Justice Denied - David Klatzow
Justice Denied by David Klatzow exposes some of the major forensic disasters that have occurred over the past 100 years. If you are accused of a crime you did not commit, do you believe that justice will prevail in a court of law? Perhaps you should think again...; An innocent woman is almost sent to prison for eight years because of a mistaken fingerprint identification by so-called forensic experts; a chicken farmer is hanged for a brutal murder he did not commit due to incorrect analysis of post-mortem bruising and a mother is sent to prison for murdering her baby daughter when a substance is falsely identified as blood. Contrary to what television series like CSI and NCIS would have one believe, forensic science does not provide instant answers to impenetrable crimes; in reality, forensic science is neither clearcut nor easy to interpret, and practitioners are not all competent – as renowned forensic scientist Dr David Klatzow proves in this book. Justice, while age-old, is not always served when bad science plays a hand.
