License And Registration Please. And Your Finger

Police Begin Fingerprinting on Traffic Stops

"If you're ticketed by Green Bay police, you'll get more than a fine. You'll get fingerprinted, too. It's a new way police are cracking down on crime.
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."

It seems according to the story there might somewhere be a rash of phony IDs and so "it's meant to protect you", a stupidly phony reason. Since this report states that the cop doesn't take a copy the only reason for this appears to be another way to get us used to a total police state, where we have zero privacy and we worry that everything we do is recorded and scrutinized.
