crimeandpunishment writes “If Governor David Paterson has his way, New York would take DNA samples from even the lowest level of criminal….doubling the state’s DNA database. He says it would help to both solve crimes and clear people who were wrongly convicted. New York would become the first state in the country to do this. Currently DNA isn’t collected in most misdemeanors. The plan is getting lots of support among law enforcement, but the New York Civil Liberties Union says there are questions about privacy.”
