DNA database plans for children who 'could become criminals'
HOW CRAZY IS THIS?
Primary school children should be put on the national DNA database if their behaviour suggests they will become criminals, a senior Scotland Yard expert said yesterday.
If there "behaviour" suggest they will be criminal?
Have a temper tantrum in pre-school? Oh he is sure to be a criminal!
Throw a toy! Well ya know, that one will surely bludgeon someone.
Hit another child! There's a perp!
He or she may still have an "accident", but hell, we already know that's a criminal!
Does this strike anyone as odd, way out there, or what the hell is that about??
Will this follow this child all through school ?
Is this rational? Or even healthy for child to labelled a potential criminal at such a young age?
Is it even realistic?
What parent would allow this?
There was a voice of reason
Chris Davis, of the National Primary Headteachers' Association, said Mr Pugh's suggestion could be viewed "as a step towards a police state."
He added: "It is condemning them at a very young age to something they have not yet done. To label children at that stage and put them on a register is going too far."
Doesn't this make home schooling look that much more attractive, and a way to save your children from excessive state intervention??
Let's hope sanity prevails.
