Did you know that the FBI has plans to invade the privacy of Americans by compiling “biometric” databases?
It has been reported that data including digital images of faces, fingerprints and palm prints are already being collected, however, there are plans to also gather data including iris patterns, face shapes, scars, speech patterns and even gaits.
The technology is not new. This biometric data is already being used at the Pentagon and and the Defense Department. Also, the Department of Homeland Security reportedly already uses iris scans during some airport security checks.
