I see, i see.

Well, but the argument, that the fingerprints are not in a centraized  
database, is no arguement: the polices will have drect access to the  
data after closingtime of the local resident's regristration office  
and at weekends. A centralized acces is simply not neccessary in a  
dezentralised, but connected system.

Furthermore, on the EU-level a centralized european database of all  
europeans is planned -> Eurodac

These are european strategies, therefore we have to fight it on a  
european level.
