Look at the ‘Individualization Fallacy in Forensic Science Evidence’ -The Classic Article

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.  

Saks and Koehler (2009) Individuation Fallacy in Forensic Science Evidence SSRN-id1432516

PS, I’m honored to have been cited in both the NAS Report_Odontology: pages 173-177 and Saks and Koehler (footnotes 77 and 88).
