NY will swab you for just about any lower level crime and keep your DNA profile in its database.
To make it seem attractive, they say it can be used as an aid in proving your innocence if you should become an innocent person subject of an investigation, in custody awaiting trial or adjudicated wrongfully. Sure saves them a lot of time and trouble where they would need to use creative writing to get warrants for DNA in cases where they probably don’t have sufficient probable cause. ehem.
After this violation of 4th Amendment rights becomes acceptable in states across the nation, wait and see….every baby born will have its DNA profile in a national pre-crime database.
State Rep. Melody McCray Miller wanted a no baby left unswabbed paternity DNA database. We should leave that for the courts in cases where a paternity suit is filed and then destroy the DNA and profile.
