Digitized prints can point finger at innocent

This story is yet another good example of people putting their trust in the abstraction that is technology and its ability to do their work for them rather than using technology to implement common sense decisions. No matter how good or innovative, no technological solution is full proof. A cynical person might say that it's yet another attempt to make people feel that all the heightened security has some heft to it, when in fact it doesn't, when in fact it only increases the chances of innocent people being harassed or imprisoned
