The Child Cases: Lessons From Canada
I have had this article on the back burners since the weekend, because I couldn’t decide on how I wanted to portray it.  Mostly I wanted to post it to show that real journalism still exists and not just this punditry that has seemed to cloak the media.  But the more I let this article bounce around in my head, I have realized that it does not do it justice. 
The article takes a look at how prosecutors and pathologists have used the power of being an “expert” to wrongly convict several parents in the deaths of their children.  I would do the article an injustice by trying to paraphrase it more, but I would still like to say it’s worth the read and their are several reforms that the US could take away from this article that would prevent unjust convictions to parents.
