In a “supremely” boneheaded decision, the U.S. Supreme Court has decided that it's acceptable for police to collect DNA from a suspect without consent. So in their view, the forcible collection of DNA doesn't constitute an illegal search and seizure. Yes, in the particular case the court ruled on, the guy turned out to be a rapist. But the larger picture is that the court has ruled that your genetic information isn't private and your DNA isn't your property. The implications of this are astounding and wide-ranging.
