    Probably more reliable than "eye witness" evidence.

    I wouldn't accuse Frontline of telling the truth, but to answer your question, "science" is as reliable as those who tell us what it is.

    Probably 2/3 reliable, which is 4-in-6 reduced.

    The science itself is "mostly" reliable; the interpretation of the data leaves a lot to be desired....

    I can only assume that many have responded and not watched the video through. It was not simply dealing with how lacking this all is when individual interpretation is involved it was showing that what they are calling science is not really science and even a judge who was made aware of this agreed.
    I have known for years about the fingerprint thing and I can tell you if I set on a jury and all they have is fingerprints I will not convict.
