The official roll out event for Failed Evidence: Why Law Enforcement Resists Science, will take place at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York on Sept. 20, 2012 at 5:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public; see the details here.
For those looking to get a sense of what Failed Evidence is about, here’s a brief video clip prepared by NYU Press, called “The Emperor of Forensic Science Has No Clothes.” Most of us tend to think that forensic science is what makes cases these days. But aside from DNA and chemical analysis, much of forensic science is open to question.
For members of the media seeking more information, see the Media Info page of this blog. I will be available in New York from Tuesday evening, Sept. 18, through the event on Sept. 20.
