Italy may demand all its citizens be fingerprinted, a move aimed at defusing widespread criticism of government plans to force Roma people and their children to provide fingerprints as what Italy says a way of tackling criminality.
A parliamentary committee agreed on Wednesday that from 2010 all identity cards, which Italians already have to carry, should include the fingerprints of the bearer. The measure still has to pass through parliament.

Nope, i guess they wanna fingerprint everyone, immigrants too.
So, first they say they'll fingerprint the roma immigrants, as a solution to the high crime rates among the roma population. Then comes the reaction, the European Parliament, public oppinion and many organisations condamn this measure. And what's the solution? Let's fingerprint everybody, so it won't be discriminatory anymore!
Makes me wonder if they didn't plan this from the beginning.
