Right, Thisbe has been going through my mind since Sunday and I’m interested in the DiS view on this.
Their was a horrendous sexual assault in my hometown about 3 months ago and it is still front page news as its so Unusual to happen. The police have drawn a blank so far and have started going to any males 20-40 who have lived in the area in n the past 5 years taking fingerprints, dna, only stopping them being a suspect when they can provide an alibi as if they were a suspect.
The boys I was drinking with Sunday were all on board with this and happily went along with it - but I’ve never been asked - so it’s not everyone. Even though I’d happily go along with it bearing in mind the crime.
Is this normal? I’ve never heard of anything like this before…I thought there’d have to be a reason to suspect to collect someone’s information or am I misguided?
