O'Neill, 48, of Medway, didn't have a criminal record, but her identity
was intertwined with that of a petty criminal who had stolen O'Neill's
license in the 1980s. When the woman was arrested, she gave the license
to police, making O'Neill one of her aliases.
Here's one good reason
to include biometic identification information in an ID. I
wouldn't say it outweighs the many negatives associated with that idea,
but it is at least a valid argument. In a society that has to
keep track of 300 million people, and separate them into "criminal" or
"law-abiding citizen" classes for various reasons, not being able to
tell your citizens apart can harm them.
