Not Like the CSI Shows

This is an absolutely appalling story about a crime lab in North Carolina whose evidence has been called into question.  Many cases are involved, including 7 death row cases, of which 3 have already resulted in executions.

We need to face up to the fact that innocent people have died in our justice system - for an example see the Todd Cameron Willingham case in Texas.  Given this, the fact that the death penalty is applied in a racist and classist fashion, and that death row is incredibly expensive, the death penalty should be abolished.
