Out of control

A U.S. Senate committee has adopted an amendment to the VAWA legislation that would add the DNA of anyone detained by the cops to a federal DNA database called “CODIS.

Note that it doesn’t require that you’re convicted of a crime or even
formally arrested on suspicion of committing one. Mere detention —
might a routine traffic stop eventually qualify? — will be sufficient
for CODISification. (Current law only authorizes blood or saliva swabs
and entry into CODIS for people convicted of a crime.)

Why do they want the DNA?
