In addition to its terrible injustice, this grim story may be of special interest to #Motherisk families (speaking of #accountability):
Broadwater was convicted on two pieces of evidence: Sebold's account; and a now-debunked #hair analysis: cnn.com/2021/11/24/us/…
🧵
1/
#Motherisk families were destroyed because #SickKids idol Dr Gideon Koren was believed about #hair samples arising from his allegedly "forensic" analysis.
Indeed, he was believed for a very long time.

Indeed US courts recognized "extensive problems with how hair-strand tests were done at #SickKids, *two decades* before similar issues were uncovered in Canada”: preventionconversation.org/2017/10/22/fif…

At @uoftmedicine, carefully selected "consultants”, paid to “review” #Pharma-related scandal, gathered “information" from selected senior academics who lied, yet were believed. The “review" resulted in yrs of adverse actions against my colleagues & me: jme.bmj.com/content/30/1/8

March 17 2020: "#Gates has proved there is a far easier path to political power, one that allows unelected billionaires to shape public policy in ways that almost always generate favorable headlines: #charity."
"Describing his approach by turns as "creative capitalism" and “catalytic philanthropy," Gates oversaw a shift at his foundation to leverage "all the tools of #capitalism" to "connect the promise of #philanthropy with the power of private enterprise."

#Microsoft #Pharma
The #Gates Foundation has made over the last two decades, ...close to $2 billion in tax-deductible charitable donations to private companies—including some of the largest businesses in the world, such as #GlaxoSmithKline, #Unilever, #IBM, & #NBC Universal #Media."
