The United Nations, whose record on “Peace-keeping” is dismal at best, wants a world database of DNA and fingerprint records to improve Interpol. Of course, about the only countries that will participate are the ones whose citizens are most likely to be a danger to them. You know, Canada, U.K. and, of course, the United States.
If our legislators approve, this would put them far beyond the boundaries of the Fourth Amendment into the realm of traitors. They are already violating the Fourth Amendment by keeping databases of DNA and fingerprints on non-convicted citizens of the United States. You might recall that the Fourth Amendment reads:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
You are violated when the government takes any part of your anatomy to keep on file. And, by the way, your effects includes everything else that you own. Including your hard drives. Of course anything you throw away is fair game (California v. Greenwood, 486 U.S. 35 (1988))
Apparently, to placate Americans, Ronald K. Noble has been “re-elected” as the Secretary General of Interpol. Noble, who is known as “The Enforcer,” has been instrumental in working with Chinese authorities to provide policing in the Communist country for major national events. However, his most notorious role was in ordering and then, in his position as Undersecretary for Enforcement of the United States Department of the Treasury, whitewashing the actions of the BATF following the federal government’s murderous siege on the Branch Davidian compound at Waco which killed 76 people including more than 20 children and two pregnant women in April 1993.
PARIS—Interpol and the United Nations are poised to become partners in fighting crime by jointly grooming a global police force that would be deployed as peacekeepers among rogue nations riven by war and organized crime, officials from both organizations say.
On Monday, justice and foreign ministers from more than 60 countries, including the United States and China, are gathering in Singapore for a meeting hosted by the two international organizations.
It is the first step toward creating what Interpol calls a “global policing doctrine” that would enable Interpol and the United Nations to improve the skills of police peacekeepers, largely by sharing a secure communications network and a vast electronic trove of criminal information, including DNA records, fingerprints, photographs and fugitive notices.
“We have a visionary model,” said Ronald K. Noble, secretary general of Interpol and the first American to head the international police organization, which is based in Lyon. More than 187 member nations finance the organization.
