    Iris photos? I have never heard of this technology being used in the identification of suspected criminals in the field by police officers. Does anyone else know much about this? On google I found some information about NYPD using this system since 2010 but that people are not legally required to let the police takes pictures of their eyeballs.

    Looking at the knot on his forehead I would guess he was less than cooperative before this photo was taken.

          Yay! Your sole existence from your screen name to your comments is to be a Troll. And not just a “troll”, but the actual definition of an Internet Troll. It could even be said that since your screen name is an homage to me, that you’re my own special little Troll. I like! Unfortunately for me you’re most likely just a Sock Puppet of someone who shall remain unnamed. But you are a real hoot grampa!

          As far as the Dumpster Diver, that looks like the spiral coming from an addiction to Methamphetamine That is one drug that should never be considered ok.

            You keep theatening to “Name names” , and reveal all the towns secrets, so why not just do it? If you got such good stuff, please don’t keep us in suspense!
