U.K. cops arrest people âjust for the DNAâ - Europe- msnbc.com
I smell William Joyce.
Actually, I saw more of him in this one:
"Under Labor's surveillance state, everyone is treated as a potential suspect," he said.
Well, isn't their legal system based on the presumption of guilt till proven innocent?
I have mixed thoughts on this. While I think that DNA databases are just the logical modern equivalent of collections of fingerprints and mug shots and I certainly wish the police to have all the tools they need in order to solve crimes, there are ethical considerations to be made too. And precautions against the possibility for abuse of personal info must be in place.
It should be pointed out that DNA profiling also eliminates suspects.
And some folks wonder WHY Irish Catholics in N. Ireland want out from under the weight of the British Crown???
Irish Catholics in occupied N. Ireland have been treated like this for hundreds of years by the Brits. Arrested by British police for shits and giggles. Presumed guilt--crime or no crime--the police would just make one up if they needed to. Summary executions in retaliation for IRA crimes--innocents, including mothers and children.
Welcome to their world!
We're all supposed to give a shit NOW because their behavior is now affecting blacks??
Yes, you are. You, of all people. But I guess your oppressors won. They beat you into a bitter apathetic pulp.
Obviously they won---I'm posting from the USA instead of Co. Fermanagh, N. Ireland.
The Brits drove my family off their land during the potato famine.
And 4 generations later, here I am annoying the piss out of you!
What's the menu for an Irish 7 course banquet?
A six pack and a spud.
