Ythanside BS: DNA Why shield criminals? (92* d) RE: BS: DNA Why shield criminals? 15 Jun 07

'surely this would give the same, or better, results)

No, because you assume that the police have their suspect in front of them, and take a DNA sample to confirm guilt or innocence. This would be productive only IF they ever happen upon the perp. By that method any perp could leave town and be free and clear which, given the numbers of unsolved crimes, must be a fairly common MO.
If the police have a DNA sample from the soc, doesn't it seem glaringly obvious that if all DNA is on record then the 'needle in a haystack' scenario is consigned to the dustbin? It does to me.
