DNA testing company gives the FBI access to its database

Reports indicate the FBI has struck up a partnership with one of the largest at-home DNA testing services Family Tree DNA. Family Tree DNA has allegedly allowed the agency to access its genealogy database containing the DNA profiles of over a million users. The partnership could lead to a resurgence of privacy concerns when it comes to law enforcement’s use of DNA testing services.

People always asked my why I was so adamantly opposed to using one of those DNA services. Now they know why.

Well.... now we have a another way to fuck with the system, collect other peoples DNA, send it in for testing under your own name, and send yours under their name....you would hope the authorities would do another DNA test once they have you just to check but who knows haha

No word yet on whether the FBI plans to use DNA results to frame people for crimes.

All the original comments here, probably share a few chromosomes. I am fine with them using this database to solve crimes. like anything, needs a strong oversight. I've read a few stories where they caught the criminal through a relative getting tested. justice is a beaut
