Things That Blow My Mind

I'm all for catching serial killers but doesn't this seem kind of unconstitutional?
Police officers in Daytona Beach are swabbing the mouths of persons of interests during traffic stops with special DNA kits in the hunt for an elusive serial killer, sources close to the investigation told Local 6.

[...]

"Genetically, we know who he is," Chitwood said. "We have DNA evidence from the murder scenes -- so, we got that. That is never going to go away. And, sooner or later, we will match the DNA to the physical person and bring closure to everything that is going on."Agents are using the DNA kits to collect as much DNA as possible during traffic stops and special operations in hopes on making a match."
The 4th Amendment is getting a little harder to read with BushCo constantly pissing on it but this is what it says:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
It used to be important. Now it's just inconvenient.
