Fire Science and SBS? Yes – The Child Abuse Experts Can Learn From This

Sue Luttner, editor of the blog OnSBS, has posted an article that points out the parallels between “old” and discredited arson science and the situation with child abuse experts who are stuck in a paradigm paralysis regarding shaken baby syndrome (SBS).

‘Hats off’ to Sue, because the parallels had never struck me before, but they are incredibly close.

Please see Sue’s article here.

  1. Thank you, Phil. It was forensic scientist John Lentini who pointed out to me the striking parallels between the retired belief system around arson investigation and today’s thinking regarding shaken baby syndrome. And it was Nancy Petro’s posting on the Wrongful Convictions Blog earlier this week about Mr. Martin’s exoneration that inspired me to write up my interview with Mr. Lentini. To synergy.
