Green Bay - Police Begin Fingerprinting on Traffic Stops
http://www.wbay.com/Global/story.asp?s=2776926

"If you're caught speeding or playing your music too loud, or other crimes for which you might receive a citation, Green Bay police officers will ask for your drivers license and your finger. You'll be fingerprinted right there on the spot. The fingerprint appears right next to the amount of the fine.

Police say it's meant to protect you -- in case the person they're citing isn't who they claim to be."

***************
Remember, It's for your own good.

2. I don't like that at all
"Police stress that the prints are just to make sure you are who you claim to be and do not go into any kind of database; they simply stay on the ticket for future reference if the identity is challenged."

I wonder how they would work that in Iowa... it's all electronic now with laptops in the patrol cars.

8. We're heading south this spring, I was threatened by a Green Bay
Police officer last September, reported him to Internal Affairs Department-still waiting to get follow-up report.
Brown County is corrupt as DC now.

5. Unconstitutional--presumes guilt

You're not under arrest, and technically, you're not convicted of the violation until you either pay the ticket in time, or are unsuccessful in challenging it in court. And unless the print is returned to you or destroyed once the citation is settled up, it IS in a database.
