bad forensic science gone wild.

The January 25 press release was very critical of the current state of what passes as forensic science in this country, and explained that,“as more than a decade of crime lab scandals have shown, forensic evidence presented in court is, at times, often bogus – based on speculative research, inadequate quality control, and subjective interpretations. Ensuring the scientific integrity of forensic evidence is essential to preventing wrongful convictions and exonerating the innocent.”

In fact, statistics have shown that in more than 50% of DNA exonerations, unvalidated or improper forensic science contributed to the wrongful conviction. One needs to look no further than the now infamous case of Fred Zain of West Virginia and later Texas to see the dangers of bad forensic science gone wild.
