The Former director of the Michigan State Police Forensic Science is blowing the lid off of shady practices.

It looks like the judicial process is not working properly, and the people that are suppose to report the facts are actually fabricating reports. The reports, if done properly would result in misdemeanors, however the tampering of reports is resulting in felonies.

A former director of Michigan State Police Forensic Science addressed the serious allegations FOX 17 uncovered, which accuse the Attorney General’s office and state prosecutors of influencing state police crime labs to falsely report marijuana; essentially turning misdemeanors into felonies.

Collins commented making some valid points. I hope more people do the right thing, because if not our justice system is no better than the criminals they prosecute.

“It was really a big deal for me to let people understand that our laboratories were not in the prosecution business, they’re not in the conviction business, they’re in the science business,” said Collins.

“And if we don’t position ourselves as being in the science business, then we really start to go down a path that’s going to lead us to a lot of trouble. And that was very tough, because that was a major cultural, a different kind of a cultural message than had really been communicated before.”

Amazing isn't it? Ridding ourselves of corruption first is the only way we can actually even begin to effectively tackle any of our other critical issues.

Who would know better than…

A former director of Michigan State Police Forensic Science…


“There is a lot of politics that is involved in these cases," said Collins.

Agenda driven attempts to circumvent marijauna laws by prosecuting trumped cases from misdemeanors to felonies?

Like this guy:

Lorincz, an Ottawa County father, is the defendant whose case FOX 17 has covered since February. Lorincz, a card-carrying patient, is charged with a felony for having a “smear” amount medical marijuana, in the form of Butane Hash Oil.

“An accreditation assessor would have a problem would probably look at this and have a problem with why would you even say anything like this?” Collins said, looking at the crime report’s phrase, “origin unknown.”

The kicker:

It has been more than 13 months since his 6-year-old son was taken from his home, in part due to this felony charge. Lorincz and his family have started a GoFundMe page to help raise money to continue fighting his case.

Make police labs indépendant of the police department (and the attorney Generals office) , like review boards for lapel and dash cams.

Information about forensics has quietly been leaking out for a couple years now, it hasn't gained much media traction though. Bottom line is, all forensic evidence should be inadmissible in court at this stage since it doesn't pass the standard of a reasonable doubt that the evidence is legit.

It's more than drug testing, things like polygraphs are no longer trusted and even DNA evidence is being shown to be well, wrong. Not only are the processes not fool proof but the prosecutors are getting involved with the analysts and putting on pressure to obtain specific results.
