Forensics: The psych dissonance of the bitemarkers of the #AAFS. Thanks to @maxmhouck

Ditto from me.

“We conclude by noting that the resistance to scientific challenge by the forensic odontologists in their editorial reflects the rear-guard defensiveness displayed by other forensic analysts and unprogressive prosecutors.”

“The illogical defense of bite mark analysis by forensic odontologists is explained in social psychological terms of organizational deviance, groupthink, cognitive dissonance, cognitive bias, and evolutionary theory of reasoning.”
