburg facility.
First of all, anyone who has a tattoo is obviously guilty of something. So I think it is blatantly obvious that these folks need trackable ankle bracelets and RFID implants. Perhaps it should be a law that you get an RFID implant or have it verified that you have one to get a tattoo or a facial piercing. But I’m just brainstorming here.
In addition, the FBI could soon start comparing people’s eyes — specifically the iris, or the colored part of an eye — as part of its new biometrics program called Next Generation Identification.
Everyone liked Star Trek: The Next Generation, right? So why not Next Generation Identification? It sounds so futuristic and cool. Sign all our libtard commenters up! I bet most of them are trekkies and criminals anyway!
The FBI plans a so-called “rap-back” service in which an employer could ask the FBI to keep the prints for an employee on file and let the employer know if the person ever has a brush with the law. The FBI says it will first have to clear hurdles with state privacy laws, and people would have to sign waivers allowing their information to be kept.
You leftists love rap (or hop hop) too, right? So prepare for the “rap-back.” It’s in America’s best interests. And if we can protect you from yourselves, it’s a win-win situation. G-d bless useful technology. G-d made us all unique, so he would smile on this new technology that celebrates it. So should us all.
