The Supreme Court decided this week that police have the right to take DNA swabs from the cheeks of people who have been arrested. Not convicted - arrested. As in not proven guilty. Link to story.
I've said for a long time that we Democrats and members of the ACLU are today's true conservatives. The only Supreme Court justice who fooled me this time was Antonin Scalia. All the other so-called "conservatives" voted on the side of increased police powers - typical of today's "conservatives".
If you are a true conservative and believe in limiting the power of government, then take a close look at who voted for and against these powers. This is of special interest to people who call themselves "libertarians" while voting for Republicans.
Voting for increased police powers: Kennedy, Breyer, Roberts, Thomas and Alito.
Voting against increased police powers: Scalia, Ginsburg, Sotomayor and Kagan.
