[/url]

In a press release, the ACLU "criticized the Justice Department's move to collect DNA samples of individuals who are arrested or detained by federal authorities – even if they are not convicted, or charged with a crime."

An amendment authorizing that collection was authored by Sens. Jon Kyl (R-AZ) and John Cornyn (R-TX), to be attached to the Violence Against Women Act.

Can this kind of DNA gathering lead to data mining?
