    Feds to collect DNA from every person they arrest

    WASHINGTON - The government plans to begin collecting DNA samples from anyone arrested by a federal law enforcement agency — a move intended to prevent violent crime but which also is raising concerns about the privacy of innocent people.

    Using authority granted by Congress, the government also plans to collect DNA samples from foreigners who are detained, whether they have been charged or not. The DNA would be collected through a cheek swab, Justice Department spokesman Erik Ablin said Wednesday. That would be a departure from current practice, which limits DNA collection to convicted felons.

    Expanding the DNA database, known as CODIS, raises civil liberties questions about the potential for misuse of such personal information, such as family ties and genetic conditions.

    Ablin said the DNA collection would be subject to the same privacy laws applied to current DNA sampling. That means none of it would be used for identifying genetic traits, diseases or disorders.

    Congress gave the Justice Department the authority to expand DNA collection in two different laws passed in 2005 and 2006.

    There are dozens of federal law enforcement agencies, ranging from the FBI to the Library of Congress Police. The federal government estimates it makes about 140,000 arrests each year.

    Justice officials estimate the new collecting requirements would add DNA from an additional 1.2 million people to the database each year.

    I think it is ridiculous for law enforcement agencies to collect DNA from everyone they arrest but I am not surprised at all. I'm sure that they plan to do something with it other than *collect* it. There has to be an ulterior motive behind this. They already get your fingerprint, they don't need DNA too.:SuN025:

    Very interesting. There are many "conspiracy" theories that can arise out of this.

    The govt may try to clone us . . .

    They may be coming up with an african based biological weapon!
