Police State Expands its Powers

Picture of NIST Director Dr Copan

What does combined explosive exploitation cells, improvised explosive devices (IEDs), Edgewood Chemical Biological Center, scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), X-ray microscopy, left of boom, Raman spectroscopy, nanofabricated coaxial multilayer probes & the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have in common? The commonality is a Chemical Fingerprint Imaging System that’ll help warfighters identify planters of IEDs in the theater of war.

This new prototype system will analyze micro particles within fingerprints ultimately identifying the owner of the residual DNA particles and the fingerprints. In the theater of war fingerprints aren’t enough to detain suspected IED planters but with this new technology even days after the event this prototype system will identify perpetrators giving field personal the ability to detain suspects based on analyzed data.

Law enforcement is looking forward to using this technology. The system is small, interfaces with the FBIs Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System adding a second layer to the systems accuracy once a suspect’s identification has been made. System results are admissible in U.S. Courts introducing a new danger and loss of rights to millions if this technology is abused. Early indicators show abuse is likely as the next generation system is scheduled for delivery to the U.S. Criminal Investigation Laboratory within 24 months.

In an alleged interview Under Secretary of Commerce for Standards and Technology and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Director Dr. Copan told reporters “with this new system we’ll be able to nail the innocent to the wall”. When a reporter interrupted saying you mean the guilty? In a critical tone Dr. Copan said “no one is innocent, only those that can afford legal representation are innocent, the rest well, they’ll go to jail, that’s where the low life’s and poor belong, sure they’ll be abused by bubba but that’s their own bad luck. In the long run more prisons are good, because we have to feed the prison industrial complex, this new tool will ensure prison quotas are adhered to”.
