series 1 American Academy of Forensic Sciences and Jonbenet

Post by redpill on Mon Aug 31, 2015 8:08 pm

the scientific consensus on the trace evidence in the Jonbent Ramsey murder mystery as referenced by Mary Lacy, Stan Garnett, and Mark Bennett is cleary intruder theory. RDI theories have been debunked on scientific grounds.

RDI who say otherwise are denialists.

When considering the RDI "evaluation" of the scientific trace evidence found at the crime scene, first consider this criteria

Pursuant to Rule 104(a), in Daubert the U.S. Supreme Court suggested that the following factors be considered:[26]

   Has the technique been tested in actual field conditions (and not just in a laboratory)? [e.g. fingerprinting has been extensively tested and verified not only in laboratory conditions, but even in actual criminal cases. So it is admissible. Polygraphy on the other hand has been well tested in laboratories but not so well tested in field conditions]
   Has the technique been subject to peer review and publication?
   What is the known or potential rate of error?
   Do standards exist for the control of the technique's operation? [e.g. the use of penile plethysmography for sex offender risk assessment is being used by different workers according to their own standards. Thus penile plethysmography does not meet Daubert criteria]
   Has the technique been generally accepted within the relevant scientific community? [this test was earlier the only relevant criterion under Frye]

when it comes to forensic trace evidence, the standards and validating community is the American Academy of Forensic Sciences.

The American Academy of Forensic Sciences is a multi-disciplinary professional organization that provides leadership to advance science and its application to the legal system. The objectives of the Academy are to promote professionalism, integrity, competency, education, foster research, improve practice, and encourage collaboration in the forensic sciences.

one of the membership organization that educations and qualifies criminalists is

American Board of Criminalistics

describes the eligibility here

DIPLOMATE

   Education
   Applicant must possess a minimum of an earned baccalaureate degree, or equivalent, in a natural science or an appropriately related field from an accredited institution. Accredited institutions are those approved by regional accrediting commissions recognized by the U.S. Office of Education or foreign equivalent, and other institutions approved by the American Board of Criminalistics Board of Directors. At its discretion, the Board through its Credentials Committee may request documentation which certifies compliance with this requirement.
   Professional Experience and Training
   Applicant must possess a minimum of two years full-time experience (including on-the-job training) and be actively working in Criminalistics.

   Qualifying activities may include casework, teaching at the post-secondary level, research, supervision, and management. If taking one of the specialized ABC examinations, the experience should be in that particular field.

FELLOW

   Fulfill all requirements for Diplomate status.
   Be able to document current successful participation in an approved proficiency testing program in either the designated specialty areas or in any area of forensic science for the Comprehensive Criminalistics Examination.

AFFILIATE

   Education
   Applicant must possess a minimum of an earned baccalaureate degree, or equivalent, in a natural science or an appropriately related field from an accredited institution. (Exception: A student graduating at the end of the semester or trimester may sit for the examination if a letter from their professor is provided verifying their graduation status.) Accredited institutions are those approved by regional accrediting commissions recognized by the U.S. Office of Education or foreign equivalent, and other institutions approved by the American Board of Criminalistics Board of Directors. At its discretion, the Board through its Credentials Committee may request documentation which certifies compliance with this requirement.
   Affiliates are not certified. Affiliates are certification eligible. Certification only occurs after an Affiliate files an ABC Request For Promotion From Affiliate To Diplomate (form ABC 166) and the Registrar is notified of its approval by the Credentials Committee.

when you see an RDI whether its forumsforjustice or websleuth or topix or reddit or crimeshots, or authors like David Hughes or detectives like Steve Thomas, ask,

have they been qualified as a criminalistics trace evidence analysis and crime scene reconstruction ? have they undergone the training ?

the answer is ofc no. they have not. whether it is tricia griffith or cynic or cherokee or ukguy

they have never studied not once ever the science of crime scene reconstruction.

their opinions as to guilt therefore has zero scientific weight.

Mary Lacy exoneration letter is simply reported the conclusions of a forensic crime lab report prepared by criministics who use scientific methodology and training to arrive at their conclusion.

essentially you are wasting your time reading RDI anti-science nonsense of amateurs who have never bothered to do the most rudimentary research into the science of forensics.

it would be like asking amateurs who have never studied medicine, to offer a medical diagnosis and treatment plan on obscure medical problems
