Gun Shoots Criminals With DNA Tags, Marking Them For Later Arrest

DNA tags label rioters and other criminals so cops can find them "at a less confrontational time for officers."
The SelectaDNA High Velocity System works like it sounds--it shoots
people with pellets containing a unique DNA fingerprint. Unlike
rubber-pellet guns, Tasers or tear gas canisters, the technology does
not deter or disable the suspect--he or she can get away seemingly
unscathed. But later, authorities can track down the suspect and arrest
him or her “at a less confrontational time for officers,” according to
the company. Portable readers equipped with ultraviolet light scanners
would be able to verify the synthetic DNA.
The pellets come in rifle or pistol form, containing 14 pellets per
container. All pellets in a pack have the same DNA code. That means you
could tag a lot of people at one event, but you couldn’t necessarily
single him or her out in the crowd--so it would still be hard to tell
who may have incited a riot, rather than just taken part.
Apparently Selectamark (what a name) also makes DNA grease, gel and
spray to tag personal belongings or other items. It could conceivably be
used to tag money in a bank heist, for instance--instead of a lot of
ink exploding in a bag, the would-be robbers would get DNA all over
themselves. If it lands on clothing, it won’t do the authorities any
good, but if the pellets land on skin, their DNA mark will stay there
for up to two weeks, The equipment was unveiled at the gun trade show The SHOT Show in Las Vegas.
