OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma House has overwhelmingly defeated legislation that would authorize officials to take DNA samples from suspects accused of felonies and violent misdemeanors before they go to trial.

The House voted 82-14 Thursday to kill the bill after opponents said it eroded the rights of individuals who may be innocent of the accusation against them.

DNA upon Arrest
BAD IDEA!
HB 2751 now HB 2941
By Rep. Lee “I Feel” Denney

“I felt like if we could get their DNA upon arrest and they commit serial crimes we could catch them faster” Says Rep. Lee Denney.

This is an outrage!

Rep. Lee Denney has no concept of presumption of innocence and no respect for the fundamental precepts of individual liberty that our nation was founded upon!

I nominate her the honorary Communitarian of the Year Award for her utilitarian approach to criminal justice.

The ENDS DO NOT JUSTIFY THE MEANS Rep. Denney-wrong country!
