Say you've got a national DNA data base from unsolved assaults, rapes, murders and from prison escapees. You've also got sophisticated hard and software that can identify DNA from individual blood cells and match it on the data base. The final link is to scour the country collecting female mosquitos
and process their "foreign" blood. Perps in hiding, could be zeroed in to within a few kilometers without the sensitive civil rights aspects of mass testing.
||For some reason, from the title I thought this had to do with getting DNA from lawyers. I was all set to give this a big croissant :)
||Doesn't this all rest on the assumption that it is
easier to find a mosquito who previously drew
blood from a criminal than it is to find the criminal
himself? I think finding the right mosquito would
be quite a bit harder than just looking for the
hiding criminal. Talk about a (winged) needle in
||course you should mr, thats the point of this place!
