wiedzmin (1269816) writes "A California appeals court is striking down a voter-approved measure requiring every adult arrested on a felony charge to submit a DNA sample. Court questioned the extent to which technology can be permitted to diminish the privacy guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment. More than 1.6 million samples have been taken following the law’s 2009 implementation. Only about a half of those arrested in California are convicted."
