As per the news yesterday, a crook who's been on the run for supposedly 30+ years, finally got caught, after the cops accessed the DNA registries on file with several "Family heritage/genealogy sites, such as Ancestory.com

Now in the past on some of the cop shows, they had similar going on, where they would (if checking via normal sources) check say the organ donation list (those registered), or the bone marrow lists.. Saying "Since you gave consent to use those organizations, then its public knowledge, or something to that effect".

Now, who here feels that Cops/FBI (or other LE) should be able to access the DNA on file with databases like that? Do you feel if they do so, those orgs should be required to inform those who use then "HEY our site will collect your DNA and keep it on file, and give it over to cops when asked for"??
