This is what they need to do for everyone, then they can start concentrating on what matters most – corpse identification.
And we sink further and further into the police state: where the police aren’t there to PROTECT us, but instead are there to PUNISH us on behalf of the state.
DALLAS – Prostitutes in Dallas can soon submit their DNA to a database in case they become victims of violent crime.
Dallas police Lt. Christina Smith said the collection could start soon after the next roundup of area prostitutes area in three weeks.
Dallas police and other local authorities have garnered national attention for their prostitution diversion initiative, which rounds up prostitutes in the area and gives them the option of rehabilitation instead of jail time.
Prostitutes would submit DNA samples voluntarily.
Dallas police say prostitutes are much more likely to be victims of violent crimes than the general public. The new DNA database would help identify prostitutes whose bodies might turn up at a crime scene.
Maythia Hicks, who spent 20 years as a prostitute, said the dangers of prostitution are rampant.
“It’s a big problem because you never know what you’re going to run across out there,” Hicks said. “You’ve got crazy people out there.”
