I suspect the government has been using DNA for a long time. The military had the internet back in the 50s or 60s.

The article tries to justify the taking of DNA information by the government of all citizens, because it closed some old cold case homicides.

But the question must be raised, as with the vast government surveillance of electronic communications, treating the entire population as criminal or terrorist suspects, are our lives *improved* by this, or *diminished*?

At a personal level, would you be willing to pay someone $10,000 a year to keep you and your family under intense surveillance at all times? There are likely some people who would.

I don’t know why they don’t catalog the DNA of newborns. Future crime solving would be so much easier if the only traceable evidence was just a strand of hair......
