Fast Focus 'Should the government collect DNA samples?' We are being exploited

June 23, 2013 

I believe collection of DNA samples from citizens who have committed no crime is an unconstitutional invasion of privacy -- a prime example of our bloated, over-reaching federal government. The current administration continues to abuse its power at our expense, eroding our freedom at every turn. It is a sad "fundamental transformation" of the way our government is run.
