I personally would not consider DNA profiling a bad thing, but the controversy is over the fact that the scientists may be dealing with the data and DNA incorrectly.


The criticisms over DNA profiling are over the interpretations by the scientists. "Especially when it involves statistical issues (including relevant areas of population genetics in the realm of statistics)." Check out this website for some more information.
