Forensic science used in criminal trials can be surprisingly unscientific. Maybe a new television procedural could help change the public perception. Connect with Last Week Tonight online...

So, I'm guessing the twins and the pony are the ones who testified in court. The pony seems honest and the twins strike me as the types to get a confession on their talkboy.

Just so you know Trill is a term used in guitar playing. Not sure if for any other instrument. but its when you hammer on and pull off repeatedly.

The CSI crap shows were initially created by Jerry Bruckheimer. If the name Bruckheimer doesn't clue you in that the shows are based on bullshit and brain numbing stupidity, then what would? CSI, where the science bullshit is so huge, they make Star Wars look like a scientific accurate astronomy documentary.

Fingerprints and lie detector tests are not that 100% telling as people expect it to be. Brazil has one of the worlds most advanced fingerprint systems; Whereas in the US a fingerprint has to have 6 or 8 point matches to be considered evidence in a case, Brazil has rules that state that atleast 16 point matches has to be identical before one can conclude they are a match. Afaik (numbers might be a bit off but in general it's something like that).

Omg, I audibly gasped when he said 9 defendants executed were done so with faulty forensic evidence. This is why the death penalty should be taken off the table --- I don't even have to bring up any sort of moral argument; mistakes have been made. Innocent people have been executed and you can't take that shit back. It's too big of a risk.

In my humble opinion, the overriding reason that bite mark "evidence" will probably remain admissible is that, if they disallowed it, ANYONE EVER convicted who's case even REMOTELY involved it would then (in theory, anyway) deserved a new trial. Also, if people in this TV / internet age STILL don't understand that 1) The job of police is to find a viable candidate whom the prosecutor can take to court, and 2) The prosecutor's job is TO CONVICT PEOPLE!, then people are really, really - no, I mean REALLY - stupid. Oh well. I don't suppose I should be surprised; after all, the average American still accepts it as a notable fact when - with a completely straight face - the news anchor reports that the military is in favor of a military solution to, well, PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING!!! Besides, the people WANT bite mark evidence. They're the same people who digest tons of "murder porn," never ever questioning a single, solitary bit of it. If it was on Forensic Files, then it MUST be legit, right!?! Rikki Tikki.

"Reasonable Degree of Scientific Certainty" is a legal term, not a scientific one. Basically, it means "do you, as a scientist, feel comfortable making this statement?". But regardless, crime shows definitely over simplify/mystify the actual analysis, simply because the actual process (UV Vis, spectroscopy) is too long or boring.

using hair samples to identify suspects shouldnt be used as direct evidence, but pointers. like a camera getting a view of a masked assailant, and extracting an estimated height of 170 - 190 cm, should help exclude potential suspects outside that frame

"Now that sounds impressive matching a killer's teeth to a bite mark in a bologna sandwich although you should know that the defendant in that case got a new trial after an autopsy report found that the murder victim had actually eaten a small amount of bologna consistent with the amount bitten off the sandwich, so that sandwhich was irrelevant to the case. In fact, you could even argue that it was actually doctor West who was full off, say it with me... sh!t" Genius!

Texas had put 563 to death since 1976. Not surprising that they were the first to pass Junk Science legislation. Virginia comes in second at 112. They don't care about murdering innocent people. They care about losing wrongful death suits.

I want to be for the death penalty but if even ONE innocent person can be put to death then how can anyone support it? Who could possibly say it's acceptable for the government to be knowingly killing innocent people? They don't know WHO is innocent but they know SOME of them are... Is it really ok to murder an innocent person just to make sure we executed some of the bad one's too? I propose it is not. If the system has flaws and if it can be wrong, then death should be off the table. I find it hard to believe that anyone would believe otherwise.

Smartz118 (1 месяц назад)
I know this old, but hear me out, as a person who studied forensic science. The science itself is accurate. The mechanisms and statistics behind them are irrefutable. It is the PEOPLE who err. Like layman witnesses, the credibility of a scientific expert is important, but it is even more so because their JOBS and REPUTATION as a fact finder and truth teller is at stake. This is no exaggeration. Unfortunately, the fact that the court system is of a competing nature (winning vs. losing), truth and facts can be twisted to help either the prosecution or defense. Whether you work for the government or not, do not forget that the truth is not biased, you cannot take sides. The point of the justice system is to make sure the innocent do not get wrongfully convicted and the actual guilty party/parties is punished, but many people forget that in order to satisfy their desire to be "right".

I'm not American, but I always assumed it was standard in any civilised country that a prisoner's case would get reviewed if a scientific process used to convict them is later found to be faulty. Why does the prisoner even have to request it, and why the hell is it a new thing only being done in one state? Does anyone know what similar laws exist in other countries?
Gallonz ofFun (1 месяц назад)
I just had to take a forensic psychology course to graduate, and this is right on the nose. Fun fact only about 10% of criminal cases involve forensic evidence and of those only about 45-59% of the forensic evidence is ever analyzed. Meaning only about 5-6% of criminal cases actually collect and analyze forensic evidence. This is because no department has the money at there disposal for this, what you see in CSI costs Millions of dollars just for one department.

Doing a combustion analysis we can extract the CO2 and H2O and get the empirical formula for a compound by converting it to moles and weighing the leftovers. We can do a molecular interpretation of the amount of combustion in a can using Boyle's Law. We can hook up fuel cells to a house and car and save the planet. Or, we can make our own soda using a Henley's manual. PH balance? Never heard of it. We can invent things like gunpowder and separate the elements. We rely heavily on extractive metallurgy. Once separated from the gangue the metals must be extracted through calcination, leaching, electrolysis or sintering and new alloys must be established. I don't know what those are. Do you "Bill Murray?" Well, I'm not a scientist. I'm an amateur metalsmith and independent researcher, but...I think the court system generally has no idea at all how these function. Do they swab your cheek and check for DNA and fingerprints? Yes. But agitating and extracting that strand from a cell seems pretty tricky to me and it's packed in there mathematically. Is this a government contractors bill?

Goodly Vibes To answer your question, Trill is an alien species from Star Trek that sometimes enters a parasitic relationship with a sentient slug, which takes over their body, but is considered a great cultural honor. So when people say something is trill, they're saying that it's bad for them, but they love it. Chocolate cake is trill.

How bizarre that so many innocent people are executed by such a low standard of proof and the death penalty remains when every civilised country outlawed it decades ago. Why do people in America keep saying its the best, number 1 country in the world!?!? 40 million in poverty, colossal debt, barely no democracy or healthcare and a very flawed capital punishment bill! Its number 12 or 13 all things considered. Certainly a long way behind most European countries.

J.Oliver never fails to bring up an important issue. All around the world people are condemned by faulty science,sometimes on purpose faulty (as in the case of young "anarchists" (young people who are still alive inside and want to shape the society they will live in). Scientists should devise strict guidelines (and ethics) to promote not just transparency ,but including the obligation to reveal at all such circumstances (like the courts )the extend of the doubt that is inherent in all science,especially in settings where the lives of people depend on the scientists words/presentation of facts and results. The "Scientific Method" is nice for validation ,but this doesnt make it a method of producing unmistakable results. Whoever talks to you about 100% certainty , is not a scientist. Moreover he/she is a danger to society and life
