House of Rep approves expansion of DNA database

Courtesy of Kip Esquire last week (yeah, I’m a little bit late getting around to posting this), our esteemed House of Representatives approved a bill that allows collection of DNA from people arrested (read: not convicted)

Creepy. And nothing funny to add on my part.

The only way I don’t see this passing is if it suddenly dawns on Congress just how many of them will be directly affected by this. Wait, they hardly ever avoid the conviction, so I suppose this change in the law won’t matter much.
