We Don't Need No Stinking... Forensic Science Commission. The people require independent research.

Junked by the Justice Department as not necessary. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has announced the discontinuance of the National Commission on Forensic Science. The group is an independent panel of experts chartered to raise evidentiary standards in criminal cases.

Sessions also announced the suspension of a review of FBI testimony about forensic techniques. An internal Justice Department review now will evaluate those techniques.

Prosecutors praised the change. Others call it a retreat from best practices. Sessions orders Justice Dept. to end forensic science commission, suspend review policy
