Eye-witness MIS-Identification

This topic should more appropriately be entitled "Eye-witness MIS-identification." Time and time again I am amazed at how jurors will place the most faith in this most problematic evidence.  The accused have spent decades upon decades in prison on the word of a so-called "eye-witness" only to be fully exonerated by modern scientific evidence.  The "eye-witness" will sit on the stand at trial and dramatically point a finger at the accused.  "That's him. No, there's no doubt in my mind."  And, yet, here we are.  Twenty-seven years later he walks out a free man.  Turns out she was wrong.  It wasn't him at all.  She was wrong.
