Genetic Surveillance for All

What if the FBI put the family of everyone who has ever been convicted or arrested into a giant DNA database? Jeffrey Rosen had an article in Slate earlier this week that is thought-provoking piece on the constitutional and political implications of searching the DNA of family members who are presumed innocent and who are more likely to be Afro-American. Now if we could just get all members of Congress to read this article.

Thanks to the Privacy Lives blog for calling this to my attention.
