One of Many Reasons Why I've Never Wanted to be a Cop

Or maybe I just don't want to be a forensic on-scene law enforcement person. I'm not sure who handles this sort of thing. From the Pioneer Press this week in the article, "Bail lowered in hallway rape case", I quote:

"The test showed fluid police initially thought was semen was not..."

Ugh. You have to scrape up what you think is semen and then you find out it's something else that just looks like semen. It tricked you. Fool's semen. So the next time you encounter semen, either on your own or with the aid of a friend, do you then have to pause to examine the results more carefully, just to bone up on your policework?
