    Sure, they’ll test DNA of fish but not inmates

    AS A lawyer and civil rights defender, I find it sadly ironic that state officials are mulling whether to require testing the DNA of fish to prevent mislabeling ( “State moves to take action against mislabeling of fish,’’ Business, Jan. 12).

    Are these the same officials who refuse to grant inmates in the state the right to test DNA evidence to prove their innocence?

    Call me a bleeding heart, but I think we should be testing human DNA in order to prove someone’s innocence before we’re testing fish DNA to prove that the cod on my plate isn’t really frozen escolar.
