Maybe the “good” Dr. Smith has been pitted before. I don’t care; he could use another (and another, . . . ).
There are lots of links out there about this evil man. The Wiki one is as good as any to start with.
In brief, though thoroughly and totally incompetent (but not yet known to be), Smith, a pathologist, gave testimony in case after case of infant and children death in Ontario in the 1990’s. Considered a ‘guru’ on such matters, his findings alone were sufficient to convict an accused parent. Only years later, in some cases almost twenty years, would the truth be discovered and with it the horror in the realization of what some totally innocent parents had been subjected to - death of their child, then, because of Smith’s incompetence and refusal to consider alternate explanations for his “findings”, they went on to have criminal convictions and jail sentences, and removal of their other kids.
Here is an article from today’s Toronto Star which, despite being about only one tragic case, comes as close as I think possible to encapsulating the misery this man caused. Read it and weep.
Other than war criminals, it’s hard to think of any doctor who’s caused as much suffering and misery as has this sorry excuse for a man.
“First God takes your kid, then because of Smith your freedom and your other kids are taken next”
