Ohio bill requires DNA samples in felony arrests

Published: Thu, March 25, 2010 @ 9:30 a.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio lawmakers have approved a crime-fighting measure requiring the collection of DNA genetic evidence from anyone arrested on a felony charge.

The measure approved Wednesday now goes to Gov. Ted Strickland for his consideration. The bill also opens DNA testing to parolees.

Another provision is meant to ensure unbiased police lineups by making sure the officer in charge doesn’t know who the suspect is.

Expedited executions in death sentences should have been a part of this bill . Six months to appeal and if the appeal is turned down then execute within the following six months with one appeal hearing per each convict . We are wasting far too much tax money on these killers . To execute decades into the future is turning the death sentence into a joke . Executions should be done while the public still has a fresh memory of the crime .

I disagree Stan- but only because we have had too many cases where they figure out years later they arrested an innocent man. In order to speed up the death penalty, we also need to speed up the appeals process. I hate feeding and clothing the obviously guilty ones as much as you do but the appeals process has kept a few from dying for a crime they didnt commit.
