Remember innocent until proven guilty?
Remember the time when you had rights?
Remember the time when you had to be a suspect or criminal to have your fingerprints even taken?
Remember the time you had to provide consent for your fingerprints to be taken?
Remember the time when only a few were subject to enhanced checks, whilst the majority were not exploited?
Fingerprints have been confirmed to be a pseudoscience.
“Junk science in the courtrooms” has even been stated.
Convictions on fingerprints alone are rare these days,
And past convictions on the strength of fingerprints alone have been overturned.
Your face, your walk, your voice and other biometrics are now collected routinely, without your permission.
Your biometrics are no longer your “right”.
Your biometrics are no longer your privacy or personal property.
They are collected, stored, shared and accessible to unknown individuals and agencies (and non-government individuals), in countries with varying or inconsistent legal process or protection, without your permission.
You no longer have to be a criminal or suspect to be fingerprinted, facially scanned or recorded….just an international traveller.
