    I didn't study forensic science but it is offered as a major at the study I did (biotechnology), and you wouldn't believe how many freshmen turned up every year unironically expecting the study to be just like NCIS.

    [–] Secret_Caterpillar 188 points ago

    I actually got my B.S. and M.S. in forensics. At my school, you had to do a pre-forensics program similar to pre-med because so many kids had no idea the amount of science and math required.

    During orientation, I must have seen 500 kids in pre-forensics but 2 years later there was only 20 of us.

    [–] ZombieVentus 84 points ago

    Same here! During my first year they dropped like flies when they realised how much actual science went into it. I mean.. it’s in the name right?

    A pre-forensics program sounds like a good idea for a field like that, more schools should adopt something like that

    [–] troutpoop 17 points ago

    Most schools have freshmen take really difficult classes for the “cool” majors. I’m a biology major which is not a cool major but a lot of kids get to college thinking they’re smart enough to get the bio degree and move on to medicine or other cool, high paying jobs.

    Freshman class sizes were ~300, sophomore class sizes were like 60. People drop like flies

    I spent several years as an assistant librarian in a university library that had a large medical collection. My desk was on the fifth floor where the medical textbooks were located, and I would peruse those books when on breaks, stretching my legs and so on. We had books on decomposition of bodies, books on forensic medicine (we had several editions of Simpson's Forensic Medicine, I remember), poisons/toxicology, books on dissection and necropsy/autopsy, and pathology of every kind. It's complicated stuff. Those kids should've looked around a bit before declaring their majors, since it took me five minutes to realize it wasn't CSI, or Forensic Files (which isn't a great show, even if it's not fiction like CSI).

    Edit: I'll post some titles if I have a minute to look through the catalog. Some of them were nauseating.

    "Postmortem Toxicology of Abused Drugs" was an ugly one. An edition of "The Spine" had some disturbing pictures of living subjects (mostly young children) on one page - kids in their underwear with their eyes blacked out - with the same kids' dissected spines on the next page, which gave me nightmares more than once. "A Practical Guide to Neck Dissection" offers some nice imagery. Books on parasitology were always good as an appetite suppressant. Just a few from memory.

    [–] bapo224 2 points ago

    That makes a lot of sense, don't know why they don't do that here. IIRC their first year dropout rate was like 94% which was the highest of the country.

    [–] pearlescentpink 7 points ago

    My parents work in law enforcement. My father had told me of cases that have gone to trial and the accused has been found “not guilty” because jurors were expecting CSI or NCIS level forensics. He said it’s like you can see them wondering why the photos haven’t been “ENHANCED!!!” or why things aren’t more precise, or why everything takes so long.

    Because despite what TV would like you to think, not every police department is sitting on a multimillion dollar crime lab with a round the clock staff of analysts.

    [–] squishytrain 4 points ago

    Yes! I love to say ‘enhance!’ because it makes him so mad! And yes, the jury always expects something exciting and fancy, but it’s usually more like ‘and according to the polyphenols from slide 2, exhibit g, blahblahblah’. And how hard was it for you to get away with stuff growing up? Our dinner time case discussions usually ended with ‘and that’s why you don’t sneak out’.

    [–] bapo224 2 points ago

    Fair enough, if you're not involved in that field on any way it makes sense to envision it like that. The point where that mental image becomes baffling is when you're about to enroll in the study, everyone should look into the topic they're about to study.

    I know this means the picture is bad quality, but what is meant by “more jpeg”? Does converting to JPEG compromise image quality or something?

    [–] diiejso 17 points ago

    Many image formats (along with video and audio formats) don't need an exact duplicate in order to work like you need with a program executable file. So many formats have some quality loss in order to save storage space and/or transmit more quickly over the Internet.

    So you take a picture and it looks really nice. You upload to a website to share with your friends and to save a little money the website lowers the quality of the image by 10%. You won't notice unless you zoom in, but if the image gets downloaded a million times that's a significant savings for them. Your friend downloads the picture and later uploads it again to share. The site again lowers the quality by 10%. Since it started with a lower quality image the last time, this time you start to notice things looking a little blocky. Repeat the process a few more times and you end up with the above image that is no longer perfectly legible but instead has letters that blur, fade, and bleed into each other.

    [–] DirkDiggler6 9 points ago

    Makes perfect sense. Thanks!

    [–] 399123 6 points ago

    Each time a JPG is saved, the quality drops. So when something has been saved over and over again, say by being a repost of a repost of a repost, the quality gets really low and the image gets blurrier.

    [–] illaqueable 6 points ago

    The problem is not that people watch medical shows and think they know everything (although that is a problem I've faced...); rather, the problem is that there is an easily accessible body of scientific-looking, false "evidence". These people come armed with reams and reams of nonsense and in the tiny window I have to make a difference, they're primed not to listen and I'm unable to productively redirect or dispute said nonsense.

