DNA City

Police are requesting an entire town's worth of men to submit to DNA testing to catch a killer. Is that legal? Does that mean anything anymore?

Hey Jordan, it's Al. If I recall correctly from Criminal Procedure (not a guarantee) you would need individualized suspicion before a warrant could be issued to take DNA from any of those guys. But if they're giving away their civil liberties of their own "free will" then it's their own damn fault. As to the police who are saying, "We'll be looking for people with something to hide," technically they aren't allowed to use the exercise of a Constitutional right (the right to be free from unreasonable search) to infer guilt. But, that probably doesn't mean that the cops can't start paying extra close attention to people who they think are "suspicious."
