A mighty effort by someone connected to the National Institute of Justice to blend ‘forward thinking’ about science and better crime lab management improving the reliability of criminal convictions. The author uses a blend of data that minimizes how many cases ‘clearly’ can be blamed on prosecution forensic experts.
Excuse me, but ‘clearly’ far exceeds what is claimed to exist in this opus. The bitemark discussion is a bunch of flim-flam. In multiple controlled tests, (their own), they couldn’t even reach a consensus about what a bitemark should look like. In actual casework it is clearly an “unsafe” method.
