Justice cannot properly be given to those in a majority gender or ethnicity that holds more protection compared to the minorities. DNA profiling can eliminate the bias in crime by giving solid evidence towards who the perpetrator is. A computer does not discrimi...

DNA evidence allows crimes to be more easily solved, including old cases. Searching a DNA database for a match at the crime scene identifies the suspect in 60% of the cases. Allowing DNA profiling during criminal cases would eliminate the current ethic and gender bias towards young black men. According to Nicole Jarworski at CBS company, "African Americans are imprisoned at over six times the rate of whites."
