Talk:Identix Inc.

From SourceWatch
Jump to navigation Jump to search
This website "SourceWatch" definitely lives up to its name when it comes to the listed information concerning Identix Inc. SourceWatch has no clue what they are talking about. The articles they list are total propaganda. The lawsuit claiming Identix has falsely identified individuals by mixed up fingerprint data is the most ridiculous of all. Identix's equipment is not involved in the matching and search capabilities of fingerprint systems. Identix does not search databases and identify individuals by their fingerprints. Identix's equipment only CAPTURES the fingerprint image at the time of arrest. The local AFIS and FBI-IAFIS systems do the matching of prints and the assignment of codes, not Identix. This lawsuit will not stand. It is baseless.
The UK passport system pilot is working quite well, with no problems, save the ignorant liberal media comments. The information that is being bantered about in the British liberal news rags is of no consequence. You must consider the source before giving this blatant disinformation any credibility.

As these comments are unreferenced, and contain a certain amount of rhetoric, I've moved them here. I'm not saying that Smith's comments about the merits of the lawsuit are necessarily wrong, but they need to be backed up by references. --Neoconned 19:43, 2 Dec 2004 (EST)
