UNION-TRIBUNE June 20, 2003 POWAY – The Poway Senior Volunteer Patrol and Poway Public Library will provide free fingerprinting of children on the fourth Saturday of each month. The new program will be from 1 to 3 p.m. starting June 28 outside the library. A parent or guardian must accompany each child. Parents receive a fingerprint card, on which they can add information such as the child's height, weight and birth date. A photo also can be included. The Sheriff's Department suggests parents keep a DNA sample from the child by either rubbing inside the child's mouth with a cotton swab or keeping a used bandage. Either should be stored in a sealed plastic bag. The department recommends fingerprinting children ages 11/2 to 18. For more information, call (858) 513-2855. No appointment is necessary.

For once I have no problem with this. The PARENTS keep the card, not the state. Simple and probably doesn't cost the taxpayer an arm and a leg.

Tactical_Jew, Your sig line says it all. Many things start out as a good, harmless idea. I can fingerprint my kids myself with an inkpad. If they are needed they could be dusted from anything in my house. They touch everything. Actually, I think we have some chocolate fingerprints on the wall already.[:)]

Here in San Antonio I did that at a local Mall. It was all done on cards with ink and I was able to keep them. I watched the whole process. They took a polaroid picture as well and stapled it to the fingerprint cards and handed all materials to me. I now have them in my safe.

This will NOT help you locate you children if they are kidnapped, which is the claim for these programs. The best it can do is help ID their dead bodies when they are found. So sad that parents' fears are being used to collect fingerprints and DNA. For now it will be voluntary. This is just a softening up process for later compulsary fingerprinting and DNA. Just like in the schools, get the kids conditioned to allow pat downs and being run through metal detectors, so that as adults they will think it is being done "for their own protection."

I did this type of thing several years ago with my daughter. The info. card is still sitting in my gunsafe. No this will not prevent anything bad from happening to her. But it will aid in positive identification if, Heaven forbid, it is needed.

"A Free Man" has solved this puzzle. I already have plenty of pictures and fingerprints on every window in the van.
