Center security

A center in Florida is going whole hog on security. Besides the tornado shelter and the security cameras monitoring the playground, hallways, and gym, parents have to have their fingerprints scanned by a device before they can enter. If your fingerprints aren't on file, you can't go in. The center director says
"it was a better choice than expensive and easily misplaced access cards. If you drop it, someone else could pick it up," she said. "Somebody could get their hands on this card. Nobody else can get their hands on your fingerprint."
I wonder how many people they have had impersonating a parent picking up a kid with a stolen access card.

Now I like security about as much as the next liberal, but this seems like overkill to me.
