False Positive is a 30-minute documentary, split into three episodes and produced by Vox Senior Producer Joss Fong, focusing on the conviction of Robert Lee Stinson. Stinson spent 23 years in a Wisconsin prison for murder after two forensic odontologists concluded that his teeth matched bite marks found on the body of the victim.

False Positive looks at the structural and cultural factors that have made the U.S. criminal justice system susceptible to unreliable forensic science, and that continue to impede progress toward more reliable methods today.

So a man was wrongfully imprisoned and had to spend the last ten years battling the state for money he deserves and another man was killed all because of two incompetent, racist dentists and nothing happened to them?

I actually cried while watching this video Its absolutely disgusting how he lost years of his life due to the arrogance of some scientist !!

The least thing he could’ve done was stepping down from his position

I want to hear from those two odontology "experts" after all the allegations that bite marks were not reliable

Shouldn’t those forensic specialists be the one apologising instead of the actual convict? Let’s say he really didn’t know, then it wasn’t his fault at all.

Whatever happened to fallout shelters? And would they have actually worked?

Watch Duck and Cover with us: https://ufl.ae/videow/kKsG7xUIY-C
Phil Edwards on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/philedwardsinc1/

In this episode of Vox Almanac, Vox's Phil Edwards looks at the history behind one of the Cold War's more unusual legacies — the fallout shelter. Of course, any history of the fallout shelter has to include nuclear proliferation, civil defense, Presidential politics, and a turtle named Bert.

The video above serves as a condensed history of the Cold War’s fallout shelter fad, from the kookily cheerful propaganda videos to the hobbled Federal agencies that tried to administer Civil Defense. Yes, it includes the classic Cold War film Duck and Cover, in which a bomb-fearing turtle named Bert teaches kids that hiding under their desks could be sufficient protection from nuclear annihilation.
Any history of fallout shelter culture (and Cold War propaganda) becomes an indirect history of Cold War nuclear escalation, from Hiroshima-sized bombs to hydrogen behemoths. As the nuclear threat increased in magnitude, the absurdity of civil defense amped up simultaneously.
This video (and a day spend trawling the Internet Archive for darkly humorous videos) provides a more intimate portrait of Cold War paranoia as it was lived. Paired with Kenneth Rose’s comprehensive book about fallout shelter culture, it’s a look at daily life with the bomb — even when that daily life included the occasional jaunt to a thick-walled concrete bunker a few feet underground.
