When is a Fact not a Certainty?

When it is a probability, or a possibility.

Forensic evidence presented at trial is, by and large, all based on possibilities and probabilities.  It is all circumstantial, meaning that it requires interpretation.  Therefore it is only as good as the persons and mechanisms used to interpret.

Are there enough checks and balances?
