LAWLESS BRITAIN

Recommended Posts

DNA evidence cannot prove that anyone committed a crime. It can place a suspect at the scene of the crime or at least some fibres or tissue belonging to the suspect at the scene. Or in the alternative there could be evidence that the victim was in contact with suspect. This is no way proves that 1) an offence took place or 2) there is not some other explanation for the sample's presence. Nothing is black and white which is why the criminal justice system has so many checks and balances in place in an effort to prevent and correct miscarriages of justice. Capital punishment would be a massive step in the wrong direction.

Quite correct Martin. DNA extracted from a sample (assuming that a sample is available) can show a very high likelihood (not 100%) of a match with another sample. Obviously you have to have a sample from your suspect as well. In the case of rape, this can demonstrate the identity of the perpetrator beyond reasonable doubt but as you say in many other cases it wil only demonstrate presence.

 

DNA samples are also very susceptible to contamination. It is certainly a powerful technique but not the magic be-all and end-all that people seem to think.

I believe all the plastic cards and counters in Cluedo share a common DNA, and therefore it could have been any of them in any of the rooms with any of the weapons.

Hang the lot of 'em, I say! Only way to be sure.

Not sure about Mr Jenkins. Something 'fishy', yes, but a very big element of doubt.
