Thanks to our Kirtland lobbyist for the “heads up” on this disturbing article about technology destroying our freedoms.
Look for this technology to be slowly introduced into all of our society, all with the intent of “ensuring our safety”. When you consider the current facial recognition software, digital fingerprints, a new driver’s license with a mountain of personal data allowing you to travel; we are just years away from a totalitarian government mandating that everyone have “chips” implanted in your hand. Our freedoms and liberties are definitely under attack, and the citizens, for the most part, are clueless.
Huxley’s “Brave New World” is facing our grandchildren – as we have said before, evil works in incremental steps.
The Richland County Sheriff’s Office announced today the implementation of an inexpensive and innovative iris biometric identification technology to identify offenders.
The iris biometric identification system is a faster and more accurate way to identify both local and national offenders. The technology will improve the public and staff by quickly (in approximately 8 seconds) and accurately confirming the identity of previously entered offenders.
The iris biometric technology takes a digital picture of the iris and compares it against a database of individuals who have been previously arrested in Richland County and in other participating law enforcement agencies across the nation.
The whole system costs less than 9 thousand dollars, which makes it the least expensive option according to Mullin.
The national database currently stores 1.4 million iris images and is projected to increase exponentially in the next few years.
