CSI: Saipan

Chinese-Stabbing-Incident (CSI)

Did you read about this scary crime going on around the island, like this one Chinese non-resident worker who was biking home was suddenly stabbed at the back by someone inside a passing car.

Isn't that scary?

(noni) this is sad... instead of larger prisons... we need funded afterschool, weekend and summer programs. instead of near useless offices like women's affairs, carolinian affairs, indigenous affairs, youth congress, municipal council, and any number of cabinet offices... we need more funding for village sports facilities, cultural centers, the mariculture center, community centers, the library, museums and their programs. instead of 12 officers on the side of the road at 6pm on a payday friday looking for dui drivers at RUSH HOUR!, we need those funds to go to real community policing, camera surveillance and investigator training (and implementation). and we need courts that sentence violent criminals and thieves to major time.

...so i've ranted. sorry. but this kind of senseless cruel crime in a small community like this is disgusting. we have a police department that doesn't even take fingerprints at the scene of a robbery where fingerprints are obviously prevalent!

i'd have to agree with that fingerprint stuff, but they do try. can't blame them. i guess, i just watch too much CSI Las Vegas.

no...they don't try. fingerprinting has been used as an investigative tool for nearly 200 years now. as small as this place is, if everyone who got a license, registered for school, got a traffic ticket, opened a bank account, etc. was fingerprinted and the prints put in the database of one computer... WALAH! you'd be able to solve alot of crimes. and anyone walking around with gloves at night would look very suspicious.

i've had my house and car broken into about five times here. on every single occasion there were prints all over the glass windows, the car body, and my aluminum shelves. when i asked the officer if he was going to take fingerprints, he kind of laughed and said..."we don't do that".

give me a break...if you can spend oodles on new vehicles, and armies of officers standing by roadsides with radars or for seatbelt and dui checks...then you can spend a little money and some time on fingerprints. At the very least.

Police investigate something? What a joke. We have had a robbery of well over 10,000 cash. Eye witness to the get away car. Implements left behind with fingerprints and other evidence at the scene.

Police could not look up the license number and refused to do a hot pursuit. Weeks later found out who the vehicle belonged to. They went to the residence, saw the car, owner was not around.. and that was the absolute end to it.

Case was passed from person to person to person.. everytime I called they had no clue about what was going on or the status. The investigating officer was never around to speak on the phone. Return calls? You gotta be kidding.

Finally contacted the AG's office. A task force for crime's at the time.. went nowhere just like with the police. I'm afraid that if it weren't for DUI roadblocks they would have no arrests at all.

comeon now...they don't forget... they're not limited to just DUI roadblocks... they also tackle the dirty gritty stuff too... seatbelts and child restraints.

I'd tell you my comedic experiences with the keystone cops... but I'd probably be identified... so I'll just say that you don't come close to overexagerating in your description of how your case was handled... two of mine were unbelievably handled worse.

Of course the huge, wasteful prison, that has diverted and will continue to siphon off local funds that could have been used for all the exemplary social programs referred to in Comment #2 above, was imposed by none other than the omniscient federal government that seems hell-bent on taking over local immigration.

Fingerprinting all applicants for driver licenses might run into constitutional problems, though you could probably convince the legislature to pass such a law.

But is DPS even fingerprinting all the people it arrests?

Anonymous said...

even if it did currently fingerprint everyone arrested... do you think they've set up any kind of system for locating and matching fingerprints? the prints are probably scattered all over in various files.

my seventh grade daughter could set up a database on a computer for fingerprints...

the banks have always taken our prints and now it is clearly spelled out that background checks may be done on all individuals opening bank accounts (homeland security laws). so as long as there is a document signed noting you are aware of this... i don't think you would be breaking any constitutional laws. want foodstamps - get fingerprinted, need public health - get fingerprinted, need a license - get fingerprinted, need a court document - get fingerprinted, arrested - get fingerprinted, bank account - get fingerprinted, enrolling in a public school (over age 12) - get fingerprinted, filing taxes - get fingerprinted, new job - get fingerprinted.

Before you know it... you'll have a pretty good database.

There are certain professions in Florida that require you to get finger printed. Public School teachers and insurance salesmen are two of them, but there are more.

You already have to get a police clearance in order to work at PSS or to get a license. It would only be a logical step to require fingerprinting.

There may be some issues with privacy, but you would have a choice to not get fingerprinted. No fingerprints, no job, no license. Your choice.

I think fingerprinting all government employees would be a great idea.
