House passes Bill requiring DNA samples for arrests even when there’s no conviction

The United States Government has been systematically chipping away at Constitutional rights for many years. In yet another assault on privacy and individual rights, the House passed a Bill, by unanimous vote of all Democratic members, that will require people who have been arrested but never convicted to have their blood drawn by needle, analyzed, and kept in a DNA database. While it will be nice to have more DNA to investigate serious crimes, people who have been wrongly accused and exonerated should not have to withstand the additional insult of providing blood samples to be kept in a DNA database.
