Can we forget about being horrified that our 'human rights' are being compromised for just a teeny minute? Good. Now that you've managed to do that, just imagine the worst scenario. Your loved one has been brutally raped and murdered. You know that their last moments of life were so agonising that they prayed for death. Still reading? Good. Now imagine that ten years pass and you still have no closure because the murderer hasn't been caught. This could be YOU and YOUR family having to come to terms with the fact that the person you love has died violently and that someone out there hasn't been brought to justice. Let's do away with finer feelings and just accept that DNA databases MUST be the law. If it happens then we can't argue - in the same way that we can't argue about poll tax, speed cameras, anti-smoking laws etc. (the list is endless) We're not 'free' now and we will never be - FACT! Does it really matter if we have nothing to hide? I don't care who knows what about me because I have absolutely nothing to hide. What is the problem with these people who are against this DNA database system? Are they afraid that in a year or so they might commit a crime? Or maybe they already have and know that they'll be caught if their DNA is matched? If this becomes law then that's all there is to be said. We will all comply in the same way that we have with all the other laws that infringe on our freedom. And we'll do it because it's the law.
