House votes to expand national DNA arrest database

http://news.cnet.com

Millions of Americans arrested for but not convicted of crimes will likely have their DNA forcibly extracted and added to a national database, according to a bill approved by the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday.

By a 357 to 32 vote, the House approved legislation that will pay state governments to require DNA samples, which could mean drawing blood with a needle, from adults "arrested for" certain serious crimes. Not one Democrat voted against the database measure, which would hand out about $75 million to states that agree to make such testing mandatory.

Why on arrest?

c-i-a 4 years 7 weeks 5 days 4 hours ago

I asked this about fingerprinting, now about DNA collection. This invasion of privacy and livestock tagging is a punishment. Punishments rightfully come *after* conviction. That's if the thugs follow their own code, in any case. Execution by cop, without due process, is becoming more common; it seems like the court system is being phased out, possibly to prevent jury activism.
