    Whether they are allowed to or not is of no importance. They do.

    What do you fear they might do with your DNA? Make an army with your clones?

    Procreate and prevail, dude. True conservatives welcome being cloned.

    It isn't possible to make a clone with a DNA fingerprint. In fact, a DNA fingerprint provides *very* little information. It isn't to be confused with DNA codes bring mapped out. At best, it is just unique to an individual, and resembles DNA fingerprints of your blood relatives.

    However, I still do not agree with police keeping records of it. There is still room for abuse of the information.

    Why shouldn't they?

    Getting a DNA and fingerprint sample is not a punishment.

    Not until your Pizza delivery service refuses to serve you anything but a salad, because your insurance company has told them to do so, anyways.

    finger print searches from cime scenes only work if the finger print is on record and if someone has had a brush with the law, there's a higher chance of them then other people having a print that might match.
    Anything that helps catch criminals has to been good dosen't it?

    not willingly, no. Which is partly why I didn't want to have an identity card- they've been scraped now so just as well I didn't spend money on that idea.

    But I'd expect to be asked for them if I had a brush with the law- everyone has a job to do right?

    Who was that chief constable that was asked, 'sir, would you give your dna for the purposes of that database ?' The response was simple, 'why, I've done nothing wrong ?!' Enough said methinks...
