DNA Records Could Create "future police state"

The BBC report GeneWatch? have stepped up and said DNA databases might be a bad thing. Of course, nobody's liberty was ever wrongly infringed, least of all because of their supposed identity (as opposed to their proven actions).

DNA in databases should have a timeout, such that any record not consulted after "n" months is removed. Similarly, DNA shouldn't go on the database in the first place unless you're actually convicted of something.
