Chuck Schumer Wants All Criminals To Have Dna Fingerprinting

01.12.11 | Sarah Harnisch

      New York Senator Chuck Schumer is pushing for a law that would require any criminal caught would have to have D.N.A. samples taken while their in custody. It's called D.N.A. fingerprinting, and New York doesn't have it. We also have more repeat criminals, and criminals that aren't linked with other crimes committed, because we simply didn't know they were there. Schumer told our news partner, YNN, he hopes the bill is passed in Congress and he can set up a D.N.A. fingerprinting program in the state later this year.
