I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

You are reporting the following comment to the PledgeBank team:

The principle of "innocent until proven guilty" is violated whenever people are made to account for themselves without just cause. If I had to produce an ID card on demand anytime, or risk going to prison, I might as well *be* in prison!

ID cards will be wide open to abuse and will actually *increase* crime, not reduce it. ID card forgery, misuse of ID database ..... not to mention the chaos that will be caused *when*, not if, the technology breaks down.
