Not related to BLM or this case, but a good read. About how forensic science in the US isn’t science based. It lacks guidelines on the most basic principles (for instance how many points do fingerprints have to match).dans79 wrote: ↑Wed Jul 01, 2020 4:11 pmAs I and others have said/alluded to, that is the press and others being out of their depth, or reading/presenting what they want to.
An autopsy report written by a medical examiner or coroner is generally not written to be consumed by the general public. They are written using the appropriate medical terminology, and to be overtly thorough, because they must stand up to examination in the court of law. they can't have oopsies or oversites, they must list every possible condition/issue they can find with their patient.

Looking at the whole law enforcement in the US, you could see that it’s almost amateurish. No real training for officers (well, 12 weeks or so), no or very little accountability (written in law), no system to track “bad cops”, forensic’s without guidelines or rules and a strong union that protects those bad apples.
Compare that to others rich counties, where police is trained for at least three years, forensics are done by science and cops are fully accountable.
The ingredients of US law enforcement is a highway to disaster.
