CLARKSBURG, West Virginia (CNN) -- The FBI is gearing up to create a massive computer database of people's physical characteristics, all part of an effort the bureau says to better identify criminals and terrorists.

I've been telling everyone for a year now that those little cameras at every intersection are not just for red light runners and traffic control.


1984 has arrived. The real question is what and how are we the people going to deal with this?

I didn't see this a month ago. But it is yet another example of the incremental chipping away of our rights as Americans.

First they'll use this surveillance to keep you in fear, pointing out all the "threats" to "our way of life", then they'll use that fear to get you to submit to the violations of your rights under the guise of protecting you.

Every good dictator has known that for centuries. Feed the people on a diet of fear and bread.

And crime-- that is the perfect knife to use to whittle away your rights. Crime? Identity theft? Kiddie porn on the Internet. Who would object to policing that? That is their foot in the door. Once they get that inch, they will take miles.

thanks for the post.
ive been saying for a while now that the best way to control a mass of people is through fear. the government will get you scared, then come along to save the day, making false promises to gain your trust. we as a people have to be smart, deny ignorance, right?

I think they do not say anything, because it is really too late. Also alot when they had a chance to change things, would of laughed at people like bill cooper and phil schneider, and especially waco.

That saying, "An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice anywhere". Sums up our world, and the sheep, just loe it when it happens to someone else, not knowing, if they let it hapen to someone else, they are just laughing at themselves, because sooner or later the system will come after them and there loved ones.

The word apathy is good word i think too describe the situation.

It just makes me smile, hearing people saying voting for obama will change anything, how do they even come up with anything like that. He is just as bad as the rest. For any hillary haters out there, his voting record on things is virtually the same as obamas, that says it all. We just live in a world today, with so many people not being able to critically analyse anything.

So i would not bother expecting too many responses to this thread, as people never care, unless its happening to them, and in there face.

Theres making it safe then their is an 'obsessive compulsive' disorder.


And people wondered why more and more police officers were being hired because of their military background.


The fear of freedom is scary to some.

SHOOT FIRST ASK QUESTIONS LATER.

If I was the government and I had a Society starting a revolt around me I would have a back up plan perhaps Jailed prisioners to take back my country through fear.

OR better yet release the Prisioners amongst common society to keep it in place.


Why because of the FEAR PROGRAMMING.

do you think a revolt would help us? would us actually fighting to make a difference make a difference at all?

Well it seems that we have nation full of terrorist so instead of filtering the real terrorist from the patriots we all be treated as terrorist.


We need to be tag, scan and bar coded.

the real terrorists are the FBI. a terrorist is, essentially, a person who uses fear to get what they want.

If you want to go by that tactic, you are using fear to get your point across, making you a terrorist.

They are laughing when asked about this. The response is cynical doubletalk.

But Lawrence Hornak, the co-director of the research center at West Virginia University, said it could actually enhance people's privacy.

"It allows you to project your identity as being you," said Hornak. "And it allows people to avoid identity theft, things of that nature."


That isn't enhanced privacy. Allowing you to project your identity as being you. What a crock. That doesn't even answer the question he just uses a few words from the question and turns it around to sound like he answered it. It's a slap in the face.

People should realize at this point that whenever the gubmint introduces something and shows it's intended purpose you should be smart enough to see a little further down the road and decipher it's real intended use. On the front this is about criminals on the real it's about population control.
