Bill A4134 introduced in NJ requiring the police to collect DNA samples of anyone arrested

Thank you, Lisa L., for sharing the following information:

 

"On June 20, 2011, Assemblyman Gary R. Chiusano (NJ-District 24) introduced a bill in the state assembly that would require the police to collect DNA samples of anyone arrested. Currently, only persons convicted of a crime must provide DNA samples. Also in Chiusano's bill (A4134) anyone who refuses to submit a blood or DNA sample could be charged with a fourth degree crime, punishable by up to 18 months in prison, a fine of up to $10,000, or both. People who are not convicted can petition the court to remove their information from the state DNA database. This is clearly a violation of the Fourth Amendment. I really think we should do what we can to stop this bill from passing. I've attached the link to the bill."   -- Lisa L. from South Jersey
