    and some people believe raising a child is hands on....
    some people never touch their children....
    and apparently some people are paranoid of anything that comes near.

    Idiot?....yeah sure.....the teacher should have tossed the towel to the kid.
    A word to be more careful would have been enough.

    Yes, her parents let it go, but I didn't..:)
    I felt SOMETHING should be done to nail a possible pervert teacher, so I wrote anonymously to the head teacher to tell her of the incident in the hope that she'd have a quiet word with him to put a bit of a scare into him.
    A few months later the school was closed down and turned into a community centre, but whether my letter had anything to do with it I don't know.
    As for the teacher i've got no idea what happened to him, maybe he went to another school..

    They swab everybody who is cautioned or convicted. Many rapists have been caught decades after the crime because they got caught shop-thieving or Breach-of-Peace.

    Yeah so even though the police took my DNA 12 years ago I presume it's still in a fridge somewhere, they must have ZILLIONS of peoples DNA in their fridges by now, and I'm still trying to decide if it's a good thing or not.
    I mean, if a crook leaves his DNA at a crime scene somewhere, they'd have to go through all them zillions looking for a match which could take many months or years..

    Well...I assume they search the sample from the crime scene against the catalogued DNA. It's just a string of letters, ultimately, searched by computer. No need to keep or search through actual samples.

    Cataloguing the DNA would be where the work is, I would assume.

    I hope there are no bent coppers out there who'd deliberately frame somebody by planting his DNA sample at the crime scene..

    I'd assume there are. Bent coppers have been a fact of life ever since 'coppers' were invented, and just like the methods of criminals, and the methods of justice, their methods change and adapt over time.

    Happily, there are also non-bent cops. The ratio of the one against the other is the thing we need to constantly drive in the right direction.
