After the online DNA craze, the catching of that rapist/murderer and Georgia cops trying to catch a lady who had an abortion, I’ve started to become really interested in the whole DNA database thing.
Whether you’re liberal or more conservative leaning, I think anyone can see how it could be used for good and for bad and it will definitely be taken to the extreme in the near future.
On that note, I live in a fancy upscale resort-style apartment complex. Within the community there’s a sense of extreme entitlement and people feel they don’t have to clean up after their pets (I just have a cat). The problem isn’t too common yet, but they’re putting a new rule into effect that if they find animal excrement anywhere on the premises, they will take it to a lab, DNA test it and fine the owner $200. And all owners are required to give them a sample of their pet’s DNA.
While I don’t think this is bad, because I think it’s disgusting that people don’t pick up after their pets, I don’t see this going over well- because there was nothing mentioned about this in the lease.
