Forensic Science and Fingerprints

Image via CrunchBaseWith a new analytical technique, a fingerprint can now reveal much more than the identity of a person. It can now also identify what the person has been touching drugs, explosives or poisons, for example.Writing in Friday’s issue of the journal Science, R. Graham Cooks, a professor of chemistry at PurdueUniversity, and his colleagues describe how a laboratory technique known as mass spectrometry could find a wider application in crime investigations.The equipment to perform such tests is already commercially available, although expensive. Smaller, cheaper, portable versions are probably only a couple...

[caption id="attachment_5208" align="alignright" width="300" caption="www.OhioDUIdefense.com"][/caption]The picture is of the National Prohibition Convention held in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1892.  The party still exists although they have had to overcome some major infighting that caused many to leave the movement.  "The party's greatest success was in 1919, with the passage of the 18th Amendment to the United States Constitution. That Amendment outlawed the production, sale, transportation, import, and export of alcohol. The era during which alcohol was illegal in the USA is generally known as "Prohibition". The enactment of national prohibition took away...

MADD Want .05 (lowered) BAC Limit

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) supports legislation setting the illegal blood alcohol content (BAC) limit for adult drivers who have been previously convicted of DUI/DWI at .05 per se. This lower BAC limit shall apply to these offenders for a period of five years from date of conviction and they shall be required to provide a breath test if requested by an officer following a legal traffic stop. The preceding is taken directly from the MADD website http://www.madd.org/Media-Center/Media-Center/Official-Position-Statements/Position-Statements/Other-Related.aspx.  DUI lawyers have long been warning of the slipperly slope to probhibition.  Note the statment that the offender be...

Ohio Troopers Cheated on DUI Exam

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="200" caption="Troopers Cheated"][/caption]'The Ohio State Highway Patrol does not tolerate inappropriate behavior." Col. Richard Collins, patrol superintendent, said this in April before the patrol fired two troopers at the Sandusky post who had pulled a racist "prank."Collins should say it again — and act accordingly, now that 12 troopers, including nine from the Canton post, have been implicated in a cheating scandal. The patrol's latest problem damages its credibility even more than the April incident did.The Sandusky situation was bad enough: One trooper had dressed as Ku Klux Klansman while...

The bill would allow police to demand samples from drivers who have been convicted of driving under the influence in Ohio two or more times.Under current Ohio DUI laws a warrant must be obtained from a judge if the motorist declines to submit a blood sample. The new bill would make the blood draw a requirement even without a warrant. Opponents of the...

Beer Equals Civilization (www.WashingtonPost.com)

By George F. Will, Thursday, July 10, 2008; Page A15 Perhaps, like many sensible citizens, you read Investor's Business Daily for its sturdy common sense in defending free markets and other rational arrangements. If so, you too may have been startled recently by an astonishing statement on that newspaper's front page. It was in a report on the intention of the world's second-largest brewer, Belgium's InBev, to buy control of the third-largest, Anheuser-Busch, for $46.3 billion. The story asserted: "The [alcoholic beverage] industry's continued growth, however slight, has been a surprise to those...

MADD Is Cruel!

Recently a group of police officers entered El Camino High School in Ocenside California and announced that several popular kids had been killed over the weekend by a drunk driver.  Most students wept, some became hysterical.  The problem?  This was all a cruel hoax.  Apparently the callous school administration adopted the MADD position that no scare tactic is over the top when drunk driving is involved.  The school counselor who dreamed up this violence defended the program by saying that it had the intended impact.  This augments the decades old theatre performance...
