Yay or nay?

I think it's kind of cool. Certain suspects who out run the police and get tagged with this thing can be captured later on. I do see how it can be a big risk towards those who could be deemed innocent though.

This isnt a gun control debate thread. Just your opinions on this gun in particular.

The article already points out why this would be pointless. In order to find the person, you'd have to screen hundreds of people in an area. No thank you.

I see no issue with it, though (as Cory points out) it may be a lot more work to find someone anyway.

That said, it's not like finding a criminal isn't a lot of work in the first place...

pointless.

this would however be an effective technology in bank security, similar to "smart water"

I'm not sure how effective it would be, but sure. Why not?

Nifty idea but is probably more trouble than it's worth.

Presumably for it to work, as Cory said, there'd need to be records of everyone else's DNA, which is kind of weird territory.

The article points out two problems with the idea:

1) It doesn't indicate what the person was doing.

2) Legal issues when trying to follow up on the tagging

They're pretty much already using this with paint, aren't they? Unless the idea is that it won't wash off your skin very well.

Wouldn't there be a way to muck up the DNA anyway? Sure you can't take it off, but I'm sure there's a way to make it useless.

Why don't they shoot little tracking devices instead like the movies. That works 100% of the time.

the article said that it's fluorescent so you should be able to easily see where it is on your body with a UV light and a dark room. however, i always learned that uv light destroys dna in some way or another, so honestly i can't make sense of this. what is it actually? dna information suspending in some sort of protective molecule? and why did they chose to encode the information in dna? surely there is a simpler and less sensitive "polymer" to use.

i'm just really confused how this all works. the article spammed "DNA DNA EVERYBODY TECHNOLOGY" but didn't give the good juicy detals

I don't really see how this would be effective. In a both practical and legal sense.
