Three English Neuropatholologists Accuse London Police of Smear Campaign
Dr. Waney Squier
Three London neuropathologists who have called into question the science behind shaken baby syndrome are claiming they have been the victims of a sustained smear campaign perpetrated by the London Metropolitan Police. The BBC reports on the charges here. Drs. Waney Squier, Irene Scheimberg, and Marta Cohen -- who have all been expert witnesses defending caregivers under prosecution for causing a baby's death -- are accusing the London police of trying to undermine their professional credibility.
