Making American Safer One Bite at a Time? – Media strikes at #AAFS2017 #AAFS

The Watch

Here’s another counterpoint to the few bitemarkers still standing (most likely around one to two dozen ppl in total) trying to re-brand their position as being forensically credible at the annual meeting of the “influential” American Academy of Forensic Sciences meeting.

This new post from the Washington Post’s THE WATCH gets its licks in as Radley Balko puts things in perspective for my beleaguered ex-buds.

Excerpt:

Meanwhile, prosecutors continue to utilize it, and the professional organization that “certifies” bite mark analysts just lowered its standards on what’s required to obtain those credentials.

Keith Harward, at least, is having none of it.

Harward said, “There’s a lot of infighting amongst y’all people right now. And what’s the question? Just stop it. Just don’t do it anymore. Then there’s no chance of making any mistakes.”
