Forensic Science is Sometimes Junk Science

Great article in Newsweek about the unreliability, corruption, and plain error in forensic “science.” Many jurors – including jurors deciding criminal case in Raleigh and Wake County – believe forensic science, and are unable to determine whether forensic science is junk science or not.

From the article:

There is no “may” about it. An Idaho man was convicted of rape and murder based on shoe prints; he spent 18 years on death row. A Louisiana man was convicted of rape when a bite-mark analyst testified that he “is the person who bit this lady.” Both were exonerated by DNA.
