After black community leaders complained to Police Chief Timothy J. Longo that DNA dragnet testing of black men amounted to racial profiling, Longo agreed in mid-April to place limits on the tests. Police can no longer request cheek swabs from black men simply because they look suspicious or resemble a police sketch of the rapist. Officers now must notify a supervisor first, then inform the men stopped that they do not have to give a sample. If the men refuse, the officers will need to get a court order. In a practice decried as racist, police have stopped nearly 200 black men to ask them for cheek-swab tissue samples. http://courttv.com/news/2004/0503/dna_ap.html This is the type of attitude that allows crime to prevail in "certain" areas. Only a area of large criminal element would object to this action by law enforcement. In the area where I live these actions by the police would be praised.
