Fingerprint your minorities

Posted in politics with tags , , , on 2008-07-05 by docsmith

Berlusconi is planning to fingerprint all Roma children, to help them, to „prevent phenomena such as begging“. This would be the first time he wanted to help them (well, in fact, to help anybody except himself), rather to get rid of them. Isn’t it too obvious? The fingerprint won’t change through their lifes, so it will be easy to track them down in the future, and of course it’s quiet handy to have their fingerprints, just in case their poverty leads them to crime when they’re grown up.

If one wants to help, they should start integrating people, not discriminate them.
