Lockheed Martin wants to make DNA scooping easier for police

Remember when we told you about how the non-proft Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) and Lockheed Martin had gotten together to publish a pretty self-serving paper describing law enforcement technology needs? Remember how during the research for that paper, Lockheed and PERF asked hundreds of police officers if having faster DNA processing would help them do their business better? Remember how we said that was a little suspicious, given that Lockheed does lots of R&D to develop products just like that?

BOOM.

Sometimes it hurts to be right.
