Too bad people who don't trust the government are called conspiracy theorists.

 

The admissions mark a watershed in one of the country’s largest forensic scandals, highlighting the failure of the nation’s courts for decades to keep bogus scientific information from juries, legal analysts said. The question now, they said, is how state authorities and the courts will respond to findings that confirm long-suspected problems with subjective, pattern-based forensic techniques — like hair and bite-mark comparisons — that have contributed to wrongful convictions in more than one-quarter of 329 DNA-exoneration cases since 1989.

Science.  It's never wrong.  Or so they say.

 

And if you deny science; you're an idiot conspiracy theorist.  

 

Group think!  Much better for your place in society.

Very seldom is the science wrong.  It's usually a fault with the chain of custody or incompetent technicians.  I certainly would not like my life or freedom dependent on one drug, blood or DNA test.

It's the social "science" that's most flawed.
