A major court decision could change the way police catch criminals in Maryland. It’s a ruling that’s sparking outrage among public safety officials.
Weijia Jiang has more on the DNA debate.
Police say that ruling makes it easier for repeat offenders to get away with their crimes.
A crime-solving tool is under fire in Maryland, and police say public safety is at stake.
“Our concern about the court’s ruling is that it’s going to impede us
from being able to put certain bad guys behind bars that we’ve been
able to put behind bars,” Elise Armacost, spokeswoman for the Baltimore
County Police Department, said.
