Police Now Using Biometric Scanners for Iris Scans and Fingerprints

As technology marches ahead our society is trying to keep up.  Technology can be used for useful purposes and can be used for nefarious activities.  One instance is the use of biometrics in the law enforcement and security fields.  While using biometrics is useful in making our society safer it can be seen by many as an invasion of our privacy.  The Army is moving ahead in this biometric area in its registration by biometrics means of many members of the Iraq and Afghan population.  Read the concerns by one blogger on this topic.  See "Biometric Scanners Now Being Used by Cops", Afghan Notebook, December 20, 2011.
