2. JUNK SCIENCE

Science done right is objective, it is rational, it is an aid for discovering the truth. However, there is a great deal of what is admitted into criminal court trials that is called "science" but that doesn't pass scientific muster. Junk science was a contributing factor in 23% of all wrongful convictions.* If you are falsely accused of a crime where science is being used, don't become a statistic. Learn from the mistakes of past wrongful conviction cases and combat the junk science. 

*I use the non politically correct term "junk science". The National Registry of Exonerations uses the category "false or misleading forensics".
