...THE DA IS NOW DEMANDING PITTSBURGH POLICE FOLLOW A PREAPPROVAL PROCESS THROUGH PROSECUTORS FOR CERTAIN FELONY WARRANTS. SAYING "THE WARRANT OFFICE IS TO FORWARD ALL FELONY WARRANT REQUESTS THAT RELY PRIMARILY ON AN UNKNOWN PERPETRATOR EYEWITNESSNESS IDENTIFICATION. I THINK IT'S HUGE.

WALKER SAYS INVESTIGATIONS BASED SOLELY ON EYEWITNESSS CAN SKEW THE CASE DOWN ONE DIRECTION. NEGLECTING OTHER POSSIBLE ANGLES AND FACTORS. THEY'RE DEALING WITH THE TIME, HOW THEY SAW HIM, DO THEY KNOW THAT PERSON, IS IT A CROSS RACIAL OR CROSS GENDER IDENTIFICATION. THIS ISN'T THE FIRST TIME THE D A PRESSED TOP POLICE LEADERS TO STEP UP THEIR EFFORTS AFTER DOESWELL WAS FRIDAY, ZAPPALA SENT A LETTER DATED AUGUST 2005 TO THE PRESIDENTS OF THE CHIEFS OF POLICE ENCOURAGING THEM TO ADOPT UPDATED STANDARDS FOR EYEWITNESS IDENTIFICATION. SO WHAT DO PITTSBURGH POLICE HAVE TO TO SAY? REQUEST BUT RELEASED A STATEMENT SAYING THE CITY IS PART OF A GROUP THAT INCLUDES THE D A 's OFFICE THAT HAS BEEN MEETING REGULARLY TO DEVICE NEW GUIDELINES. THEY'RE STILL IN A DRAFT STAGE. WHEN FINALIZED, WE WILL CONSIDER THEM. FEDERAL LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST POLICE LAST WEEK. A REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL IN THE AREA SAYS HE WAS ARRESTED BASED SOLELY ON A FAULTY"
