Police to hold innocent people's DNA

The idea that police can keep DNA and fingerprint records of innocent people worries me, and I'm not entirely sure why. The arguments for this policy are convincingly spelled out by the Law Lords, and I can definitely appreciate why it is wanted, but I still can't help feeling uneasy about it. Maybe I've been reading too much dystopian fiction, but I keep thinking about what they say about the road to Hell.
