The AAAS, ACS and two other groups associated with main-stream science put in their two cents about desiring “independent and transparent” review and monitoring of police forensic research and methods.
This will largely prove futile. It is obvious that the WH wants governmental control of US forensics science to preserve its various “war on crime” philosophies. Crime lab scandals, junk forensic methods, and exaggerated police experts accuracy statements be damned.
Added: What these groups are concerned about.
An outlier crime labber, ignoring all this, says that what is needed are “more resources.”
Great example of ongoing innocence litigation exposing flawed forensic science developed and used for decades by US law enforcement and prosecutors. Hair comparison put Banarek in prison for 26 years. DNA proves conviction was false.
