NBC:

The on Monday upheld the practice of taking samples from people who have been but not convicted of a crime, ruling that it amounts to the 21st century version of fingerprinting.

Um … fingerprinting was always voluntary.

So … essentially, the Supreme Court just ruled that the nation can establish a national DNA database, and take your DNA even though you haven’t been convicted of a crime. All on the premise that you MAY have committed another crime, or MAY commit a crime in the future. So much for innocent until proven guilty.
