Louis Wein on Crime


Voted YES on requiring DNA testing in every death penalty case.

If the Senate were to vote on a bill that required DNA testing in every murder/homicide would you support such a measure in order to alleviate wrongful death sentences?

Wein says, "This is only if we are speaking of federal capital crimes. I do not believe the Constitution of the United States allows the federal government to dictate state law."
