The NYPD's new DNA dragnet: The department is collecting and storing genetic information, with virtually no rules to curb their use - NY Daily News

If you think clandestine DNA dragnets and secret databases are things of science fiction, I have some upsetting news.
NYPD is going door to door to get DNA samples of people in low-income communities.
China is collecting DNA in a dragnet on minorities. Wait...wut?
Cooperate with police by giving a DNA sample to help solve (or clear yourself in) some awful crime? You're in the database to nail for anything and everything else in future. "In this respect, [you] will be treated just like someone convicted of a crime."
"Under their labor contract with the city, rank-and-file officers don’t give the lab their DNA, which means the lab can’t easily rule out possible crime-scene contamination. "
