Crime & Forensics

n Scary Forensic Facts Source: CNN Presents: Reasonable Doubt (documentary)

Fingerprint matching used by law enforcement is subject to human error, and can and does result in mis-identification of suspects. Most jurisdictions do NOT require that fingerprint analysts be certified. A fingerprint analyst does NOT have to be certified in order to testify as an expert in court

Only 3 states (including New York) require crime lab accreditation. In the rest of the nation, crime labs can be set-up and operated by anyone with business cards and the money for equipment. There is NO certification process in place to guarantee that lab analysts, practices and proceedures employ sound scientific methods and knowledge

Contrary to the belief of some crime labs, the science of comparing the chemical profile of bullets in order to determine specific manufacturers, manufacturer lots, dates, and boxes has been found to inaccurate and untrustworthy. The chemical composition of even a single batch of the iron used in bullets can be inconsistent. The FBI crime lab has recently stopped using this method of testing

There is NO certification process in place for hair analysts. Hair analysis is often performed by uncertified lab analysts and their results are often flawed.
