Brickbat: Not Very Trusting


DNA sample
Jarun011 /

Want to volunteer in your child's school? Sell real estate? A proposed Arizona law would require you to provide a DNA sample if you want to perform these activities or any other that require a fingerprinting. The state would keep the sample and link it to your Social Security number, last known address and other personal information. The bill would allow the state to share it with other government agencies and with anyone doing "legitimate research." Supporters say the bill would help police solve cold cases and other crimes.

  1. So people in Arizona who need to be fingerprinted to get a state license commit a lot of crimes? That’s disturbing.

    1. Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail.

      1. Do you need DNA to do that google gig?

    1. For whom?

    1. Do they require a DNA sample?
      Asking for a friend – – – –

  3. I guess there really are Nazis in America.

    1. Yes, there are now politicians openly accepting the turning of their party into the national democratic socialist workers party. For example, they advocate fascism, the government control of the economy, and are beginning to adopt policies allowing the killing of citizens.

      1. I 100% believe you. What “policies allowing the killing of citizens” are you seeing coming forth from the United States Socialist Representatives (USSR) — or should we just call them national socialists?

        1. They’ve already taken out US citizens abroad using drone warfare, and now looking at post delivery abortions [let it die or help it along that course]. It’s all out of the box now.

    2. Not they. A Republican legislator.

      1. Damn I read your comment as “They are Nazis in Arizona” hence my not they comment. Fascinating.

  4. I’m sick of these half measures. AZ residents should be forced to willingly submit to any search the state wants to conduct, and all bank accounts and email passwords should be submitted for all to see.

    1. If you’ve done nothing wrong, why should you worry about the gov’t having your bank accounts?

    2. Why not? The bottom 1/4 of the state is already in the Constitution Free Zone – 100 mile 4th amendment exemption and 25 mile ‘we can trash your land all we want’ exemption.

      And the people in Phoenix don’t care – 7/8ths of the state lives juuuuust north of that 100 mile line.

  5. Wow. That is actually quite chilling. Surely there will be a court challenge based on the 4th, 5th and 9th amendments, RIGHT?!?

    1. Arizona falls within the jurisdiction of the 9th circuit; Federalist Society via Trump is replacing several justices, but there are a total of 23 so still quite likely to support anything that serves the purpose of their kind of government

  6. “Supporters say the bill would help police solve cold cases and other crimes.”

    What was that about probable cause?

    1. Outfitting everybody with stun collars with tracking chips and cameras would help police, too. Or, hell, just lock everybody up in cages and get it over with.

      1. Trump and His Trumplodytes (Trump Troglodytes) approve of this message!

        Trumpty Dumpty, He’s quite off-the-wall,
        Trumpty Dumpty won’t stay in His toilet stall
        He just goes ahead and takes His shits,
        Totally regardless of whereever He sits
        Whenever He simply, no way, can sleep,
        He Twits us His thoughts, they’re all SOOO deep!
        He simply must, He MUST, Twit us His bird,
        No matter the words, however absurd!
        He sits and snorts His coke with a spoon,
        Then He brazenly shoots us His moon!
        They say He’ll be impeached by June,
        Man, oh man, June cannot come too soon!
        So He sits and jiggles His balls,
        Then He Twitters upon the walls
        “Some come here to sit and think,
        Some come here to shit and stink
        But I come here to scratch my balls,
        And read the writings on the walls
        Here I sit, My cheeks a-flexin’
        Giving birth to another Texan!
        Here I sit, on the pooper,
        Giving birth to another state trooper!
        He who writes these lines of wit,
        Wraps His Trump in little balls,
        He who reads these lines of wit,
        Eats those loser’s balls of shit!”

        1. I am sitting here asking myself why, oh why, did I read that awful screed.

          1. Dr. Seuss says (that the Lorax says):

            You read the screed,
            ‘Cause you need a thnead!

            1. “Dr. Seuss says”

              Sounds about right for you, the idiot constantly unironically screeching retardedly about adult conversations.

              1. Toolpoopy… With the “ethics” of Darth Vader,
                To child porn, she’s a masturbator!
                Toolpoopy… Living in Mom’s basement,
                Engaging in self-debasement!
                Toolpoopy… A waste of time,
                Living on the taxpayer’s dime.

                1. “SQRLSY One|2.27.19 @ 9:18AM|#

                  Dr. Seuss says”

                  So adult Hihn.

                  1. I hope that you win the debate between you and your head voices!

                    We’ll be rooting for you!

                    1. ” SQRLSY One|2.27.19 @ 9:18AM|#

                      Dr. Seuss says” SQRLSY is trash.

                    2. Zero times zero = zero… No matter HOW many times you multiply the non-contents of your brain, to post them up here as clutter, it will STILL = 0.0000 !!!!

                      Can you do the math?

                    3. ” SQRLSY One|2.27.19 @ 9:18AM|#

                      Dr. Seuss says” SQRLSY, whi is Hihn, should fuck off.

          2. Because you have not yet learned to read the poster’s id before reading the post.
            There are lots of us you should ignore, sort of “do not feed the trolls” kind of thing.

  7. Want to volunteer in your child’s school?

    I trust AZ already has those children’s DNA on file. You know, to help police solve future cold cases.

  8. Are government officials forced to give DNA samples?

  9. Those Californian have been fucking up Arizona for years.

    Its clear that they are winning the fight.

    Bye bye Arizona.

    1. As with CO, NM, and NV; the assholes leave their bankrupt State and bring all of their virtue signaling with them, thinking the outcome will be different.

    2. As opposed to that meth lab with a built-in speed trap that is Georgia. Y’all don’t need anyone to come in a screw up your state; you’ve got that down all by yourselves.

      1. You’re not from around here, are ya?
        And you don’t follow college football either – – – –

  10. A few weeks ago Reason had an article about legislators in AZ who wanted to lift some occupational licensing requirements. They must have read the same thing and overcorrected.
