Is the EU going to follow all of us?

When having a look at the agenda of the Council Ad Hoc Group on Information Exchange for 19 February 2009, I saw an agenda item that puts tears in my eyes:
4. Automated searching of DNA profiles, fingerprints and vehicle registration data pursuant to Council Decision 2008/615/JHA on the stepping up of cross-border cooperation, particularly in combating terrorism and cross-border crime

a) Report from the VRD experts meeting on 12 February 2009
b) Formalities for implementation and evaluation procedure
No, no, no problem, these things are only used against criminals! Don't worry, the EU Council is caring for our security, and there is no problem in the exchange of DNA profiles, fingerprints, and vehicle registration data!

Only criminals have to fear those measures, so please ignore those developments - it's just information exchange!!

We are Borg. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.
A joke? Maybe.
