"There has to be some kind of probable cause and basis to believe that this person has committed a crime. Okay. And so we so the the fourth the fourth amendment is our touchstone here. So we can't just have police officers because whatever personal bias is they have arresting people disproportionately stopping them disproportionately and taking their DNA sample disproportionately often on the basis of race. Because that. Is that taking someone's DNA is a seizure under the fourth amendment? It is an intrusive invasive procedure, and it had it can only be done if it's reasonable. And if there is problem probable, cause I soon that you feel that when somebody like Fred Herron says look we asked and they say, yes. So that's consent. Do you consider that consent? There's there's there's a thousands of cases on consent that that you can review that that talk about the factual the facts surrounding typical consent. Most people when a police officer says jump they jump because they're scared. A police office is approaching you with a large gun in a command position and people are frightened. So they will they will consent to searches. They will consent to seizures because they feel like they have no choice. So I say, quote, unquote consent. But but this these are forced interactions for the most part, especially when you're dealing with youth and people of color who for because of the dynamics between African American communities and the police are often terrified of a police encounter. Let let's take a call now from Conway, South Carolina..

"Is it does give us that point? Or when we have no other clues, and then it points direction, and then we bring in traditional law enforcement techniques, the oh to kind of feel the deal and to get a conviction, and again, most of these people a lot of criminals, confess the crimes. So once you tell someone we have your DNA at this crime scene. We have your DNA, and it's mashed this believe it or not they confessed these. Grassle? Yeah. That was me. That was me. Yes. I did it briefly before relinquish you. And I know I gotta let you go run that big police force of yours. You know, there's some people who say look what we're doing is sort of backwards engineering suspect, yet take the thing. You swab it. And then you go find and see if there's something they may have done somewhere before they even charged with something. How do you address that concern? That we're taking your DNA to see if they've committed a crime yet sort of saying, well, they may not be suspects in these other things, but let's just sort of throw it out there and see what comes up. Oh, we do that every day. We're doing we're taking DNA from people that we arrest for one crime to see the hits linked to other crimes as I started off a while ago. People just don't make one crime and they're done. They're not committing a crime to pay their electric Bill because they fell the I in this month, the committing crimes for other reasons. So if we have other unsolved crimes, which we do when we finally get the suspect, and we take swab and put it into the to the rapid machine it will link to our database, and we're not talking about a code is database now we're talking about a local database it a link to that database, and it will show a hit. And we're talking about a credit labs. We use boaty technologies that alone in Virginia. Which does a lot of backlogs for many other KOTA slabs throughout the country. We're talking about ask clutch certified laboratories, not some guy that just opened up shop in his basement. We're talking about real labs with all the certification. To go along with it that everybody else uses to put into coats to begin with. All right. And you hearing there the voice of Fred Herron, director of public safety for Bensalem township police department in Pennsylvania for thanks so much for joining us today. Thank you. And now joining us from Los Angeles is Lisa holder. She's the interim legal director for the ink will Justice society in Oakland, California. She's the the Justice society, I should say is suing the state of California for collecting the DNA of people who are arrested for alleged felonies. But never convicted Lisa's also has their own private law firm and teaches police accountability at UCLA law school, Lisa holder. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for having me, David. So I want to talk to you a little bit about these. You've been hearing the issues we've been talking about today, you have concerns over DNA, and I want to get to your suit against California in a moment. But when you're listening to this conversation. What concerns what concerns arise for you? And what hopes to rise for you? Well, I'll see there. There are several concerns that are right for me. The first concern that I that I have is just the over dependence on technology in policing and the movement away from community policing..

