"Release the Tiger!"

We already allow fingerprints for arrest, not just conviction. What's the big deal about DNA sampling? We already allow DNA sampling for arrest, not just conviction... what's the big deal about chipping?

"Sir we got the comrade located at 36 38 51.1 N 94 35 5.3 W No other heat signatures in the area..."
"Thanks, Sam. Bob... release the tiger!"

That's why it is for me, a watershed event.

It _is_ unfair to the arrested and unconvicted to forcibly take their DNA samples.

That is why I advocate the State taking DNA samples voluntarily at birth, and as a condition of first use of any tax-payer subsidized goods or services.

And I am not for releasing the tiger, either, in the case of unauthorized use of taxpayer goods or services. I think deportation is sufficient, to a country of their choosing, or with a taxpayer-supplied raft in international waters.

Same deal for not paying taxes, after first use of any tax-payer subsidized goods or services.

Ciao;

A Libertarian - no free-loaders on my taxes, get it? I grant you freedom from taxation.

Well, if no other country would take them, yes. School of hard knocks. And I imagine many countries would run to their rescue. It is amazing what money will buy, in a free market economy.
