Today, the Texas Forensic Science Commission hears more testimony from bitemark identification skeptics (who isn’t?) and the remnants of the AAFS sponsored American Board of Odontology who continue to obfuscate to legitimate questions from the Commission with a grab-bag of promises, vapid excuses and arrogant professional elitism.

A quote from Profesor Denton.
“Do not believe what you see on the popular TV shows,” Denton said. “Many areas of forensic science are unfortunately still a long way from being truly scientific.”
