TTG and I had this discussion the other night, following the conviction of a man who’d murdered a teenage girl over here. Apparently, he’d lived in Australia in the 1990’s, and had convictions for sex offences. His DNA had been taken over there, following the convictions, but because there isn’t an international DNA database, he wasn’t initially linked to the murder.

TTG and I discussed the pros and cons of having DNA put on public record at birth, and I have to say, I’m definitely more for it than against. There’s obviously the civil liberties, and human rights arguments, but I’m of the mind that if you live your life right, then you shouldn’t have anything to fear.

What say you?
