The F.B.I.’s Billion Dollar Crime Database Video Clip

Here is a video from CNN’s report on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s plans for a billion dollar expansion of their criminal records database to make it “bigger, better and faster”.

The FBI’s criminal records database currently contains 55 million records on terrorists, criminals and other people. The expanded criminal database will add people’s biometric information like iris patterns and facial recognition records – personal physical information that is being called “Next Generation Identification”.

Privacy experts worry that the criminal database is going from a criminal tracking and identification program to including large numbers or ordinary citizens.
