  • It's weird, I've never thought of fingerprinting as being "treated like a criminal." Maybe because the majority of fingerprinting I've been around was with children, for local safety programs, for identification in case of things like abduction. I dunno, I just don't think of fingerprinting as a big deal, I think of its purpose in a given context, and in this context, the purpose doesn't seem to be very offensive.

    That said, I don't know how useful the fingerprinting will be, but IANAFBIA.
    • The problem is not in fingerprinting per se, it's in what various public or private agencies are allowed to do with the fingerprint (or biometric / DNA) databases.
