AOL is reporting how University of California physicist used his advanced mathematics to prove that he did not run a stop sign, as the cop who ticketed him claimed. Professor Dmitri Krioukov’s proof is found here.
This approach highlights that many of the assumptions made by cops about speed and distance do not pan out when subject to scientific scrutiny. Recent revelations regarding the FBI laboratory show that the FBI for years has convicted people using junk science an invalid scientific methods.
Bottom line. No scientific principle should go unchallenged.
