AZ Bill to require DNA swabs of anyone who has to be fingerprinted by the state

And the person must pay $250 for the swab. Unbelievable.

You may soon have to give your DNA to the state and pay $250 for the privilege

.... if the proposed legislation passes, many people from parent school volunteers and teachers to real estate agents and foster parents will have no choice but to give up their DNA.

<snip>

The Department of Public Safety would maintain the collected DNA alongside the person's name, Social Security number, date of birth and last known address.

Any DNA in the database could be accessed and used by law enforcement in a criminal investigation. It could also be shared with other government agencies across the country for licensing, death registration, to identify a missing person or to determine someone's real name.

It could also be provided to someone conducting "legitimate research."

3. and it's going to be shared by any hacker who wants it

the DNA should only be used for law enforcement, and yes I realize that many people don't like the idea of any LEO having access to such information

however, what the hell does "legitimate research" entail?

4. Exactly. What is legitimate research?

That bugged me - and having to pay the $250. Teachers are fleeing education in droves - this is just another reason to get the heck out.

5. Fuck this.

Fingerprints are enough. Otherwise, get a warrant like you're SUPPOSED TO.

this is law enforcement wanting to be lazy on our dime. Fuck that.
