Driver's Licenses Spark Privacy Debate

"That plastic card, the one with the lousy photo that's jammed into your wallet or purse, isn't just a license to drive. It's the green light to buy a drink, the ticket to federal benefits, the must-have document to get aboard airplanes. Now it's also the flash point for an argument about how best to balance America's security needs with worries that personal privacy could be swept away."

"The federal intelligence overhaul that became law last month - while creating a new national intelligence director and beefing up border patrols - also aims to close loopholes for identity fraud that some of the Sept. 11 terrorists used to get aboard the jets they hijacked."

"Privacy advocates warn that the new federal standards for driver's licenses will effectively create a national ID card, centralizing information that can be misused - by letting the government track the whereabouts of innocent people, for instance. Government officials say they're just making the cards more secure, and that the worries are overblown."

"But the prosecution isn't buying it -- any of it."

"In a blistering 19-page rebuttal laced with adjectives like 'silly,' 'ridiculous' and 'astonishing,' lead Coconino County prosecutor Michael Lessler reduced the second-degree murder case against Harold Fish to one question: 'Why warn the dogs, but shoot the human being?' "

"Fish is the 57-year-old retired teacher who is claiming innocence by reasons of self-defense in the May 11 fatal shooting of Grant Kuenzli, a homeless man out walking three dogs near a trailhead in southeastern Coconino County."

"Bernard Kerik, President Bush's first choice to lead the Homeland Security Department, exercised stock options of $6.2 million he received from Taser International, which sold stun guns to the department - and seeks more business with it. It’s all about the money."

"Maybe the rush to get the newest technology on the streets is outpacing the ability of public officials to put in place the safeguards necessary to protect the public. Maybe it’s all about the money."

"The public, who is paying for these items, is being told that TASERs will be used as a safe, non-lethal alternative to guns. But in reality, they are being used in situations where police would never use lethal force." ...

"The Telegraph - without the CPS's access to prosecution files - found seven more examples in a search lasting less than an hour."

"The CPS, which says it prosecutes householders only 'in the most extreme circumstances', described its list as the result of an 'informal trawl' of its resources. Last week, however, Mr Macdonald used it as evidence that 'the law is on the side of householders'. It was published in the same week that Charles Clarke, the Home Secretary, ruled out an amendment in the law to allow householders to use more force to protect their homes and families against intruders. Details of the 11 cases were released to reassure people that police action was taken only rarely." ...

U.S. Rep. Chris Shays, R-4, wants to know if ammunition for a high-powered handgun is included in a federal ban on armor-piercing bullets, and if not, why.

In a letter to the director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Devices, Shays said he is "very concerned" about the ammunition for Herstal FN 5.7 handgun.

Trumbull police confiscated the loaded handgun during a drunken driving arrest last October.

In unscientific tests conducted by the department, the bullets went through the front of a bulletproof vest and lodged in its back panel.
