According to a police statement, the man was concerned that his privacy might be violated by the microchip that has been embedded in all German IDs since 2010. The man now faces either a fine or time in jail for the offense of illegally modifying official documents. According to German law, identification documents are state property.

I'm for a medical 'card' on which my essential would be stored (blood type, allergy, heart disease...) so I could be taken care effectively should I have an accident.
But a chipped ID card, hum...what's on this, to what extend, who can read it/pirate this, can I limit the info's like the one on my passport?

Just my opinion but i would be quite happy to have all my information put on my car licence . Details like name address etc but also a link of some sort to my fingerprints and DNA . It doesnt have to be electronic , perhaps a bar code . I have not done anything illegal , no need to fear having my details on record . To my way of thinking , if you want to rape , rob , murder etc you better be prepared to walk to the scene of the crime . I cannot for the life of me see the downside of that . Well unless you raped someone .
lest see now, what sort of information could go into a implanted chip which agree to never take out.
