Should governments create a DNA database of all citizens?Submitted by john jay on Fri, 05/09/2014 - 01:17
From my perspective, a DNA database should be established with information from all citizens to improve the safety of society. In my opinion, it shouldn’t replace conventional criminal investigations, but be used to aid in the gathering of suspects for a crime so that the process leading up to interrogation is rapid. I believe that the benefits of using the database outweigh the potential negatives. It may be an invasion of freedom, but saving lives through preventing crime is surely a higher priority. Criminals shouldn’t be able to walk free from a crime without having faced justice; otherwise the integrity and welfare of society will diminish.
