Sessions rolls back forensic science independence

April 11, 2017

AG Sessions closes commission on review of forensic science. Washington Post reports this dreadful move.

This quote sums the position up:-

In suspending reviews of past testimony and the development of standards for future reporting, “the department has literally decided to suspend the search for the truth,” said Peter S. Neufeld, co-founder of the Innocence Project, which has reported that nearly half of 349 DNA exonerations involved misapplications of forensic science. “As a consequence innocent people will languish in prison or, God forbid, could be executed,” he said.
