Big Tech is using a content filtering system for online censorship. Watch our short video about NewsGuard to learn how they control the narrative for the Lamestream Media and help keep you in the dark. NewsGuard works with Big-Tech to make it harder for you to find certain content they feel is 'missing context' or stories their editors deem "not in your best interest" - regardless of whether they are true and/or factually accurate. They also work with payment processors and ad-networks to cut off revenue streams to publications they rate poorly by their same bias standards. This should be criminal in America. You can bypass this third-world nonsense by signing up for featured stories by email and get the good stuff delivered right to your inbox.
 

If a bodily fluid is detected, a presumptive test is performed to indicate what that particular fluid may be. Once areas of interest are detected and documented, a report is then generated and uploaded into the case file.  This piece of equipment will play a vital role in criminal investigations.

“This light source will likely be used in our more violent and/or serious crimes. It will allow our Forensics team to quickly determine if an item has evidentiary value, where that evidence is located, and prioritize that item for further testing. I have no doubt that this piece of equipment will allow us to solve more crimes and/or solve them quicker then we have ever done in the past. This labor savings will allow our Forensics Team to spend even more quality time on our investigations.”
