Response to the New York Times: Computers are helping justice

On June 13, the New York Times published a lawyer's op-ed article that unfairly misrepresented Cybergenetics work for a just and safe society. On June 16, Cybergenetics Dr. Mark Perlin submitted a more balanced op-ed piece. The Times did not respond or correct the record.

Our response starts with the brutal serial rape case from the Times article, and continues with innocence and exoneration cases where TrueAllele has helped justice. We describe widespread DNA evidence failure, and TrueAllele transparency. Computers help justice when government fails.

"Reliable computer mixture interpretation helps society promote justice, prevent crime and reduce waste," said Cybergenetics Dr. Mark Perlin. "Better science is needed for better justice."

Journalists interested in reporting all the news the Times won't print should contact Cybergenetics for the full story of DNA injustice.
