I’m wondering if a “scientific” american might be considered un-patriotic by some in the Beltway micro-climate. The US Attorney General likes the word “anecdotal” to describe CJ social science looking at police behavior. One problem is that he dry-labbed the reports without reading them. That would get him an F in critical thinking, but an A for prosecutorial advocacy.
This ‘conviction’ court room rationale might seem legit to some in police forensics like Sessions, but in the realms the National Academy of Science, as mentioned in the following piece, its nothing but obfuscating non-scientific camoflage.
