Never did trust the FBI!
« on: April 20, 2015, 01:01:03 PM »
FBI admits flaws in hair analysis over decades

Quote
The Justice Department and FBI have formally acknowledged that nearly every examiner in an elite FBI forensic unit gave flawed testimony in almost all trials in which they offered evidence against criminal defendants over more than a two-decade period before 2000.

In all fairness to the FBI, it's not easy for the US to maintain the highest documented incarceration rate in the world. I mean, shit, you try keeping 2 million (or roughly 700/100,000) people locked up without fomenting a revolution. It ain't easy, bro. Now, compound that problem with increasing proportional taxpayer costs for prisoners while simultaneously privatizing profits from the criminal justice system and you can see why the US can't be super-picky about who it convicts or on what evidence. I mean, c'mon: do you want justice or money?

This is nothing compared with the statistical errors inherent in finger print matching.

Quote
the case of Brandon Mayfield, an Oregon attorney and Muslim convert who was held for two weeks as a material witness in the Madrid bombing of March 11, 2004, a terrorist attack in which 191 people were killed. Mayfield, who claimed not to have left the United States in ten years and did not have a passport, was implicated in this attack almost solely on the basis of a latent fingerprint.

Quote
Unable to identify the source of the print, the
Spanish National Police emailed it to other police agencies. Federal Bureau
of Investigation (FBI) Senior Fingerprint Examiner Terry Green identified
Mayfield as the source of the latent print.

The government's affidavit stated that Green "considers the match
to be a 100% identification" of Mayfield. Green's identification was
"verified" by Supervisory Fingerprint Specialist Michael Wieners, Unit
Chief, Latent Print Unit and fingerprint examiner John T. Massey, a retired
FBI fingerprint examiner with over thirty years of experience.

Quote
Kenneth Moses, a well-known independent fingerprint examiner
widely considered a leader in the profession, subsequently testified in a
closed hearing that, although the comparison was "quite difficult," the
Madrid print "is the left index finger of Mr. Mayfield". A few weeks later
the FBI retracted the identification altogether and issued a rare apology to
Mayfield. The Spanish National Police had attributed the latent print to
Ouhnane Daoud, an Algerian national living in Spain.
