(SCANDAL) UK government to save DNA profiles of innocent people!


www.naturalnews.com

If you are arrested in the UK on suspicion that you may have committed a crime but are later proven innocent, your DNA profile will still remain within government databases, according to a new report in The Daily Telegraph. After previously promising that it would destroy all DNA profiles of innocent civilians, except when charges involve violence or sex crimes, the UK government has now decided that it will keep such profiles after all, but do so "anonymously."

This absolutely disgusts me.
I have been arrested, charged and convicted on multiple occasions and I have no qualms with having my DNA on the Database. Its my own fault for committing crime when I was younger and I only blame myself. (Except for the various petty and downright unjust 'laws' that I broke. I think you all know what I am talking about..)


DNA profiles are encrypted numeric sequences that identify individuals within a database system. Law enforcement agencies use DNA profiles to easily identify individuals for the purpose of parental testing or criminal investigation. But UK officials want to retain all DNA profiles of individuals that are taken into custody, regardless of whether or not they actually committed a crime.

The government's excuse for breaching its promise in the matter is that retained profiles will supposedly be categorized anonymously. However, the UK's Home Office minister James Brokenshire openly admitted that it is possible to identify the profiles through simple laboratory analysis, which many civil liberties groups say is absolutely unacceptable.


So now you don't even have to be guilty of a crime to have your DNA categorised and shelved alongside real criminals. I think you should at least be charged with a crime before your DNA gets taken and kept. Let alone convicted and found guilty.

This is Tyranny on a disgusting level.
