    I don't think it's the same...it's like fingerprints.

    I like it...

    No different than a fingerprint and much more useful in solving crimes

    Maybe we shouldn't take their pictures either....too big an invasion on their privacy

    I would agree. This would be a deterrent to a resorting any further to crime, especially violent crimes. Why? Because in any future criminal act you could be identified like you would be with a fingerprint from any dna evidence left at any crime scene.

    Only people in the military service and criminals have prints recorded in the fingerprint data-base, so until a crime is first committed no record of a fingerprint exists.

    If a person was found to be not guilty of any crime, or if their criminal deed were expunged because of some youthful mistake, the dna could be expunged too; but why do that? My own fingerprints still exist in the fingerprint database if military records are. Not ever having committed a criminal act, I'm not at all concerned.

    Federal employees also are in the system (fingerprints).

    Texas has a system too--everyone with a drivers license is in it