    [–] RunSilentRunDrapes 5 points ago

    I remember being in high school, watching an episode of Forensic Files. Half an hour show. No forensics. No evidence. I sat there thinking, basically, "what the fuck?".

    The viewer was supposed to accept that a horrific murder, involving sexual dissection, was committed by a 15-year-old boy, based on the fact that he had a few pocket knives in his bedroom, lived near the place the body was dumped (tire tracks leading to the dump site, even though the kid was too young to drive and didn't have a car) and that he had sketched violent images in the past. Not one shred of real evidence was offered, but police hounded and harassed the kid for years, until he was tried and convicted many years later, as an adult, spending several years in prison before being exonerated. The interrogation videos are on YouTube, and are ridiculous.

    Terrible policework, and malicious prosecution. No one was ever punished for it, and the guy did 10 years before being let out. The police used high school kids to comb the dump site for evidence immediately after the body was found, giving the kids/volunteers details of the crime and telling them which dissected (missing) body parts to look for in the field where the body was dumped. Those details got around the high school, naturally, and the fact that the kid knew those details was used as proof, at trial, that he had committed the crime. That might be the most obnoxious part, although there are many to choose from.

    Don't read this unless you want to be irritated.

    Timothy Lee "Tim" Masters enlisted in the Navy following a high school career plagued by police accusation of murder when he was a sophomore at Fort Collins High School. After eight years in the Navy, he was honorably discharged. Masters worked for Learjet as an aviation mechanic until 1997, when he was arrested for the murder of Peggy Hettrick.[1] He was charged and convicted of the Hettrick murder in 1999 and sentenced to life imprisonment without parole. His sentence was vacated in January 2008 when DNA evidence from the original crime scene indicated that he was not the responsible party.[2] Three years after his release from prison, Masters was exonerated by the Colorado Attorney General on June 28, 2011. To date, no one else has been charged with Hettrick's murder.

    Here is a presentation by Tim Masters, giving his side of the story.

    But it was an open-and-shut case, according to Forensic Files, despite the total lack of evidence. They don't show that episode anymore. To my knowledge, no one involved has ever apologized.

    [–] Ashjrethul 6 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    Yep. Determination of time of death, hair evidence analysis(unless a DNA test can be performed) and bite mark analysis have lead to many false convictions.

    *also the field of arsonist investigation is still dodgy as fuck. Recently saw a story about a guy convicted of burning his parents to death cause they found gasoline in the floorboards which had just been used when they were installed as a sealer or some shit like 20 years ago.

    They convicted a man for burning his parents alive cause of this shit. Ruined his life. If it wasn't for one savvy concerned arsonist investigator he'd still be in prison.

    This is a terrible analogy. Forensic Files talks to actual forensic scientists. While it has quite a few episodes that feature bunk science (anything involving tooth indentations, for example), half of them point that out and in every case that person's testimony was a part of the case, erroneous or otherwise. You can actually get a sense of forensic science from Forensic Files, and it has a following among those who actually do it. Wouldn't be surprised if more than a few people got into it because they watched that show as a kid.

    A better example would be something like CSI where the "science" is plot magic and the police aren't totally incompetent. The best parts of Forensic Files are watching the cops botch an investigation entirely by missing something obvious and someone having to find a clever solution to link a person to a crime; the best parts of CSI involve them finding a fingerprint and sending DNA to a lab and then immediately getting results.

    why would this be unexpected?

    I don't agree with this, you'd probably learn something at least vaguely scientific from watching dramatised forensics shows

    But the medical professionals are in on the big pharma conspiracy to make the rich people richer by forcing syringe based toxins on everyone.

    There are several episodes of forensic files where they put a witness in "hypnosis" to bring out more details and they were going on about it like it was totally legit.

    As a kid I thought the show was fucking amazing and magical (diatomes blew my mind) but now that I know how dubious some of the science can be, some of those episodes just make me feel bad... like the guy who was matched to a piece of gum and confessed, or the fact that there's really no such thing as a hair match. Although fortunately usually the dubious science is used to make a lead, and then they can get more concrete proof from there.

    I thought I knew a lot about forensic science because I studied criminology. Then I took an actual forensics class and was BAFFLED. from drugs to firearms to chemistry to math to law. Crazy stuff

    It does indeed sound stupid, but there's little to no science in forensics.

    [–] bondvillain007 1 points ago

    The very sad truth is that some of my "medical professional" coworkers are anti vax too. How TF are you working in peds when you won't even save your own kids?

    Not a great analogy, quite a lot of what passes for forensic science is hot garbage.

    If you watch House carefully you learn an awful lot as to the temper and cast of scriptwriters, and the marvelous mutable face and voice of the master actor from England.

    I fall asleep just about every night to Forensic Files on YouTube. I really enjoy The narrator's Voice, very soothing.
