ACLU of Northern California is challenging a California law that requires all felony arrestees to give a DNA sample
U.S. courts will soon decide whether Americans can have the expectation of privacy over their DNA, reports Kate Moser at the Recorder.

Michael Risher of the ACLU of Northern California is challenging a California law that requires all felony arrestees to give a DNA sample.

He argues that Americans “don’t want the government to have all that information about us.” The government doesn’t have the right to demand our genetic material – including the wealth of personal information it holds – even if it promises to use it only for law enforcement, Risher claims

DNA taken from rapists and child molesters should be mandatory.

Not for someone who is innocent until proven guilty though.

I wonder what these DNA databases are really for.
