Please Don't Cite Me

In Maryland v. King, the recent SCOTUS decision regarding DNA sampling of arrestees, Justice Kennedy quoted a book called 'Actual Innocence' for support. 'Actual Innocence' was written by the founders of the Innocence Project. But, in this case, the authors of the book are not happy because Kennedy took the quote out of context. Kennedy made it appear as if the founders of the Innocence Project support the DNA sampling of people upon arrest, but they do not.

NYTimes -- Cited by a Justice, but Feeling Less Than Honored
