Forensics: Scientific American goes after (again) Trump/Sessions dumping NCFS Commission

 

This iconic publisher of all things related to science has consistently reflected the need for advances in forensic reliability and “gap” analysis to reduce errors.  SA has republished this piece previously titled “Forensic Science Must Be Scientific.” Wrongful convictions from the bitemarkers  junk palm-reading and soothsaying starts it all off.

Note: the above courtroom image shows a bitemarker’s analyzing a ‘positive identification’ with ‘reasonable medical certainty.’ All based on a few normal teeth. The District Attorney said the “match” was “dramatic.”

Huh?

Let’s Keep the Science in Forensic Science
