Where's Your Evidence?
Advances in forensic science have made physical evidence increasingly crucial in criminal justice – but the practice of preserving and maintaining that evidence is often underfunded, poorly managed, or just plain sloppy
News Story  February 15, 2013, by Jordan Smith
"...More often than not, the evidence hasn't actually been removed from a law enforcement storage facility – though scandals involving stolen evidence are unnervingly common, as officials with the Houston PD can readily affirm.

News Story  September 13, 2013, by Michael King
"...That followed last week's explicit rejection of an increase by Mayor Lee Lef­fing­well, and although the mayor was the most adamant, he was joined on Monday by Council Member Bill Spelman, who amplified his earlier complaints of rising city costs with a brief chart that showed expenditures in the last decade rising faster than residential income – most of which he attributed to unnecessary and unjustified added spending for the Austin Police Depart­ment, despite what he described as a decreasing workload. He argued that "small steps" over time had led to this disjunction, and, "It's time we stepped in another direction." Accordingly, he said, he would not be voting for any new expenditures...."
