There have been reports today that police forces in the European union will share DNA databases to help catch criminals.
This has raised many questions regarding DNA databases and how ethical they are, whether they will cause innocent people to be 'set up' etc etc and it got me thinking
1) SHOULD there be DNA databases?
2) What criteria leads to having your DNA store on these databases?
The UK has been criticised for holding the DNA of more than 1 million innocent people on databases they have been told they need to distroy these DNA files.
3) SHOULD there be DNA databases for the entire population?
4) How do you think this will affect crime rates and criminal activity?
So how do you feel do you feel about DNA databases? Do you think it means that the Big Brother state will be getting more dominant or do you feel this would be a good idea? Your thoughts ladies
