Caribbean Business;3/25/2010, Vol. 38 Issue 11, p30
The author reflects on the call of President Barack Obama for accused criminals to be collected with DNA samples to be stored in a national database in the U.S. The discussion over the effectivity of the system and weather it will violate the right of privacy or not is cited. The author considers the advantages of the system particularly in catching criminals and in identifying the wrongfully convicted, however, suggests to carefully study the issue before it will be enforced.
