Federal Court Rules Collection of DNA from Felony Arrestee is Constitutional

The collection of DNA from a person merely arrested for a crime is certainly problematic insofar as DNA has information not only about a person’s identity, but also about his genetic disposition for mental illness, cancer, diabetes, learning difficulties, etc.  While matching one person’s DNA to the DNA found in a prior crime can resolve previously unsolved crimes, is it constitutional for a state to conduct such a search if it is not necessary to solving a crime for one is arrested?  What if one’s DNA in the pending matter is irrelevant?  Can the police still require such evidence?  Click on the attached article to read answers to these questions – http://www.greghillassociates.com/lawyer-attorney-1888863.html.
