Has anyone given thought to taking DNA and putting it on file at birth? Seems like this would be beneficial and assist a person throughout their life. If a child is lost and then found but can't be identified, or needs a transfusion or transplant, having their DNA on file would expedite the process. Possibly, if a child grows up knowing their DNA is on file and could identify them if they commit a crime, it might discourage them from committing that first crime. Why wait until someone is arrested? This would address the taking of DNA at a first arrest and similar laws proposed in the future.
