ok, made it back home, in one safe piece.
to straighten a few things out, i took this flight due to money and time issues, else i would have booked through hongkong or something like that.
yes, i understand it is security, but how far can or are you willing to take it. i would consent to them having a record while i was in the country,
but would prefer them destroyed after i left, but whats the chances of that, now im "tagged". heres a question though, do they require this on the
american/canadian border as we cross over? i dont think so, and thats why i somewhat object.
the entire process was not friendly or rude, it was professional and straightforward, ie; finger, finger, face, done. plus you get all the other usual
questions at customs like intent of stay and etc. i thought about refusing to have it doen, but then decided that i didnt want to start a scene or
issue out of it all, i mean i have nothing to hide. but then maybe i should have atleast tried.
i had no idea that this was a new procedure, so was pretty much helpless in having a say on the matter, however, that could be contributed to myself
not doing the research on the update policies.
so over all i dont really care, but am still kinda pissed off that they have my prints and headshot.
