Attempted justification for a national DNA Database

Is tucked away here:

Officers believe they have the killer's DNA from the crime scene. The profile does not match anybody on the national database.

How long before someone points out that if we had everyone's DNA on there, they would know who it was?

As if this police state needed a reason. Whether we like it or not, this database is being built on the low down.
I would imagine that everyone who has ever had DNA taken is still on it, even if they do not know about it.
My DNA was taken by the British Transport Police when i was a police officer with them. I was told it was for elimination purposses, and it would be destroyed automaticaly if i ever left. I am under no illusion that my DNA as not destroyed, and will never be released or destroyed, even if i am told it is.

But, we dont live in a socialist police state. Honest!
