    Im not sure I like the idea of requiring all people , who have not been convicted of a crime to submit DNA.

    Because DNA has a lot of implications other than just identifying you. For instance, it could affect your insurance rates.

    To me, it is the equivalent of requiring a person to testify against themselves....it breaks the 5th.... imho.

    but who really knows??

    DNA is intrinsically more private than a finger print, IMO.

    I dont think they analyze the DNA that deeply when they do it for forensic purposes.

    DNA profiling - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    They can give you a full body cavity search before jailing you. I dont know anything more intrusive than that.

    Ha!

    Well yes. However a body cavity search falls under insuring the saftey of others. Finger printing you makes sure you are who you say you are.

    You should need a warrant for DNA, it shouldnt be something the government
    is automatically entitled to when someone is arrested.
