    We regularly hear stories about generals or politicians leaving their cases in the back of taxis etc. We have also seen recently how cyber warfare is increasing, The maffia are rich and powerful enough to employ top hackers and a biometric database would be a gift to organised crime with criminals wanting to steal ID. Enemy states can steal ID for the purpose of spying. What about cooked cops? It is possible to have smart ID cards which there is a real need for can be created with cheaper existing and secure technology like the chip and pin system used on most european credit cards we don't though need an expensive and controversial biometric system. Biometric passports make things quicker at airports but does extra speed at the airport justify the billions that will need to be spent to develop the biometric passport and ID card and the extra risk from crime because the rewards can be very high.
