    Honestly, I think expanding DNA collection is just a vote for greater empiricism. Anything that moves criminal justice more toward hard evidence and away from subjective, impressionistic or circumstantial testimony is a move in the right direction.

    Slippery slope protestations feel awfully luxurious here, when what's at stake can be life imprisonment or execution because you were black in the wrong part of town.

    More science, please.
