The miscarriage of justice in the Barker case was due to the mistaken views held by some of the forensic scientists involved in the case, who believed that they owed allegiance only to the prosecuting lawyers. Justice was thwarted because these forensic scientists failed to provide evidence impartially to both the defense and the prosecution. Hence it is not forensic science in general that should be condemned for this injustice.

Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument?

A) Most forensic scientists acknowledge a professional obligation to provide evidence impartially to both the defense and the prosecution

B) The type of injustice that occurred in the Barker case has occurred in other cases as well

C) Most prosecuting lawyers believe that forensic scientists owe a special allegiance to the prosecution

D) Many instances of injustice in court cases are not of the same type as that which occurred in the Barker case.

E) Many forensic scientists do not beleive that any miscarriage of justice occurred in the Barker Case.

A

Need to strengthem the following representation
Forensic scientists to Forensic Science

Justice was thwarted because the forensic scientists failed to provide evidence impartially to both the defense and the prosecution. The assumption here - they had forensic evidence and they were supposed to provide evidence impartially. Hence the author states that the science in general shud not be blamed becos the scientists were at fault.

A reinforces this assumption.

A)...the author concluded that not forensic science in general should be condemned, but the 2 scientists that appeared in court. how can we strengthen that ? we have to show that usually forensic scientists are neutral. that is A).

But acknowledging is not the same as acting.
You can acknowledge moral probity while still being partial, in which case the case against the scientists doesn't get any milder.

i would pick A as the conclusion talks about 'Forensic Science' as a whole and that it shouldn't be blamed...which means that a large proportion of forensic scientists don't do the same thing that the scientists in this case did
