Deoxyribonucleic Acid

That's DNA. This story has me very concerned.

My dad once told me a long time ago the following:

"If the government has anything to do with it, it will be all fucked up." Keep that in mind as you read on.

Those of you reading this who know my dad will agree that it is pretty much an exact quote. Anyway, I cannot voluntarily give my DNA to the government like those folks in Massachusetts did. No, I don't have anything to hide so don't start.

Imagine if there were a clerical error or a corrupt DA just wanted to convict someone - no matter the evidence! I know these things sould far fetched, but they just might happen.

Many have spent years and years in jail for crimes they did not commit. The story above, in my opinion, just presents an opportunity for the government not only to make an error, but to sieze my private property (yes, your saliva is your property).

The only way the government will get my sample is if they come for it with a proper warrant issued by a judge. It is the same thing entering my house. No warrant, no enter.

The "Dad" you referred to enjoyed being quoted---and I can attest to the fact that it was a quote !
