The Supreme Court has ruled that it is legal to take your DNA once you have been arrested. This has progressed from only being able to take your DNA once you have been convicted of a felony, then it changed to they could take it if you were convicted of any crime even a misdemeanor and now it has changed so they can take it upon any arrest. So if you are arrested for driving with a suspended license (or anything for that matter) be prepared to have your DNA taken from you (by force if need be) and put into the the State Police and FBI criminal Data Bank even though you are not yet a convicted criminal.

Now try and remember that being arrested does not mean that you are a convicted criminal but they still can take your DNA and put it in a data bank. I hope people can see the writing on the wall here. Soon all of your freedoms will be gone and no one seems to care about it. Why would my DNA be needed if I drove with a suspended license? The natural progression of this is that your DNA is taken at birth and kept in this data bank or wherever else they feel like keeping it.

Most of the sheep in America won't see anything wrong with this and that is the real problem. THIS IS JUST ONE MORE OF OUR RIGHTS THAT HAS BEEN TAKEN WITHOUT ANY BACKLASH OR EVEN ONE PERSON SEEMING TO CARE. The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA'S government and law enforcement grows stronger every single day and the average citizen loses his rights and is taxed to death without even making a sound. WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO US? WHY DON'T WE FIGHT FOR ANYTHING ANYMORE? They keep us so busy working, paying our taxes and our bills that we care more about who the next winner of Dancing with the Stars is than we do about our GOD GIVEN RIGHTS. PEOPLE CAN ONLY BE PUSHED SO FAR BEFORE THEY BEGIN TO PUSH BACK. UNFORTUNATELY, THAT DAY IS FAST APPROACHING.


WASHINGTON (AP) — A sharply divided Supreme Court on Monday said police can routinely take DNA from people they arrest, equating a DNA cheek swab to other common jailhouse procedures like fingerprinting.
‘‘Taking and analyzing a cheek swab of the arrestee DNA is, like fingerprinting and photographing, a legitimate police booking procedure that is reasonable under the Fourth Amendment,’’ Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for the court’s five-justice majority.
But the four dissenting justices said that the court was allowing a major change in police powers.
‘‘Make no mistake about it: because of today’s decision, your DNA can be taken and entered into a national database if you are ever arrested, rightly or wrongly, and for whatever reason,’’ conservative Justice Antonin Scalia said in a sharp dissent which he read aloud in the courtroom.
At least 28 states and the federal government now take DNA swabs after arrests. But a Maryland court was one of the first to say that it was illegal for that state to take Alonzo King’s DNA without approval from a judge, saying King had ‘‘a sufficiently weighty and reasonable expectation of privacy against warrantless, suspicionless searches.’’
But the high court’s decision reverses that ruling and reinstates King’s rape conviction, which came after police took his DNA during an unrelated arrest. Kennedy wrote the decision, and was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas and Stephen Breyer. Scalia was joined in his dissent by Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.
Getting DNA swabs from criminals is common. All 50 states and the federal government take cheek swabs from convicted criminals to check against federal and state databanks, with the court’s blessing. The fight at the Supreme Court was over whether that DNA collection could come before conviction and without a judge issuing a warrant.
According to court documents, the FBI’s Combined DNA Index System or CODIS — a coordinated system of federal, state and local databases of DNA profiles — already contains more than 10 million criminal profiles and 1.1 million profiles of those arrested.
In the case before the court, a 53-year-old woman was raped and robbed but no one was arrested. Almost six years later, Alonzo King was arrested and charged with felony second-degree assault. Taking advantage of the Maryland law that allowed warrantless DNA tests following some felony arrests, police took a cheek swab of King’s DNA, which matched a sample from the 2003 Salisbury rape. King was convicted of rape and sentenced to life in prison.
King eventually pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of misdemeanor assault from his arrest, a crime for which Maryland cannot take warrantless DNA samples. The state courts said it violated King’s rights for the state to take his DNA based on an arrest alone. The state Court of Appeals said King had ‘‘a sufficiently weighty and reasonable expectation of privacy against warrantless, suspicionless searches.’’ But the high court’s decision reinstates King’s conviction.
Maryland stopped collecting DNA after that decision, but Roberts allowed police to keep collecting DNA samples pending the high court’s review.

I'm sick of paying for deadbeat welfare recipients

Last week was a great week for me at work. I made a good amount of money but then when I got my check I saw how my $4,300 quickly turned into about $3,000 after taxes. I understand that we all need to pay taxes but for the life of me I can't figure out where the hell the money goes. It sure doesn't go to fixing the roads around here so I guess it goes to all the deadbeats out there that don't work.

These people really do have it figured out. They don't work but they seem to be doing pretty good for themselves. I met a 35 year old guy the other day and he told me that he is on SSDI because he can't be around people because of his anxiety disorder so he can't work. This jerk sits at home and grabs $900 a month in cash benefits, $600 a month in food stamps and with his section 8 housing he pays $125  dollars a month in rent for his 2 bedroom condo in Revere. Not to shabby for a guy that does not have to get up one day out of the week and go to work.

This is the problem with this country. People like this guy are multiplying every day and pretty soon they are going to outnumber the working class people. Why the hell do I have to help this guy? Why do I have to work my ass off to try and get a head when this guy sleeps until noon and does not have a worry in the world because all of his bills are taken care of. Why would this guy even try and get a job. He would be stupid to get a job. He would actually be losing money.

