DNA IS THE LEGAL WAY

News

DNA is now the new fingerprint, according to The US Supreme Court. The justices ruled that police are now allowed to collect DNA evidence from people they arrest, equating the procedure to standard practices as common as fingerprinting.

The high court ruling was 5-4, but not your usual 5-4. In this 5-4 vote, The US Supreme Court ruled that police officers can take DNA samples without a warrant from people they arrest for any serious crimes without violating the Fourth Amendment.
