Free child fingerprinting

Friday, February 20, 2009

The Free Masons and members of the sheriff's department will be providing free child identification kits through the child identification program (CHIPs) program ran by the Indiana Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons at the Brazil National Guard Armory during the Clay County Business Showcase from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., Saturday.

Let's not make something out of it that it's not! This is an excellent way of having information on your child, in case God forbid, they are in an accident or kidnapped. The parents keep the kit and the fingerprints. How is this exploitation? Get the facts straight please,before you criticize a wonderful program. Sounds like paranoia.

I like the idea of providing fingerprinting kits for keeping their children's fingerprints on file. Kidnapping has become one of the most known crimes. If I had kids, I'd probably look into this.
