A judgement on DNA

2007-09-06

The BBC reports that someone suggests that everyone in the UK, resident or visitor, be recorded on a DNA database. The issue is not that someone thinks this, says it, or has it reported by the BBC, but…

How did this man come to be a judge?

    Firstly, it should be noted that this man is well known as a liberal judge.
    Secondly, he has an interesting point. If we’re going to have a DNA database, restricting it to that set of people who have been picked up by the police in the past gives it a number of unjust biases. One could have a just DNA database in a few other ways (e.g. only convicted criminals); he has picked the simplest.
    Still a really nasty idea, though.
