Wrongful Convictions and Flawed Forensic Science

Jonathan Schuppe, NBC News reporter focused on criminal justice, discusses how the justice system ignores science in pursuit of convictions."There are basically two categories of forensic science that have come under question. The more controversial ones are bite marks and blood spatter, then there are more common ones like ballistics, shoe prints and finger prints." — Brian Lehrer Show (@BrianLehrer) February 12, 2019
