Crime Scene Investigator--Guilty of Planting Evidence

The other day we were talking on Bad Lawyer about Douglas County, Nebraska chief crime scene investigator, David Kofoed on trial for planting blood and other evidence in murder cases that resulted in teh wrong people being prosecuted and jailed.  Last week, now former-Officer Kofoed was convicted.  The multi-million dollar civil suits will begin, according to the Omaha World-Herald.

Here it is proof once again, that our tough and aggressive law enforcement cost lives, ruin criminal investigations and destroy respect for the rule of law in their zeal to put bad guys behind bars, they become the bad guys and they cost you the taxpayer.  Here's proof also that better living through science is a canard, in other words "junk in, junk out."
