Discussion in 'Law and Justice System' started by tobetbaa, Feb 3, 2009.
Anybody read this, I think it's very insightful !
We have a system, I just don't think it's a "justice" system.
I have been caught in this unjustice system once for a supposed crime that wasn't a crime (unlawful possession of a weapon). Luckily, it was caught before I had a trial because I was facing a mandatory 10 year prison sentence. I have no confidence in the police or the judges anymore. And I feel sorry for any innocent person that has to face them.
The system is screwed up, more innocent people are put to death than actual criminals serve their time. Most judges use their opinions over the actual law and the cops can't really get the real criminals without getting sued.
If you're an ordinary person rather than a career criminal, I hope you never get tangled up with the criminal justice system especially if you are innocent. Remember, never, ever speak to the police, say absolutely nothing. It doesn't matter if you think you're innocent, don't volunteer any information and get a lawyer immediately. I'm serious and not kidding in any way.
Straight up lie. Provide evidence any innocent people have been put to death, much less more then serve any time.
at least they finally got Orenthal.
Um ... really, you can't be that uneducated.

The Truth About Wrongful Conviction
Though it's hard because the US doesn't track the actual statistics so you have to count the number of cases yourself. Also, it's hard to filter through all the biased bull from both sides. I actually know three people wrongfully convicted in person, one for statutory rape (before they allowed for DNA evidence in court), one for drug trafficking (though they could have gotten her for public intoxication), and a final was for shoplifting (but the store had more to do with that one). While the shop lifting one is something I have to take her word for ... the others I know were wrongful convictions. But these articles focus more on worse cases (death penalty victims) I feel more sorry for those wrongfully convicted of sex crimes because they have to live with ruined lives in a "witch hunt" society.
YOUR CLAIM WAS people were put to DEATH in greater numbers then those serving time that are guilty. These prove none of that.
Ohh and by the way dumb shit, finding out people were wrongly convicted and then RELEASING them proves the system works.
