State Police Now Fingerprinting Every Texan

HOUSTON – The Texas Department of Public Safety has quietly embarked on a project to take the fingerprints of every Texan old enough to drive over the next 12 years, and add them to a statewide criminal history database.

Not only has the department made that momentous decision on its own, it doesn’t even have clear legal authority to do so. http://personalliberty.com/state-police-...ery-texan/

Coming soon to other states. You want the privilege of driving a car, you will submit fingerprints and DNA samples. They've already started the process with the biometric facial identity program.

Repo companies are installing ALPRs to record every license plate they see everywhere so they can use it to do mining later on to figure out your driving patterns when you stop paying your car loan.

Obvi the data is of great interest to people not in the repo biz.

This is interesting, and I hadn't heard about this. I'm going to have to look into this because I hadn't heard about this I've been traveling for work for the past month straight, and so I've been a bit out of place and not reading as much as I normally do, thanks for the heads up. I will say that almost everybody I know has a driver's license and already has all that on file. Even kids that didn't have cars would get their license at 16 and keep it as their ID. Pretty much everybody I know has their driver's license. I didn't realize that you could get other "ID" that was legally accepted until maybe 6 or 7 years ago, that's how common driver's licenses are here. I think part of it could be related to how bad some place's public transportation is, or how spread out everything is, but almost everyone is already a part of that database if they're old enough to drive. I'm sure there are some exceptions, especially in larger cities, though.
