What difference does it make if the FBI has your identifying features stored in a database? It seems its more of a benefit than a detriment. Can someone explain why it is bad?
When they start matching DNA to identifying features, it will make it easier for them to catch a criminal. Even building an image from DNA evidence might be possible in the future.

1) Simply because many people don't wan't to have cameras at unkown locations recording data with software like this. Privacy is a right guaranteed by the Constitution and breaches of it are just one more step to full blown Orwellian society (as if we aren't there already). Do the feds really need to know every time you walk into a grocery store or go out for a night on the town?
2)The very plausible likleyhood that it will be used without your knowledge or consent. Meaning the people with this technology are cyber voyers, watching you from the shadows while you go about your business thinking everything is completely normal. Every time you go somewhere that data gets logged into your secure file until they decide they need it for some reason.
3) The "If you're doing nothing wrong, you have nothing to hide" addage is complete BS. If we're doing nothing wrong, the feds have no damn reason to track us.
