the question still remains though, if he was guilty, why would he VOLUNTARILY turn in a DNA sample?
That's what makes this all confusing...
Although the Article stated that Kobe voluntarily gave a DNA sample he really had no choice. They said volunarily because he was not under arrest at the time. He was asked to give a DNA sample to assist in the investigation. Had Kobe refused to do so, a warrant would have been issued and he would have been forced to give a sample. Don't read to much into that statement that he gave a Voluntary sample. It just means that he wasn't forced to give a sample at the time that he gave it.
A warrant was issued after he gave the sample anyway. Do you think an accused killer would turn over the murder weapon because he might be arrested? If he committed the act and they asked for a DNA sample, do you think he would give it over just like that? And just because a warrant is issued does not mean they can come gathering DNA, you need a court order. If he was guilty he wouldnt help the police in anyway. You dont help police build a case. Not smart. And we all agree Kobe is no dummy.
Hey Dawg, I'm on Kobe's side here. I think he's innocent like most of the peeps here do. As far as the DNA sample is concerened though you're wrong in a couple of ways. Let me break it down for you.
1. Obatining DNA evidence fall's under search and sezure laws. The
Police needed one of two things to get the DNA.
A. Kobe's concent. Which in this case they got.
B. A search warrant
. Which they would have gotten had Kobe
This is how the law works in this case.
I wasn't trying to say that Kobe was guilty or anything like that. All I was saying is that we shouldn't put to much emphases on the fact that he "voluntarily" gave a DNA sample because it really means nothing.
