I wonder how it’s for people with no family in America. I’m from Chechnya-and we don’t really come to the US. Would be interesting if they opened this up globally
Interesting how her job is to track everyones DNA but uses DuckDuckGo to not be tracked by others. Hypocrite?
Go look up how you are tracked and sold online, you are not the customer, you are the prodeuct being sold.
Now try to wrap your head around what the gov and corporations would do with your DNA.
And by the way, all newborns have been getting their DNA takin' since the 60s, which they say is to screen for health reasons, there are different scenarios, but a lot of hospitals etc. store your DNA, some forever, and a lot sell that DNA.
You trust them?
Paul Holes damn near caught him... his POI at the time (I'll only mention his initials: RR) had the same MO and characteristics he was even a former Police Officer.
but... the Earons GSK pro boards had begged for them to look into that Genealogy 5 years prior to the EARONSGSK being captured by that method.
I had stopped following the case I thought he was dead but my only hypothesis was that he was either Military / LEA / or a postal worker because he did these things alone and he had an S load of time to do it.
I also hypothesized that he stopped because of the 1986 UK DNA case that was solved using DNA.
Both of these latter hypothesis' were shot down on the EARONS pro boards... amazingly
around the time that he was announced as the killer the Oxygen Network had a multi part documentary on the GSK, and the screen blinks red as well Paul Holes winks into the camera...
I was going to CSULB so I had stopped following the case ( I had come to the conclusion that he was dead ) but the night before they announced that he was captured I logged in and MORF posted that the son of a bitch had been caught... originally it was announced as RR (Holes' original POI)
the next day it was JDD
I couldn't believe that he was LEA and former Military .... that's a good look into his MO (I won't share but he used a technique in literally every crime that Military and LEA is taught)
the fact he was italian made it easy and talking about the Mafia made him full blood italian...
we still don't know why he did it lol..
the last murder is extremely disturbing
Hi, from Europe!
I think, the percentage sill be rising up until the 90% if the EEUU laws supress the dead penalty, becouse some people prefers to protect his brothers from this penalty over the victims.
All these databases will be hacked at some point by the NSA. oops!
Yo that thumbnail, looked like Stipe for a sec..🙃
So we are heading towards a world similar to Gattica?
What's the link to the site where you can upload your DNA to help the police?
So, have you now understood why and who needed the Global Pandemic?
It's better that a guilty man walk free than an innocent man go to prison. This is why privacy.
It's okay to not be in the shot when you're talking to someone.
Really, it is.
No need to interrupt the flow of a conversation because you wanna be on screen.
And she's using duckduckgo...

The issue isn't proper use to catch murderers. It's not even necessarily the info being sold to corporations for targeted advertising, although I find that sickening to contemplate. The issue is, what does Mussolini or Pol Pot do with it? You don't get to say it won't happen. On a long enough time scale, the probability any tool or power will be catastrophically misused verges on one. When they euthanize your child because it is deemed genetically inferior, will you still think it's worth it?

Yeah, no. I hate this deeply. Like everyone else says in the comments, if the institutions could be trusted to use this within reasonable bounds it'd be alright. But there's no trust in institutions, nor should there be. No matter what you think of COVID itself or it's origins, one thing is certain: that every one of our social and governmental institutions outed themselves as wildly incompetent and power hungery maniacs the very instant there was an opportunity for them to flex their power.
From local to Federal and everything in between, law enforcement was used and abused to keep people toeing the line. And if anyone said "Hey, isn't it kind of stupid to lock people inside and huddled up over a virus that transmits easily in close quarters and dies in the sunlight?", they had to deal with social and legal authorities crushing them. In many cities they had drones flying over people's houses to see if anyone was in their back yards for God's sakes.
So no, I don't trust these clowns and neither should anyone else. It's not my fault that theyre a pack of megalomaniacal buffoons, but they are, and should be treated as such.
Or it can be used to find political opponents, or simply people the government or any other organization doesn't like Given how often people abuse power I would never do it
This is like reality of mentalist series redjohn
