While Trump profits: Trickle-down budget cuts hampers forensic lab development

New Montana state crime lab, morgue, could get axed under budget proposal

Expect alot more of this. The Feds and GOP harp on “crime waves” in the US (which isn’t true), yet the crime lab system scrounges for funding for personnel, equipment and OT. Couple that with increased incarceration policies (2.3 million currently in custody) no wonder there are wrongful convictions from flawed forensic methods. DOJ Sessions says all is well, however.
