Bad Science?

by blogger orf

There have been many complaints recently about the reliability of forensic science. In February, the National Academy of Sciences released a report that pointed out all the flaws found in the field of forensic science, particularly with those that use comparative analysis such as fingerprint analysis. DNA analysis seems to be the only widely accepted forensic science field, but it has been well funded in order to become scientifically proven.

"If we're making life-or-death decisions based on science, we better make sure the science can stand up to rigorous scrutiny," said Ben Wecht, the institute's program administrator.

At a meeting held Dusquesne University on September 11, 2009, the concerns brought up by the National Academy of Sciences were further discussed. It seems now that the only way to improve the forensic sciences is for the government to provide additional funding for testing.

That NAS reprort has some serious flaws. If anyone is interested feel free to respond and I will provide an abundance of info that makes this NAS report "a path forward" look like a research paper completed by a group of self-centerd 5th graders.

In my opinion, not only should there be more funding from the Government, private sectors, companies, and/or individuals, there should also be an overhaul of ALL sorts concerning the life/death of an individual, the guilt/innocence of a person, and justice for the cause at hand. We have learned with the advancement of technology that anything man-made can be flawed, even forensics.
