Is CSI real?

On PBS’s Frontline last night they looked at the science, or lack thereof, in forensic science. The most shocking to me was finding out that fingerprints are based on faith and not science much of the time.  Not to mention the fact that anyone can get a forensic credential online.  This is extremely shocking especially in light of the Michael Morton case.

Watch it here, The Real CSI.

Grits has more.
