Police debate use of family DNA to ID suspects

There are 1 comment on the Santa Cruz Sentinel story from Feb 9, 2010, titled Police debate use of family DNA to ID suspects. In it, Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that:

Police in at least two states are increasingly using a DNA crime-solving technique that some legal experts say amounts to guilt by association: If your brother, father, uncle or son has been in trouble with the law and is in a DNA database because of it, you, too, could fall under suspicion.

This is horrible! It sounds goodl catching criminals and all, but the ramifications are chilling. Many law abiding families have a member or two who may be invivled in criminal activitie, it doesn't mean the whole family. We know of dna being used to exoneratel we are alo hearing of dna being planted. there are always those, both on the criminal side and law enforcement side who will play dirty. This also gives more opportunity for employers and insurance companie to discriminate against people based on dna testing.
