Common sense dictates that our police must be solving a much higher percent of homicides today as compared to the 1960s. After all, today’s police departments have access to DNA evidence that didn’t exist during the 1960s. And police departments today can run finger prints through high tech computers and find an exact match out of 100s of millions finger prints on file. Back in the 1960s this technology did not exist.
