    NYPD Commences Use Of Iris Scans Of Suspects

    The NYPD says the images will be used to help avoid cases of mistaken identity. The process takes about five seconds. Every suspect will be scanned again using a handheld device shortly before they are arraigned to make sure the irises match.

    Police say the software, handheld device and cameras cost about $23,800 each, and 21 systems will be used around the city.

    The march of Big Brother continues. Lets give more power to thugs who are just as corrupt if not more with the LAPD and Chicago PD. Thanks Feudal Lord Bloomberg!

    This is just a case of wanting to spend their entire budget before the end of the year. "Boys and their Toys"

    I dont see it as a big deal, its a much more effective way to establish identity, which is something is done in a million other ways anything.

    I completely fail to see how this is 'Big Brother'-ish.

    I think 'someone' has issues with people of authority

    Yes... all police are government thugs... perhaps you should leave the country if you don't like it here.

    There's nothing wrong with fingerprinting, which is why I don't see a prolem with iris scanners. Its the same information, but its just impossible to give someone a partial iris.

    Why do you have a problem with replacing fingerprinting with eye scanning? Does merely being more sci-fi-ish make it scarier somehow? Why is one method of establishing your identity different than another?

    Instead of using personal attacks, maybe you could explain why this bothers you.
