A confident eyewitness could still be wrong

Have you ever heard that people's memories change over time? It's true. You probably think that every memory you have is accurate, assuming that the only problem is when you can't remember something at all. The science tells us that some of your memories are probably false, though, no matter how real they seem.

Much of forensic science isn’t very scientific

If you’ve ever watched “CSI” or any similar drama, you likely know that forensic evidence analysis is a sophisticated science that produces iron-clad results. Unfortunately, that conclusion is completely wrong. Many forensic tests that have been used for years are not very reliable, and some are so bad that they can’t honestly be called scientific.

Florida doctor accused of fatal hit-and-run

A man walking home from work one night in Vero Beach, Florida was struck and hit by a doctor on her way home from the office. Unfortunately, the details of what happened that night needed to be sifted through by a jury who ultimately found the doctor guilty for not stopping to render aid. The female doctor claimed she was unaware that she had hit a person, and thought it was only a traffic sign. However, when jury members saw photos of the vehicle post-accident, it was apparent that a human body was struck with the blood and bone fragments left on the vehicle.
