New DC Crime lab management, mayor and DA adopt measures their previously fired director were denied

The story is typical. Government politics always has a sunny side when those triumphant over their opposition adopt upgrades and staffing they had refused to allow the previous admin.

Not unlike the Romans proclaiming a peace settlement with the Visigoths after having conquered them.

The PR department for DC Depart of Public Safety (DPS) just ran out a report on how well the “reconstructed after many mistakes” and now “less” independent crime lab is doing since the DC mayor and District attorney canned its director and legal counsel earlier this year. Lets not get into who the DA’s girlfriend works for.

According to the DPS ex-crime lab director, Max Houck, the victors are weaving a web of smoke and  re-written history.

“DFS was installing same LIMS for DNA before the firings; Mgt asked MB for additional $ and staff; refused. Why now?” @maxmhouck.
