You are the Voter.
The year is 2010. You are preparing to vote on a new bill that requires all citizens to provide blood samples to the local police department. The samples will be used to create a database of genetic information. The police will use the database to identify and apprehend crime suspects and clear innocent people of crime charges. Proponents of the bill argue that it is an essential step in the war against crime. Opponents claim that the information will be misused and that genetic information should remain private. Do you vote in favor of the new bill?
