Description

The Seattle Times reports that even as "politicians have courted voters by railing against crime, passing tougher laws, building more jails and putting more police on the streets, they've largely ignored crime labs. Labs have not enough staff, not enough equipment, not enough quality control and a burgeoning backlog of cases.... In many states, including this one, the case backlogs run into the thousands. Crime labs across the nation are running in crisis mode."
