Did They Ban An Innocent Man?
Ross Tucker: “The second test should at the very least support the first. It didn’t. That alone should be grounds to go back and start again, but they pushed through a guilty verdict in the absence of scientific agreements between their own tests … I’d argue that the case should be dropped. It’s late for that, but he should at least be cleared.”
“We saw it as impossible to interpret as a positive test so we felt we had to do something. There was definitely something wrong, either with the analysis or with the sample. I cannot understand how experts in the field were able to conclude the first sample, or B-sample, was positive, because it’s so similar to the negative controls and the other samples. This data cannot be trusted.”