"You to join our conversation. What questions do you have about these new rapid DNA boxes and how they're put to us? Follow us on Twitter and find us on Facebook at on point radio. We're talking with Fred Herron. He's director public safety for the Bensalem township police department that means he's the chief of police there. And we're also speaking with David k he's professor of law at Penn State, and a forensic DNA expert. I'd like to go first to call. We've got a number of people calling in on this issue. A call from Corbin Kentucky. David welcome to on point. I thank you for taking my call. I just like to say I think we should proceed with caution with this. 'cause there's already been two cases that were incorrectly done. And this is from an article that I read back in March twenty sixteen where there is a guy named KO said, we we need to urgently need to review how NA evidences, assessed Butte and described and he sided. He cited the case. Where the NA a management months in jail after his DNA was found on a murder victim having been transferred there by paramedics who took the man to a hospital before going to the murder scene and at the new Republic law, professor Aaron Murphy described how DNA transfer initially led police to an impossible suspect in the two thousand nine murder of a Yale student and he leave after her body was found in her lab. Cross base the NA and on her skin and Alan, the her hair and underwear match that of a convicted offender, but that offender had died two years earlier. Well, David, thank you. Thank you for raising those cases, and let's let's go to David Kay. You're an expert in the friends ex DNA two questions. I guess first off is how effective is DNA testing. And particularly how are the rapid DNA machines as far as we know. We'll the machines have been validated against the laboratory the gold standard laboratory tests. So the FBI has certified at least one machine for this kind of usage to applaud profiles to coaches that will naturally require that the machines be, you know, like breathalyzers you have to follow the instructions one we heard the description of taking the swab immediately from cheek as long as there's no contamination that gets on the swab things should be okay. The situation that the caller was referring to is a real situation, particularly with what can be called trace quantities of DNA very minute amounts, which could be the result of secondary transfers, it's called the case in with the paramedics who was in I sand in the San Francisco area, and that you know, can happen. So I in a rape case things around really simple. If you find semen the question is who in is it in other cases with small amounts of touch DNA, as it's also called one does have to be careful to do a correct interpretation all that the evidence can tell us is that someone's DNA got to some place. How it got there? Requires further thought, professor k very briefly I want to ask you this. We heard from Fred Herron that his cops get, you know, DNA from all kinds of places. It sounds like that some of that material is using the rapid DNA machines in preparing for today's show. The readings I felt found manufacturers were saying, hey, look, we're only testing for stuff that's gotten from the swabs. Basically immediately. How comfortable are you with the use of the machines to valuate DNA genetic material gathered from crime scenes? That is there are reports that that is being done as well. That's not what the approved systems for Kotas are approved for in terms of the uploading it to the federal vase, right? You wouldn't be uploading crime scene. Samples that way and the testing of the machines. I don't know how much they've been tested on those kinds of samples, and then you'd wanna thorough validation study which would ask with very small samples. How do they work with mixtures that might be found at crime scenes, how do they work their problems, particularly in interpreting mixed profiles from the laboratory that have caused substantial problems in different parts of the country from Washington DC to Texas leading to changes in laboratory procedures and the use of more sophisticated software in..

"Bensalem, Pennsylvania is Fred Herron. He's the director public safety, which means he's effectively the police chief for the Bensalem township police department Fred thanks for joining us today. Thanks, dave. So I wanted to ask you about the well, let's for set the scene. Let's talk about Ben Salem for just a moment. Tell us about your township. What's it like is it what kinds of crime? Do you? Do you have to address there? So just to put things in perspective Pennsylvania's about twelve hundred police department where the ninth largest police department in Pennsylvania with about one hundred four sworn officers, we border Philadelphia, most of the police farms in Pennsylvania, very small most of which fifty percent of them has left less than ten officers. So we boarder. Delfi where the first interchange on the turnpike for Philadelphia at New York City where about fifteen minutes from Trenton about in eighty minutes from New York City, and again, we actually sit on numerous fronts with the Philadelphia city as well. So it's a it's a good sized community. We have about two hundred fifty thousand people during the daytime and our residential populations about sixty four thousand we've got a lot of hotels, motels shopping centers a lot of restaurants. We're home to the second highest grossing casino and east coast United States. So it's it's a busy busy town. So what kinds of fighting there, and particularly what kinds of crime or you fighting that it makes sense to use DNA samples to try to address. So though, it's it's a good sized town. And it's it's busy like most of America. Like most of the police departments in America. Our biggest crime that we're faced with thank God. It's not the homicides in the sexual assaults is property crime. It's burglary and stuff from vehicles and stuff of vehicles and stuff from stores. Those are the. Crimes that most police departments seventeen eighteen thousand police departments in the United States. That's what most of the departments are faced with, you know, the bigger cities Philadelphia, Chicago, New York LA, Miami, though, cities, you know, they're faced with you other crimes to the homicide the sexual assault. So that's where a lot of people spending a lot of time on DNA analysis on this bigger crimes. But for me and my residents, I wanna stop and prevent the property crime. That's really what we're focusing on those crimes that affect the everyday American figuring like breaking entering stealing cars stuff like that. Correct. So tell me like give me a break down..
