+ - Yale Law Student Wants Everybody's DNA-> 1

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Michael Seringhaus, a Yale Law School student, writes in today's NY Times, "To Stop Crime, Share Your Genes." In order to prevent discrimination when it comes to collecting DNA samples from criminals (and even people who are simply arrested), he proposes that the government collect everybody's DNA , from birth perhaps (yes, you heard that right). If this guy is really serious, it is really scary."

  • It only aids the the prosecution of a small number crimes. Most of the crimes that effect the majority of us are spottily investigated at best. Think about the infractions that effect your quality of life and threaten your safety daily. The only value here would be a slight increase in the ease with which a small fraction of relatively rare yet serious crimes are prosecuted.
