It's not just the Exempt Media ignoring legitimate issues...
Patterico is feeling triumpant about the use of DNA testing to clear old cases.
Understandable, since he's a prosecutor, but still wrong. There
are many problems with taking DNA samples for storage in a government
database, even if the sampling is limited to those convicted of
felonies.... and the law he's so happy about also includes those merely
charged with a felony, not just those convicted.
Allowing the government to build a comprehensive database of criminal DNA is one thing; allowing it to build such a database for all citizens is quite another.
