Arrests are being made to expand DNA files

#1
Well well. Who would have guessed that, eh?

"Police are routinely arresting people simply to record their DNA profiles on the national database, according to a report published today.

It also states that three quarters of young black men are on the database. The finding risks stigmatising a whole section of society, the equality watchdog has warned.

The revelations will fuel the debate about the DNA database, the world’s largest. They are included in a report by the Human Genetics Commission, an independent government advisory body. It criticises the piecemeal development of the database and questions how effective it is in helping the police to investigate and solve crimes.

Jonathan Montgomery, commission chairman, said that “function creep” over the years had transformed a database of offenders into one of suspects. Almost one million innocent people are now on the DNA database."

The report’s foreword states that the DNA profiles of 75 per cent of black men aged 18 to 35 are recorded. But the commission admitted that it had “hardened up slightly” earlier estimates quoted in Parliament.
Outside of the porn world what does “hardened up slightly” mean?

Exaggerated, even in Parliament you aren't allowed to say lied!

This is all scare mongering tosh. The DNA database is only there to ensure Mr Brown can clone a new generation of a Labour voting Master Race to rule the world after he has blown this one to kingdom come with Islamaphobic warfare, satrted by the great Satan Tony Bliar 8O
