Re: “Sympathy for the devil

This article overlooks several problems and simple solutions.

The first problem is wrongful convictions. There are two reasons for this. Both adults and children can lie about abuse and molestation. The legal system is biased in favor of accepting lies as the truth. I lived in Arkansas at one time and succeeded in getting a law enacted that established criminal penalties for filing a false child abuse allegation, which is a common practice in divorces. When I last checked, it had never been used in any case.

The second problem is that Prosecutors have knowingly pursued false convictions in child sex allegation cases to enhance their image. I served as an expert witness in such cases and know of one case in which the Prosecutor, after agreeing to accept the results of a polygraph, refused to accept the polygraph results that the person was innocent of the allegations. Also in one case, after the accused documented his activities for the entire time period specified in the charges which proved that he was not present at the times of the alleged offenses, the prosecutor assembled all the juvenile accusers in a closed door meeting. All of them subsequently amended their allegations to specify molestation events that covered a time period including two weeks after the accused was arrested. For both events, the accused individual is now on the Arkansas Registry and accurately maintaining their innocence. For such people to improve their chances of "therapy" success and classification advancement, they would have to commit perjury and show remorse for events that never occurred. How does creating such false realities benefit anyone?

As for solutions, the high error rate in the judicial system is a product of law enforcement using contrary hypotheses testing for evidence analysis, which has an inherently high error rate. The evidence analysis rate can be reduced to nearly zero by switching to the use of contradictory hypotheses testing.

No one should be making subjective decisions in the assessment process. The current "science" they have to rely upon is corrupted by organized crime and organized science fraud. For elaboration, see the Congressional Evidence Book COMPENDIUM OF DOCUMENTATION OF ORGANIZED CRIME METHODS AND PROCEDURES INTEGRATED INTO STATE AND FEDERAL AGENCIES FOR THE PURPOSE OF POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC EXPLOITATION OF CHILDREN AND FAMILIES THROUGH STATE AND FEDERAL CHILD PROTECTION, MENTAL HEALTH, AND SOCIAL WORK SYSTEMS. Google the title, it is available on the internet. The assessment process should only be using science that meets the standards set forth in the United States Supreme Court Decision Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, 509 U.S. 579 (1993) and avoids the same deceptive trade practices problems associated with the MMPI-2 (Federal Trade Commission law enforcement Consumer Sentinel website, Announcement Reference Number 29080333).

I commend Mr. Koon for bringing some light to this dark area no one wants to examine too closely.
