Firstly, DNA gathering and then storing it all into a database would be a morally correct decision to have. To start off, Crime rates would drop a large amount because of the mere presence of a database ready to pull up anyone's information related to that said crime. I believe that this system will greatly benefit humanity as a whole and that we have a moral obligation to make the best world we can. If a crime is committed and your name is pulled up, You go to court and the truth can be found. At the end of the day, You either didn't have a hand in it, Or you did. At this point, You have nothing to lose.

Secondly, Having a DNA database on hand would not hurt anybody at all. Having a form of information that you can pull up and match DNA to someone then be sure of it is pretty useful. For example, Let's say a rape were to be committed and the crime was reported within a week by the victim. Without the database, Since it is unjust in your view, Finding out if the accused rapist is actually the suspect is very hard to determine when no other evidence were to be provided such as visual evidence. With the database at hand, You could take some samples (if they were still available) and run them through the database then find a match of whom it was. I would like to roll this back to my first point that crime would be a new low if this was present. Morally, This would be the right thing to do for the safety of everyone. I would argue further that opposing this database would be morally unjust as it would needlessly endanger countless citizens.

Crime = Bad

Sometimes you have to do a bit of bad to get something morally right to work.
