Over the top proclamation of shoeprints “almost” like fingerprints

Here is another UK university paid news flash on the use of high tech instrumentation to super-image walking gaits (“unique”) and shoe prints as a “low-cost” means to associate shoes with crime scenes. They also talk about “speeding up” investigations with their methods. The promo says….

“Low cost, easy and quick”

“Much like fingerprints we all leave behind our own individual footprint.”

The research innovator hopes to take this study to the national level with police agencies.

Not a word about validity studies, etc. Just high tech acronyms. Lets slow this train down a bit, before it wrecks itself.
