Hi,

Here is another method that the police have used to collected a DNA sample
in the past:

    Seattle Police Trick Gets Judge's Approval
http://www.komotv.com/stories/28382.htm 

    King County Superior Court Judge Sharon
    Armstrong ruled that police did not violate
    John Athan's privacy or other rights by
    sending the New Jersey man a phony letter
    saying he was eligible for money in a class-action
    lawsuit over parking tickets. Athan responded
    to the letter -- and licked an envelope,
    leaving saliva that provided his DNA.

Perhaps the IRS has already built a DNA database from our mailed in tax
returns. ;-)

Declan,

Interesting.  First, it would put DNA on a par with finger prints which are
routinely taken from all detainees.
This is why INS/ICE takes electronic finger prints of anyone dealing with
their system.
Thus, my wife had to get records from an incident that happened 17 years
ago that a DA had declined to file.
The prints are still in NCIC and California AG files but not in the
jurisdiction that made the arrest. (raucous party that night).
Under the proposed law, they would have swabbed her cheek and listed the
DNA profile.
Another group that has been subject to DNA recording are all members of the
military services.
That way, they figure that there will be no more "Unknown Soldiers".

Yours Truly,
Jerome C. Borden
Layton, UT
(where they go into record keeping in a very big way)

U.S., meet Gattica.  Gattica, meet the United States of America.
