    Operation No Refusal

    I just saw where the police dept. here is using this new system that allows police to draw blood from suspected drunk drivers here in Dallas over Memorial Day weekend. There will be judges on hand to sign warrants for the blood test. Suspected drivers do not have the right to refuse such test and be taken to jail with the normal penalty of suspension of driving time.

    My question is this,

    What will be done with the DNA obtained from these tests? Will the sample be added to the database for future reference? What about a situation in which there is no just cause for the sample, or if suspects are not proven to be guilty of a crime? I in no way support drunk drivers, or have no intention of committing a crime in which my DNA will be used against me, but seems like another example of the government overstepping boundaries.

    Any thoughts?

    I don't disagree with the strategy, I guess I have a problem with the principle of the thing.

    i'd say no, but i don't know if it's been tested in courts yet..

    the only defense at this point is to say no, and then make them forcibly take the blood.. the issue is i don't know if they will be able to get a nurse to do that, as her liability insurance will become very high..

    I know colorado has the forcible blood draw thing, Minnesota does not, if you refuse, you lose your license for 1 yr, no trial needed..

    my argument is.. but you don't have a dui on your record, and you don't have to go to those stupid classes..
