Driver's License Emerges as Crime-Fighting Tool

Submitted by:
Very scary! From the website listed below: "Last year they tried an experiment, for sport. Using computerized biometric technology, they ran a mug shot from the Web site of "America's Most Wanted," the Fox Network television show, against the state's database of nine million digital driver's license photographs. The computer found a match. A man who looked very much like Robert Howell, the fugitive in the mug shot, had a Massachusetts driver's license under another name. Mr. Howell was wanted in Massachusetts on rape charges."

JJ Luna Responds:

Yes, privacy advocates will howl, but if Howell was indeed guilty of rape, I'm happy to hear they caught him.
