The person responsible for robbing my nephew is currently in jail. My nephew's blood is on this person's hoodie from the robbery. I feel the township police are negligent because when they asked my nephew how he could prove this was the person, my nephew told them to test the blood on the hoodie for my nephew's dna to which the police responded "that costs too much money"
They HAVE the guy who did it and he's in jail but they are not convinced that my nephew is telling them the truth. This guy also has marijuana on him and he's currently in jail with a bail of 25,000. My concern is they will release the culprit from jail and give him his hoodie and the blood will be washed out and there goes the evidence. The attitude of the police is what I find so disturbing-shouldn't they have already tested that hoodie for my nephew's dna even though they have arrested the culprit and put him in jail?
He did identify the guy as the attacker and the police asked him how he
could be so sure and THAT is when my nephew told all they had to do
was test the blood on the guy's hoodie and it was at that time that the
police told my nephew that they don't have the money to do dna testing
THAT attitude of the police is what I feel is negligent so my question is would it
be worthwhile to pursue it against the police department for being negligent in'this matter?
