FBI Crime Lab Reveals Itself to be a Major Clusterf*ck

    Sorry, but there's no other way to describe it. We were led to believe that one key lab employee was a major screwup and that appropriate actions had been taken.

    Turns out that's not true. What most people think of as the nation's premier crime lab in reality is a total disaster.

    The FBI & prosecutors failed to inform defendants, defense attorneys and courts of exculpatory evidence. Only some prosecutors were informed, and it was left to their discretion whether the exculpatory evidence was passed on.

    They also failed to reassess the work of other key lab employees whose work has been turning out to be just as bad ad the one admitted f*ck*p.

    The result potentially is hundreds of wrongfully convicted people, some of whom have rotted in prison for decades, and a least one person who was executed based on "evidence" from an FBI lab hack who probably couldn't be trusted to spell his own name.

    Washington Post:
    Convicted defendants left uninformed of forensic flaws found by Justice Dept.

    Grab a :vomit:bag on your way out the door. You'll need it for this one.

    These are the same agency of jackasses that is trying to entrap every half-witted Muslim they can ensnare -- that agency simply has no ethics, period.

    Between the FBI, the Secret Service (hooker scandal), BATF, CBP, etc., federal law enforcement has become an out-of-control, unmitigated disaster.

    Speaking of the hooker scandal, doesn't the buck stop at Nappy's desk w/r/t the Secret Service?

    Between those guys going bad and all the TSA criminals, seems like she might have a lot to answer for. Of course, it will never happen.

    I am completely fed up with government secrets. The government has absolutely no right to privacy whatsoever. The government needs to be fully accountable to the people at all times. Secret processes and limited accountability are destroying countless citizens' lives.

    Who thought giving prosecutors control of the information flow to defense attorneys was a good idea? Given prosecutors' track record for political grand-standing and manipulating public opinion to maintain their positions, these are the last people I'd trust.
