The probable cause is a political agenda.

A finger print included in the justice's rationalization for the decision is replica of an indentifiable characteristic. DNA is actual material taken from the arresttee-A Search and a seizure. So can how can a search and siezure be done without a warrant?

This also violates and contradicts medical privacy laws because your medical makeup is now public record.

And isn't the supreme court supposed to vote on the constitutionality of a law or an act? And NOT turn " a vote " into a personal opinion/preference referendum. When almost 50% of a court votes to say a law is unconstitutional and it still becomes laws there is something seriously wrong with the judicial system. One must remember that supreme court justices are appointed and approved by politicians so anyone who does not think there are favors to be paid off/done misses the point more than the justices.

Bit by bit chunk by chunk legislation through judicial activism WILL eventually eliminate your rights. It might be slow. It might be through a back door. But rulings like this do nothing but serve an agenda with planned and calculated end game.

No surprise there. Just a means to the end of collecting everyone's DNA.

Nothing's more private than your DNA, for chrissakes. What next, removal of offending organs??

How is this not a HIPAA privacy violation??? Your DNA becomes public information. I can see data mining by corporate America and the intelligence community already.

As as 'sure fire' dna is although harder to test for it's easier to obtain and plant. The process of collection at arrest and the crime scene should come under much greater scrutiny.

Was or IS justice John Roberts comprimised or being blackmailed?

Questions of the influence of clerks has popped up in the past as well.

Justice Roberts seems keep voting in favor of the status quo on this 'big' cases although they all are big at the surpreme court level.

One must wonder if a law enforcement agency or any government agency got proof of something that is a career buster and hang that over Roberts or other justice's heads. Or possibly even stuff on friends, family or staff. This is one reason to get rid of the lifetime appointment. They need accountability. Different administrations would have access to the same information. Remember supreme court justices are appointed and approved by politicians so there IS politics in the process and these judges have to be in the game long before their appointment.

Is it a coincidence that the Supreme Courts rules in favor of DNA collection when Obama has been pushing for a nationwide DNA database for several years now? Or that the NSA is on a massive warrantless data collection program?
