Personally in principle, I don't have a problem with my DNA being on a Police database, as it will clear you if you are innocent, as it will convict you if guilty. Although recently, the Low Number DNA has been thrown into termoil with the setting free of th aledged bomber in N. Ireland and the judge questioning this practice. However, like with all this government touches, will it just be the Police that will have this information, or will they pass it to other government and none government agencies for them to loose it, or as DVLA did several years ago, sell the information on to a private company! Then there is the issue of knowing a patients DNA to check of known defects and therefore more prone to illness and disease, if the insurance companies got hold of that, would they then refuse to insure you? Personally I DON'T trust this shower of SH1T not to missue it, even if it for all the benifits it COULD bring to the UK!
