I would suggest that one day all will be required to give their DNA profile at birth to a Ruling Class to decipher! [:D] Interesting read even if it's base on Blacks getting deciphered more.


DNA databanks have grown exponentially in the last decade as new laws have expanded the range of people subject to having their DNA
forcibly seized, analyzed, and the resulting profile databanked. California's databank is a good example of this. It was originally conceived as a way to connect people convicted of serious
violent crimes with other such crimes in which
DNA evidence is most useful. Thus, the or
iginal 1989 DNA-collection law established a
databank and required people convicted of murd
er or a felony sex offense to provide DNA
samples before they were released from custody.
The state department of justice had the
authority to analyze these samples and include
the resulting analysis in the new statewide
From today's perspective, this program seems quite limited: the only people subject to having their DNA data banked had been convicted of very serious crimes, either by pleading
guilty or after the charges had been proved
beyond all reasonable doubt to a jury.
