Arrests made just to get DNA samples
This article speaks for itself. It seems British law enforcement officers are arresting people just for the sake of obtaining more DNA samples from
the general population. How this type of behaviour can be allowed and accepted in a Western nation is rather frightening. How on Earth can police get
away with this?
One can see the benefits of having a comprehensive DNA database, but this is taking it way too far. It is basically mandatory fingerprinting
Jaywalking, spitting your gum on the road and swearing in public might result in your DNA profile being uploaded to a centralised network. Considering
the number of CCTV cameras and now this, Britain seems ever-closer to establishing an official Police State.
People in Britain need to make LOTS of noise over this. If you sit back and allow this form of mandatory fingerprinting
to proceed, what will
happen in the future?
