Police can collect DNA from arrestees, [US Supreme Court] court says
jun 3, 2013

A sharply divided [US] Supreme Court on Monday cleared the way for police to take a DNA swab from anyone they arrest for a serious crime, endorsing a practice now followed by more than half the states as well as the federal government.

But the four dissenting justices said the court was allowing a major change in police powers, with conservative Justice Antonin Scalia predicting the limitation to "serious" crimes would not last.

"Make no mistake about it: Because of today's decision, your DNA can be taken and entered into a national database" ...[or] ... taking your DNA when you fly on an airplane ... [or] ... taking your children's DNA when they start public school." [Justice Antonin Scalia]

Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler agreed that there's nothing stopping his state from expanding DNA collection from those arrested for serious crimes to those arrested for lesser ones like shoplifting.

e: ... anything ... anybody ... everything ... everybody ...
