Is it just me, or do the anti-DNA-database arguments presented in this article fall flat? I agree it would be necessary to include proper controls, such as re-testing to verify the match, but I just don’t see much difference between taking DNA samples and taking fingerprints. And nobody complains when a suspect is fingerprinted. Leave some comments and let me know your take on the subject.

On a side note, any database would have to include some method of dealing with human chimeras.
