American VoicesOpinion ISSUE 49•23 Jun 4, 2013

The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that police can swab a suspect for DNA during an arrest—though prior to any trial or potential conviction—in cases of a “serious offense,” with Justice Antonin Scalia joining three liberal justices in dissent. What do you think?

  • “I should get arrested with my son to see if he’s really mine.”

  • “Wait, only ‘serious offenses’? Then why did that meter maid run her finger along the inside of my mouth?”

  • “Looks like Scalia is just another traitor. By my count, that’s nine traitors on the Supreme Court.”
