As a bit of fun I thought I would share a few video clips of the forensic process, often referred to as ‘Crime Scene to Court’.


As a crime scene investigation I could have chosen loads of CSI (too obvious) or a cold case review from The Wire (too sweary).  Instead I have gone for DEXTER – examining blood spatter evidence.  I still havent watched all of the Dexter series, I’ll get back to them after Breaking Bad!


Next up we have lab analysis. Naked Gun 33 1/3 was gag and pun filled as you would expect from a Leslie Nielsen film.

Finally court.  This is one of my favourite scenes from one of the best series I have seen recently.  Omar Little (occupation ‘rip and run, I rob drugs dealers’), one of the best and most interesting characters from The Wire is called to testify against a drug dealer.  The dealer’s lawyer thinks he can show him up but Omar proves to have a quick enough mind and sharp enough tongue of his own…
