Forensics: False positives revealed. Fingerprint database error rates seen in close non‐matches – Koehler – 2021 – Journal of Forensic Sciences @The_AAFS

Too bad this is pay-for-view. Abstract only. Jay Koehler has a remarkable ability to record the weak underbelly of forensic claims of reliability. Fingerprinters clearly used the self-assurances of being error-free. Just like the bitemarkers of AAFS/ABFO. At least the fingerprinters are using their databases to investigate. The dentists 🦷 have never had the integrity to do the same.
