Spectacle: True Crime

True Crime | 11. Forensic Files, CSI and the Peddling of Junk Science

This week on Spectacle, forensic sciences. Shows like CSI or Forensic Files make us believe that fingerprints, bite marks or tool marks can close the case. But in reality, aside from DNA, none of it is legit. In fact, it’s been publicly called out by the National Academy of Sciences for lacking scientific merit but regardless, it’s still used in criminal cases around the country – leading to misleading testimony and worse, wrongful convictions. Featuring interviews with The Intercept’s Jordan Smith and Chris Fabricant of The Innocence Project.

A Neon Hum Media and Sony Music Entertainment production.
