Shaken baby syndrome: Phil Locke, of the Wrongful Convictions Blog, on the "SBS wars" in which science has been "a neglected casualty."

POST: "Yet more questions about shaken baby syndrome (SBS)," by Phil Locke, published by the Wrongful Convictions Blog on February 22, 2014.

GIST: "Much has been written in recent years about the doubts that have arisen over the veracity of traditional “shaken baby syndrome” (SBS) theory.  And not only has that drumbeat continued, but it has also intensified. The media has been awakening to the injustices visited upon too many innocent infant caregivers by a justice system and a pediatric medical establishment that has brainwashed itself. ........A big part of the problem in the “SBS wars” is that at least one side doesn’t “listen,” and true, objective science has been a neglected casualty – at least from the standpoint of the positions of many major players.  Both sides point the finger at the other, but my (editorial) view is that the entrenched SBS/triad advocates are desperately trying to “save face” by preserving 40 years of tragically incorrect dogma."

Dear Reader. Keep your eye on the Charles Smith Blog. We are following this case.

I have added a search box for content in this blog which now encompasses several thousand posts. The search box is located  near the bottom of the screen just above the list of links.

The Toronto Star, my previous employer for more than twenty incredible years, has put considerable effort into exposing the harm caused by Dr. Charles Smith and his protectors - and into pushing for reform of Ontario's forensic pediatric pathology system. The Star has a "topic" section which focuses on recent stories related to Dr. Charles Smith. It can be found at:
