Government at it's best...and these are the people that can control your freedom(or think they can and should anyway)...way to go Chris Coleman!

If you want to get normally mild-mannered scientists to yell at you, use the word "proves" in a scientific discussion.

Also, between the failure to use blanks, an insufficient library of illicit drugs, and failure to use proper safety equipment, I'm not sure what's worse. In my lab, any one of the three will get you either fired or completely retrained.

Lastly, if you want to denigrate government, you should also include a list of the crime labs that aren't on the news because they're doing a good job. Start typing now and let me know when you get tired.

..."you should also include a list of the crime labs that aren't on the news because they're doing a good job"...how would one know they are doing a good job? "not being on the news" is not proof...do you work for that lab?

fatredneck: Traub and Funk work for the state as Public Defenders so this is actually an indication of government working. The checks and balances of the system and advocacy of the accused led to the questions that exposed the problems in a city lab. Good job ladies.
