Separation of Procedures

My good friend and former fellow student from my days at NYU, Roger Koppl, has this very nice op-ed published in today’s edition of the New York Post.  Using the injustices in the recent sham "case" of rape against three members of the Duke University Lacrosse team, Roger concludes:

The time has come to free forensic science from the pressures of
prosecutorial bias. To that end, crime labs should become independent
of police and prosecutors, and public defenders should be given greater
access to forensic advice and testing. Crime labs should be
independent, operating under the supervision of an officer of the
court, who would be responsible for assigning forensic evidence to
laboratories and ensuring that all crime labs in the system are
following proper scientific procedures.
