Keeping Score

I've been watching "Cold Case Files" on A&E a lot recently and saw something sort of disturbing on the last episode.

Got a crime lab somewhere that does DNA testing and they keep a win/loss scoreboard of successful convictions versus unsuccessful for cases coming through their lab.

Its disturbing that they would consider an unsuccessful prosecution a loss.


Rereading this, I realize that, contrary to the last sentence, there is no such thing as an unsuccessful prosecution.
