Crime lab investigation

Prof David Wilson"Very few of us have bothered to question what forensic science is, or looked at how and when scientific principles come to be applied within the criminal justice and legal systems, to try to understand what it can, or cannot, do… I sense a desperation by some forensic scientists who seem to want to maintain a 'zero error' pretence about their discipline, which simply cannot be sustained in the face of mounting evidence." —David Wilson, professor of criminology at UCE Birmingham
