Edan East Posted over 1 year ago Scott Fraser: Why eyewitnesses get it wrong The information he shared, sans the towers, is vital for us as a society to know. We make life and death decisions about anothers life when we are on juries and in the voting booth. I have observed in courtrooms wrong information based on prosecuters understanding, be relayed to the jury. this information can be completely false, but based on the prosecuters beliefs and lack of scientific understanding of the issues. Unfortunatly, the jury attribitudes authority and validity to the prosecuter that is difficult to undo. Too often men, and most likely Black men, go to prison based on incorrect information, and misunderstanding of science. We need to clean up our judicial system... it is in "The Name of the People of the State of ..." anyone sent to prison in your state that is not guilty is on you! Get informed... This is a sad situation. does it have to be your son, brother, father, neighbor before you educate yourself? It is easy to sit back and accept that the system "MUST" know what it is doing! This could not be further from the truth! As for Professor Fraser... I noticed in the begining of his talk he seemed a bit nervious. I have spoken publiclly for years, both in a teaching capacity and as a presenter, it is not uncommon for professors that teach the same material semester after semester to get a bit of center when having to shift their talk to present in a different forum. And let's face it, this forum was the TED! I would have been nervious too!
