Some Crime Scene Humour

A little bit of history

I post an article that you may find interesting, just a reminder of the importance of Forensic Anthropology in the human rights domain.
Recovering the bodies of those who are missing , restoring a missing identitiy, giving a voice to human remains, helping the relatives of those to grief is an important mission.
Clyde Snow was a pioneer in this field and founder of the ARGENTINE FORENSIC ANTHROPOLOGY TEAM.

Bin Laden´s Death

There must be a very good reason for Bin Laden´s body being thrown off to the sea.
Isn´t  that weird? And why he was killed instead of being captured to be judged somewhere in the world?
The Western World today congratulated the U.S for this act. However, one must question the lack of justice in it and the example to world that they gave us today.
If the Western World wants Justice and fight Terrorism, one of the principal threats to the security of the states, ought to act accordingly to the principles of modern democracies.
