  • How “science” and “justice” failed Robert Lee Stinson.Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjOFalse Positive is a documentary produced by Vox Senior Producer Joss Fong about the conviction of Robert Lee Stinson. Stinson spent 23 years in a Wisconsin prison for murder after two forensic odontologists concluded that his teeth matched bite marks found on the body of the victim. False Positive looks at the structural and cultural factors that have made the U.S. criminal justice system susceptible to unreliable forensic science, and that continue to impede progress toward more reliable methods today. This documentary was originally released as three separate episodes:Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kiw1Z...Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=beixs...Part 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1y8N...To go even deeper into the series, become a member of the Vox Video Lab, for exclusive access to a live Q&A about this story, and additional behind-the-scenes details on the series. https://www.vox.com/joinVox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

    Wow, where the actual murderer is sorry...but not the dentist and prosecutors who put false evidence in front of the judge in the first place! wow...

    Thank you for this comment. I was actually seething with anger while watching the part where the judge and the district attorney both failed to apologize, take ownership, or admit any wrongdoing. So much for being responsible role models.

    Yeah...The dentist and prosecutors should say sorry or even in jail... I'm in tears for Robert.

    These “dental experts” should be in jail. Absolutely disgusting

    The secondary expert (Raymond Rawson) whose opinion was used as verification actually has been involved in putting at least one other innocent man behind bars. That man was Ray Krone and his trial and exoneration was covered in an episode of Forensic Files, also available on youtube.

    Even more: These experts get PAID to provide evidence and consult on cases. Which means there is a huge conflict of interest. They are highly incentivized to provide strong testimonies with clear results, be it positive or negative. All the other peer expert have incentive to confirm the first expert, again to build the notion of strong clear evidence from this field of expert (Which they belong to and as long the field is considered strong evidence, consulting and testimony gigs keep rolling in). Beca...

    Absolutely absurd. To give a man 115k for 23 YEARS of the most integral point in a persons life ripped away from them. That should be the amount he gets per year he was wrongfully convicted. Not being able to see your loved ones passing or spend time growing yourself as a person, 20 is when you BEGIN life basically. Thanks so much vox for this amazing video, it's amazing quality

    Right?!?!(Edit) I just did the math, that is about... 5000 a year or $2.40/per hour

    lol this is the government we are talking about. He was lucky to get as much as he did, since most people, who get their convictions over turned, just get an apology. All that being said, probably the most logical way to calculate a monetary recompense for such an individual would be to take the average income from each year he was locked up and add it all together.

    We really need more rigorous requirements when it comes to "experts" claiming that they do "science". Experts are people, and people are egotistical morons (a species trait we need be more open about and accept). Experts need to prove their position to critical peers before being accepted as scientifically accurate; that error rate test sounds good. It's absurd that PAID legislators pursuing justice for the citizenship just let that slide as, "oh, its too much work", or "...
