Sandy Coronilla reports:

The city of San Diego was sued in California Superior Court on Tuesday to change a San Diego Police Department policy that ACLU of San Diego & Imperial Counties said allows for DNA collection from minors without parental consent.

The incident that prompted the lawsuit involves alleged over-policing of Logan Heights, a community of color, in March 2016.

A group of teen boys were walking in a park when police unlawfully stopped and frisked them, ACLU said. The youth were then detained without a warrant and then told that they would only be released after they consented to the collection of their DNA, without parental permission.
