    Why do you think that is a problem? If DNA is as useful as some prosecutors insist shouldn't we make sure that it is done properly? What is to prevent a technician from lying about DNA claiming it indicates that someone is guilty when he isn't?

    I was going to explain how both sides benefit from, and can abuse DNA evidence, but I figure the OP has no desire or capacity for anything resembling an intelligent discussion of the subject.

    Most law and order types define "clouding the issue" as anything that prevents a conviction, regardless of its validity. "Technicalities" are high up on the list of things which L&O's find objectionable.

    I think the first thing they should find objectionable is a government than can arrest, and convict, people who disagree with them. I guess that makes me a communist or something.

    Well, letÂ’s not allow the facts of evidence to stand in the way of a good conviction.
