The Real CSI

The other day I watched a Frontline documentary, The Real CSI, which examines all the quackery involved in forensic evidence (other than DNA). Particularly shocking was the critical look at fingerprint analysis, which is flawed and has lead to misidentifications. In spite of this, the public is still more easily persuaded by spurious physical evidence than they are by other forms of evidence.
