Fake DNA

The Daily Telegraph has a report that Israeli scientists have 'faked' some DNA by obliterating all traces of DNA from a blood sample and add someone else's genetic material in its place.

The report continues:

"The findings threaten to undermine the key forensic technique, which has secured thousands of convictions in Britain and around the world.It demonstrates that, in theory, criminals could plant samples of blood or saliva at crime scenes to cover their tracks while leading to innocent people being wrongly convicted."

Now, if criminals could plant samples of blood or saliva......leading innocent people being wrongly convicted, you can bet your last penny that governments...................?

And they want our DNA on a central database?
