Poway Skatepark Fingerprinting Buzz

poway skatepark fingerprintingYou may soon have to register your fingerprint to use the Poway Skatepark. That’s their latest clever method towards keeping it a “safer” place. This futuristic method of admittance towards entering a skatepark sounds full proof in keeping the trouble makers out of the skatepark for good right? Wrong!

In a sense I guess it does keep some strays out, but all it takes is one registered kid with his pack of homies to tag alongside him and enter without scanning their own prints. I highly doubt the door has a mind of its own enough to close after one person enters. You will still have bullies, you will still have trouble makers, and you will still have someone inside tagging on something.

Yes you can probably keep the local bum from entering and spending the night in the snake pit but your not going to solve the entire problem by putting in that finger scanner. All that money that was spent on the damn-thing could have been used towards better things, like improvements to the park. Maybe some improved drinking fountains, or some extensions to the park. A lot of the coping in there is beat and pretty sticky already even with wax thrown on it. So if they are going to spend $50,000 on cameras then what’s the point of throwing in the finger scanner?

Someone would have to be completely stupid to mess up while in there, knowing their fingerprint is pre scanned. The shady people sneaking in with the finger approved friend causing trouble still aren’t going to get caught. That $50,000 would have gone down the drain just like that. Might as well stick the video cameras in the back of an alley.
