Pat Wertheim, needs to do some more research, there are numerous such cases using a rubber stamp. With Pat's self proclaimed expertise, who was going to dispute him and obtain a second opinion. Someone did just that, the Netherlands.... Rembrant forensic scientist are
convinced the Wertheim findings are extremly flawed. However they require at least another month for a firm conclusion.
Where do all these anti-FAR folks come from without any knowledge of fingerprints? Okay, let's dissect this allegation from R T, another hater of Teri Franks who is afraid to use his/her real name.
First, I did an exhaustive search to obtain every English language article ever written on the topics of fingerprint forgery and fabriction when I was doing research in the early to mid 1990s. There was exactly one article documenting an actual case of fingerprint forgery. Never mind all the novels, stories, TV shows, movies, etc., that use fingerprint forgery as a plot device. Those, R T, are fiction, a concept that you, nutcracker, and Emily Rose have trouble differentiating from the truth. And yes, R T, I have a copy of the TV special in the Dutch language, produced in the Netherlands about 15 years ago, showing how to forge fingerprints and I have visited the Danish website on the topic, too. Those were not real, documented cases, but maybe that is where the person who forged the prints on Parker's painting learned how to do it. Funny coincidence that you should mention The Netherlands. Freudian slip there, I think.
Now, speaking of the Netherlands, Henk Groenendal of the Dutch police did a research project into forgery at the same time as I did mine. We didn't even know each other nor were we aware of the fact that we were researching the same topic at the same time on different continents. Surprise -- we reached exactly the same conclusions! Henk was dealing with the allegations of forgery by defense attorneys in the Netherlands who were trying to raise the issue to get fingerprints thrown out. In fact, his research was stirred in part by that Dutch television special I mentioned. But no cases were documented, only spurious charges by defense attorneys and criminals who were too stupid to wear gloves in the first place, but who were trying to make up for their stupidity by compounding it with the charge that their fingerprints had been forged at crime scenes.
Second, you state someone has disputed me (no name, which seems to be SOP for you and nutcrack and Emily Rose), but then you state it will take them a month to reach a conclusion. Hogwash. A true expert in forgery would not take a month to reach a firm conclusion, nor would he/she announce he/she was convinced I was wrong before completing an examination. Sounds like he/she has already reached a conclusion and expects to take a month to figure out how to attack me. There's a good scientist for you! Good luck.
Third, I have never heard of "Rembrant forensic scientist." Maybe some of our Dutch friends have. I'll email a couple and ask, including Henk. In fact, I'll send Henk my report and all my images for him to look at. I had already thought about doing that. As I have said all along, any qualified expert in forgery will have no trouble verifying my results. Everything present in the prints on Parker's Pollock was forecast in my research, and Henk's too, for that matter.
You list an anonymous source, a beginning young artist, as stating that he/she was asked to forge a painting. I have a lot of trouble with your story, just on the face of it. Maybe some of the other readers of this forum believe it or have other information to corroborate it. Anybody?
Everybody who knows me knows that I conduct independent examinations and do not sell my opinion based on the amount of a fee. I invite any competent fingerprint expert with knowledge and expertise in fingerprint forgery to review my work. I invite anybody to submit the evidence in this case blindly to another qualified expert (not an all-purpose expert who gets paid for supporting a predetermined conclusion). I am fully confident my conclusions and my report will pass verification and peer review. I look forward to the FBI picking up this case and having their laboratory go over it with a fine tooth comb. When that happens, Pat Wertheim will no longer be the threat you and nutcrack and Emily Rose are so frightened of -- the FBI will take my place. Will you then spread your lies and nonsense about the FBI, as well? Yes, you probably will, and you will also expect the readers of this forum to believe that they, too, are in the pay of Teri Franks, Art Enemy #1.
No, R T, you have cast yourself in the same mold with nutcrack and Emily Rose as somebody who is threatened by all of this. There is a high dollar scam in this mess somewhere. Tell us, are you a part of it, too?
