Excellent coverage on Forensic Science Reform battling it out at #AAFS2016

Some were glad, others were sad, and others were mad at this year’s AAFS. A few were defensive.

These two veteran investigative reporters for The Intercept, Liliana Segura and Jordan Smith, entered the annual realm of the “crime fighting” American Academy of Forensics Sciences and came away with some impressions. They found that emotions are flowing for many experts of the “old police” sciences. They roasted a few folks deserving of it, but gave kudos to those who are taking the higher road towards protecting the public from specious “forensic” types.