The working guy (myself included) is a sucker. We work and work and work and pay our taxes so we can take care of these free loaders. Oh and by the way, they have no intention of ever changing. Don't get me wrong, I know there are the few people that have gotten laid off or are in a tough spot that need some temporary help and they will soon be back to work but those people are in the minority. The rest of them are collecting these benefits as a way of life. I cannot believe what this country has become. These people actually believe they have it coming. Why I have no idea. They think they deserve all this stuff.

In the old days there was no such thing as welfare. If you didn't work, you didn't eat. NOT ANY MORE. Just stop on by your local Transitional Assistance office and you are all set. I love the name "Transitional Assistance" where is the transition? I guess they mean you are making the transition from tax payer to dead beat.

I just don't see how this country is going to come out of this. We are digging the hole deeper and deeper and none of these politicians have the balls to say what the real problem is. It isn't military spending or sending aid to some war torn country. The problem is right here in the good old USA and these dead beats who think they have a free ride coming.

I'm no angel and I have a really bad criminal record so if I can find a job in this economy and make over 70k last year than ANYONE CAN. Get off your lazy asses and go to work.

At the very least we should be having these dead beats clean up the streets or paint some bridges or something to justify the money they get. We can't give them drug test because god forbid we make them feel uncomfortable.

This country is going down the shitter and no on cares or has the balls to say anything about it. I'm sick of my tax dollars paying for some lazy bastard that just wants a free ride.

Stop buying crack with your EBT cards and go find a job.

Please leave a comment and let me know if I'm crazy or if you think I'm right on about this.

This article in today's Boston Herald is right on the mark. The problem with the US court system is that they get in bed with the lowest forms of human beings in the world, RATS. The Government will make deals with ANYONE who tells them ANYTHING. They don't care if you killed 20 people or if you stole 20 million dollars. If you tell, you are A OK with them. They will cut your sentence by many years, forgo all your fines and restitution, and even get a gold star for your RAT like forehead.

The thing the Government does not understand or care to understand is that a rat will say or do anything to stay out of prison. They will lie, cheat and steal just to stay on the street so they can commit more crime. A RAT is the lowest form of human. They want to profit from crime and not face the consequences. My father always told me "a construction worker has to worry about getting hit in the head with a 2x4, a criminal has to worry about going to jail". What he means by that is going to jail is just a job hazard for a criminal and if you don't want to go to prison then don't commit any crimes. Not these rats though. They want to cut corners and rob, steal and even murder but not face justice and who can blame them. Shame on the Government for letting them get away with it.

Things need to change with the judicial system in this country but no one seems to care until it happens to someone in their own family. There are many innocent people in prison because some RAT threw them under the bus because they didn't want to do the time they should have and it sickens me.

Something has to change but it won't. The FBI could not crack one case if rats didn't help them and the US Attorneys office is run like a used car dealership where everyone that walks through the door whether employee or criminal comes out a little dirtier every time.

Here is the Herald article, please take a second and read it.

Eagan: Another sleazy move by U.S. attorney, fed court
Feb 20, 2013

I’ve lost my faith in Boston’s federal court and U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz.
Yesterday, former Chelsea Housing Authority Director Michael McLaughlin pleaded guilty to shafting both taxpayers and Chelsea’s poor by knowingly lying about his salary, which ballooned from $77,000 in 2000 to $366,000 in 2011.
His motive, said his lawyer: money.
His jail time: possibly none, according to the plea deal McLaughlin worked out with Ortiz’s office.
Yet last month, computer prodigy Aaron Swartz took his own life after prosecutors in Ortiz’s office threatened him with multiple years in jail for downloading academic journals from an MIT computer system.
His motive: to make these journals available free.
His threatened jail time: up to 50 years.
True, if Swartz had cut a deal like McLaughlin did, he was probably looking at only seven or eight months. Then again, if McLaughlin fails to cooperate with the federal probe, he was facing only 12 to 18 months behind bars.
I can’t see the justice here.
I know, McLaughlin gets a reduced term for helping the government indict more alleged wrongdoers who may, or may not, include Lt. Gov. Tim Murray.
But how sleazy is this deal? Those willing to squeal on former “friends” get rewarded, those who don’t, do not. And those who refuse to plead guilty — because they believe they’re innocent — face bludgeoning, bankruptcy, hounding and harassment.
Recall what Harvey Silverglate, a Boston defense lawyer, has pointed out: The first indictment against Swartz contained four counts with a maximum sentence of 35 years. The indictment after Swartz rejected a plea “upped the ante to 13 counts.”
That translates to up to 50 years in prison and 
$1 million in fines, according to the congressional committee probing Ortiz.
Those familiar with the federal system say this is how things must be done: catch the small fries, turn them, and then catch the big enchilada. But perhaps these apologists have been in the system too long. They can’t see that things have gone too far, that too much wheeling and dealing sacrifices faith in the system and its very integrity.
This is hardly the first time we’ve seen such maneuvering around here. Federal Judge Douglas Woodlock, who presided over McLaughlin’s hearing yesterday, also sentenced Catherine Greig to eight years for abetting alleged serial killer Whitey Bulger on the run.
Meanwhile, Bulger’s former buddy in the Winter Hill gang, John Martorano, served 12 years in jail — just four more than Greig — and he confessed to 20 murders. That deal predated Ortiz’s tenure. But it’s in keeping with the mentality in the U.S. attorney’s office.
And I can’t see the justice in it anymore.
