Forensic Science

Forensic science used in criminal trials can be surprisingly unscientific. We're so used to seeing CSI and a slew of other crime solving shows that most of us assume the evidence on which that conviction is based is scientifically accurate.

Turns out there is a lot of hocus-pocus and misrepresentation of the scientific facts in order to bolster the case against suspected wrongdoers. John Oliver has come up with a new television procedural could help change the public perception.
