Where do YOU draw the line?

Good morning, Netizens...

Okay, this question has been asked before, and I'm certain it will be asked again, but how do you define the right to privacy?

Case in point:

WASHINGTON - The government plans to begin collecting DNA samples from anyone arrested by a federal law enforcement agency — a move intended to prevent violent crime but which also is raising concerns about the privacy of innocent people.

Mind you, the people being arrested by federal authorities are not necessarily guilty of a crime, but have merely been arrested, pending a hearing and/or court trial.

What is your take on this issue of right to privacy?
