Grammy-nominated rapper 21 Savage arrested, faces deportation

SITUATION
A rap-artist based in Atlanta named ‘21 Savage’ has been arrested. The U.S. Immigration officials made the arrest. They said that the artist was in the country illegally and was a convicted felon.
The real name of 21 Savage is Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph and he entered the United States from the United Kingdom in 2005. He allegedly overstayed his visa and remained in Atlanta, said the spokesperson for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Abraham Joseph was in custody in Georgia and faces deportation proceedings in federal immigration courts. He was arrested for felony drug possession as a part of a atargeted operation, where the local law enforcement agencies and the ICE were involved.
The artist’s lawyer says that he was a ‘role model’ and was working on financial literacy programs aimed at helping underprivileged youth.
The 26-year-old artist’s lawyer did not say if the artist was eligible for protection under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA program, which protects “Dreamers” who happen to be young immigrants brought illegally to the United States as children. The DACA program does not protect those convicted with felonies.
Upon his arrest in 2014, the ICE did not know that he was from the UK. They learnt the same later.
CHALLENGE
There are many such alleged criminals languishing in prisons, who might have committed crimes overseas and who may have come into a country illegally. They must be tried for their crimes in their previous country.
If they have entered a country after committing countries then it is highly probable that they have used illegal means to cross-over. Not only are they liable to deportation but also interrogation in order to discover the immigration enablers and traffickers.
In this case, the truth of Abraham-Joseph was not known for more than 4 years after his conviction. This is  grave injustice to the country which the victim has fleed, but also to his or her victims, to whom justice is being denied, because of the inadverdant departure of the suspect.
There is clearly a time lag between discovering the intelligence which is out there. In fact, if conventional methods are used, then there is no definite time and guarantee within which the intelligence will be uncovered.
There isanimmediate need to bring about standardization and a sense of reliability to forensic sciences.

WHY BRAIN FINGERPRINTING?
There is a savior, a Massachusetts based company named Brainwave Science, has come up with a cutting edge tool name Brain Fingerprinting. It helps take forensic science to another level. It can point towards and map the very origin of deception. This happens to be stored within the brain of a perpetrator.
Brain Fingerprinting works by detecting if specific crime-related information is stored in the brain of the test subject or not. The test subject is made to look at crime-related information which only a witness or a perpetrator would know. This crime-related information is gathered using a specialized computer and propeietary headset. Brain Fingerprinting relies on the principle that the memory centres of the brain respond to the sight of a familiar stimuli by exhibiting electrical stimuli. Brain Fingerprinting is able to identify if this unique type of elictrical stimuli has been emitted by the brain on being to exposed to a certain stimulus or not. Brain waves do not lie. There are no known countermeasures to the Brain Fingerprinting test. Its results are 99.9 per cent accurate. Brain Fingerprinting is an extremely useful technology because it is applicable in more than 85%-90% of all criminal and civil cases On the other hand, DNA or conventional fingerprinting tests have limited applicability because related samples are only uncovered in only 1-2% of the cases. There are no false positives or no false negatives in a Brain Fingerprinting test. What makes this test extremely reliable is that it relies on brain information processing and not on emotional responses.
A Brain Fingerprinting test lasts for about 45 minutes. In this test, there is no form of torture. As soon as the test is concluded, the Brain Fingerprinting System tells the test administrator whether crime-related information is present or absent in the brain of the test subject. This can go a long way to help the investigators quickly screen the suspects.
The afore-mentioned stimuli can be images, words or phrases which are related to the specific crime. The pre-requisite to conducting a brain fingerprinting test on a human subject, who usually happens to be a suspect or a witness, is that investigation must have been carried out in the case.
In this case, when the artist undergoes the test, he will be shown stimuli such as details of the crimes he had conducted in the UK, the routes he took to reach the US, the CCTV footage, phone records, money trail which indicate the means used to exit and enter the United States. Information related to the drug related offences committed in the US can also be shown in order to identify if 21 Savage has a prior recollection of these events.
Brain Fingerprinting helps the investigative agencies to get the outlaws punished and the blameless get absolved. Brain Fingerprinting is not just limited to immigration cases, but equally applicable to human trafficking, drug trafficking, national security, border security, counter terrorism and law enforcement.
The details gathered from the investigation are used as stimuli to conduct Brain Fingerprinting of the witnesses and the arrested suspects. The stimuli can be in the form of pictures, words or phrases. The test subject looks at these stimuli on a computer screen while wearing a specialized headset.
The investigative agencies in the United Kingdom and the United States can benefit hugely if they take the help of Brain Fingerprinting in their pursuit of other such persons who flee the country soon after committing crimes. Brain Fingerprinting delivers reliable results in a fraction of the cost, time and manpower which is otherwise used by conventional methods of gathering information.
