This should be required reading in forensic courses and law schools. Even if the @NDAAJustice DAs lack the academic capacity to understand some of it, they should read it too. In 22 pages, it provides a contemporary forensic history lesson, and critical thinking coaching on the definitions and details forensic science advance. It is co-equal in time and context with the NAS Report on Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States (2009) which the AAFS BOD recently reiterated its support.
