Про коррупцию в ФБР

С мест сообщают:
The Washington Post published a story so horrifying this weekend that it would stop your breath: “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.” Dahlia Lithwick Dahlia Lithwick

What went wrong? The Post continues: “Of 28 examiners with the FBI Laboratory’s microscopic hair comparison unit, 26 overstated forensic matches in ways that favored prosecutors in more than 95 percent of the 268 trials reviewed so far.” The shameful, horrifying errors were uncovered in a massive, three-year review by the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Innocence Project. Following revelations published in recent years, the two groups are helping the government with the country’s largest ever post-conviction review of questioned forensic evidence.
Pseudoscience in the Witness Box

Для малограмотных: ФБР на протяжении 20 лет фальсифицировало результаты экспертиз.
По результатам сажали невиновных - только приведённых в исполнение смертных приговоров 30 штук.
Результаты экспертиз сфальсифицированы в 95% случаев.

Нетрудно догадаться, что творится в обычных полицейских околотках.
Ну, где ситуация контролируется значительно слабее, чем в ФБР.

Но так-то мы знаем, что коррупция, жулики и воры - строго в России.
