+ - Serial Killer caught via family member's DNA->

darpified (698235) writes "Serial Killer caught by the use of 'familial DNA search' in California. The search was done on the felony offenders DNA database for possible family members of the individual that left DNA evidence in the 'Grim Sleeper' killings. Not that I'm defending serial murders, but this seems to be a very slippery slope when you use the felony DNA database in this manner. "California Attorney General Edmund G. Brown Jr. said California's familial DNA search program led to the identification and arrest of Franklin.

The program — which was enacted in 2008 against opposition from civil rights groups — uses the DNA of family members to find suspects in cases of great risk to the public, Brown's office said in a press release."

Who gets to define 'great risk'?"
