Police in the U.K. are in talks with the FBI about establishing an international biometric database for tracking down the world's most wanted criminals and terrorists.

Anyone else think this could help lay the foundation for a more centralized international tracking system? I mean, for non criminals as well...?
This would be ideal for immigrants coming into America as well as the illegals. Any caught would be fingerprinted and have an iris scan. When they need to apply for American privileges, they have to submit an iris scan. Comes up they are illegal, give em the boot.
The announcement of the database proposals follows the news earlier this week that the U.K. has completed a system to check the fingerprints of every visa applicant.

But hey, since you seem to like the idea so much. How about we call the govt. and try to set up so that you have 3 FBI agents following you around everywhere you go, monitor everything you do. Need to go tinkle? better tell the agent you're going to the bathroom because apparently you've not "grown up" enough to go by yourself. I know, everytime you go to the library or surf the net, have those FBI agents looking over your shoulder to make sure you don't visit any "suspicious" websites. Sound like fun?
