More input from scientists taking up the torch for better forensics

Image result for collective ass

More academic folks talking about all the reasons this blog was begun in 2014. They describe the climate and environment of the US criminal justice relationship with empirically tested science and wrongful convictions.   Apparently my concerns about low quality, yet “experienced,”  forensic opinions expressed as “certainty” is considered an endemic problem recognized by these main stream scientists.

Bravo to them.

The lawyers within the prosecutorial industries balking on this need to get their heads out of their collective ass.
