    Makes me think about most of those imprisoned and the justice system in general.

    Are you talking about the Maury Povich show?

    Stop watching Fox News. I'm pretty sure they like to see innocent Americans killed. Remember, an Arab Prince and an anti democracy Australian hold the controlling interest in that network. They are not FOR America.

    The 34-year-old was released from Stateville Correctional Center Thursday. Cook County prosecutors vacated the convictions of three men who are serving prison time for the 1991 rape and murder of a 14-year-old Dixmoor girl. Prosecutors say they'll also vacate the convictions of two other men who've already completed their sentences.

    Authorities say DNA evidence links another man to the crime.

    Most of the time, blacks are significantly poorer than whites, meaning they don't get a good defense.

    Republicans say it's their fault. Black or poor? Both.

    The problem is the justice system, which puts a premium on winning as opposed to justice.

    DNA catches far more black men then it does to exonerate them.

    So, in your purely racist view, DNA evidence which exonerates black men is good.

    But the DNA evidence which has established the guilt of black men is bad.

    Personally? I think that DNA evidence should be taken at ALL crime scenes (if possible), so that they can be sure to get the right person on trial.

    All those that state their innocence? If DNA evidence exists in the case, it should be tested and if those people who are in jail are innocent, release them immediately.

    Are you saying that the Justice System puts them in the privately owned prisons not to administer justice but to be used as cheap labor?

    Well then you're a "Conspiracy Theorist" and that's "Craaaaaaaaaazy talk!" :uhoh3:
