Here’s a summary of MSM responses to the Republican establishment of a State recognized forensic science industry. Sessions appointment of an ‘advisory panel’ on police forensics will surely be a stunning array of mostly police trained flunkies.
Jeff Session wants to keep forensics in the Dark Ages – The Watch
Excerpts from Radley Balko
“But for Sessions, even tepid criticism of the tools he and other prosecutors had used for years was a threat.”
“Our adversarial system may be the best system available for assessing evidence, but it’s hostile to good science.”
“……law enforcement officials and prosecutors like Sessions have retreated to the battle lines that defined much of the last century. They’ve attacked the scientists as biased, or made bizarre arguments that forensics should be judged on principles other than scientific principles. (Before we give the Obama administration too much praise, it’s worth pointing out that after PCAST issued its damning report on forensics last year, Obama’s own attorney general Loretta Lynch immediately dismissed it.)”
