NIJ Forensics 2018: page 10 deprecates exonerations from criminal convictions aided by unvalidated methods

The US federal look on the forensic issues relating to convictions of innocent defendants is on page 10. Its mostly platitudes and clearly misdirects the reader to consider that stats used by innocence litigators are flawed. The article’s mainstays are, of course, Gould and Collins. For decades they have been the spear-chucking supporters for crime lab orgs praising their accuracies and infallibility. Bitemarks even get some praise. Ridiculous white-wash.
