DNA testing of inmates is wrong

Kudos to John Burton for threatening to kill the proposed forced DNA testing of inmates. While the current political climate may support this invasive bill; many of us recognize it as the first step in gutting our civil rights in the name of law and order. Perhaps some Republican senator may soon propose the forced DNA testing of all Americans to substantially increase the database. More prisons can be built to house the thousands more that may need to be incarcerated; others could be disposed of more quickly. Given the unreliablity of medical testing today, we would, in effect, all become possible casualties of this latest misguided war on people.
