"Never ending scandal"
An editorial in the Houston Chronicle with the same title as this post makes a strong point about failures at the Houston PD's crime lab by simply recounting past headlines, which collectively depict quite a tale of incompetence and woe. Concludes the paper's editorial board, "Even in a tough economy, justice needs to be a city priority. How many more outrages are we willing to endure? How many rapists will we let roam the streets? How many wrongful convictions will we tolerate? How much longer will we allow justice to be denied?"
