Hair Forensics, the Story of Armenians in L.A., and Dabbing

FBI experts have given bad testimony that helped convict hundreds of suspects in murder, rape, and other violent crime cases. It’s all about inaccurate hair analysis. And the LA County DA’s office is creating a wrongful-convictions unit. Today marks the 100th anniversary of the start of the Armenian genocide in 2015. We look at L.A.’s huge Armenian-American population and how it came to be. In our weekly film segment, The Age of Adeline, Adam Sandler’s new film, and a Kurt Cobain documentary are up for discussion. And finally, the booming business of “dabbing.”
