      Evidence Sceptic

      Recently in England there have been some terrible miscarriages of justice.
      Example: Mothers have been jailed in cot death and “shaken baby syndrome”
      cases based on evidence from experts, later proven to be misleading or false.

      People have been convicted based on DNA evidence,
      later shown to have been “transferred”.
      Transfer is easy with, for example, DNA evidence like a human hair.
      It is easy to move it from one location to another.
      Sometimes evidence has been corrupted while in the hands of the police.

      Different experts can give different opinions based on exactly the same evidence.
      I naively use to think that fingerprint evidence is 100% accurate
      rather than just an opinion.

      I would like the BBC to bring back the series Rough Justice.
      I remember being shocked to see how the police can get someone
      to confess to murder when they could not possibly
      have committed the crime.

      If ever I am on a jury, I would be sceptical about evidence
      being 99% certain, without hearing from another expert.
