I would agree, it's certainly not infallible. With that said, we have made leaps and bounds in the world of technology. In the past, so many men and women were convicted based on unreliable "eye witness" testimony. That type of "evidence" can be skewed in so many ways, it's scary. With the technological advances we have today, scientific evidence -- or lack thereof -- should and does play a huge role in convicting the right person. Definitely not a black and white issue, though.
