JUST BEAT IT! Govt lauds crime-solving technology?

They told him don't you ever come around here. Don't wanna see your face, you better disappear. The fire's in their eyes and their words are really clear. So beat it!

The New South Wales Government says advances in crime solving technology are helping the progress of hundreds of police investigations.

But is this technology a way for the government to identify you as a potential criminal in case you get in the way or because you're an agitator?

Or merely because you're in the wrong place at the right time?

You better run, you better do what you can. Don't wanna see no blood, don't be a macho man. You wanna be tough, better do what you can. So beat it.

In order to profile you (the citizen) today in NSW, they need to find out where you live and take a picture.

Then they'll speak to your old schoolteacher and find out what your weakest points were as a student.

Then they'll see if there is any crime in your area that needs solving.

If you can't prove where you were when the crime was committed then you'll have to prove you weren't at the crime scene.

They take DNA and match it or they already have your profile DNA and match it. Now you have to prove it doesn't match the crime scene.

Then if you're ugly and they don't like you with all circumstantial evidence they have, [or even flawed circumstantial evidence,] as well as your new digital visual imagery photograph of your face (that's ugly) [especially if they rotate it side-ways] and you look like a potential criminal, then...

Then they bring on the informer (dog).

The dog they pay to say it was you!

He'll be scratching in the box waiting for his next hit, the dividend for giving you no alibi.

You have to show them that you're really not scared. You're playin' with your life, this ain't no truth or dare. They'll kick you, then they beat you, Then they'll tell you it's fair. So beat it!

Why they need to solve this crime is because it means a lot to some person or the State to solve the crime.

Then it was you wasn't it? Prove it wasn't you? How?

Legal Aid.

The Police Minister John Watkins says 'biometric' technologies including "livescan" and "phototrac" are being rolled out to police stations across the state.

"Livescan fingerprinting technology is already throughout much of the state," he said.

"It's been joined with phototrac - new digital visual imagery to take photographs of faces of potential criminals and those people who are arrested."

They're out to get you, better leave while you can. Don't wanna be a boy, you wanna be a man. You wanna stay alive, better do what you can. So beat it!

Corrupt police planting DNA evidence at crime scenes

Others have raised concerns about corrupt police planting DNA evidence at crime scenes.

Military lawyers await probe on DNA tampering

UGLY: What if you're just born plain ugly and you look like a potential criminal? Then they hit you with the 'Ugly Stick'. I thought that was for fishing?


DNA testing causes debate in murder case
"Once police have some part of you like DNA, they will look further to profile you whether you're guilty or not. If they find some form of circumstantial evidence [or even flawed circumstantial evidence] to attach to your DNA they will plant the rest of the evidence on you like you had always owned it and you will be convicted and sent to jail guilty or not," he said.

Retrospective Laws: Mesmerised like a chook syndrome
What is it? This chook syndrome. Perhaps it is when we allow 800-year-old rule of law to diminish for a dictator like Bob Carr.

The Australian Law Reform Commission had recommended that the Innocence Panel be independent and have the power to investigate alleged miscarriages of justice.

Murder charge first for DNA data bank link, but not the same as solving the murder Mass DNA testing of prisoners has [allegedly] led to the first NSW case of a person being charged with a previously unsolved murder as a result of a controversial gene-matching data bank.

Prisoners can prove innocence for $20?
Les Kennedy Daily Telegraph reported today that" Prisoners who believe that DNA will prove they were wrongly convicted will have the chance to prove their innocence for a mere $20 administration fee. The move comes 20 months after NSW inmates were asked to provide DNA for comparison with a databank of DNA from unsolved crime scenes for possible convictions.
