    I would call that an hysteria, much like the satanic ritual abuse scare of the 1980's, or that backwards music and that "Paul is dead" bullshit...

    Nice theory.

    Wrong, of course, but it's a very comforting delusion.

    Not necessarily, a person in MD got the DP, just because he looked like someone else and the crime was so horrific, i.e. rape-murder of a little girl. Thank God, after about 10 years on DR, DNA testing came along and he was released because he didn't match that found at the scene. Technically not executed, but you'd have to be in total denial to think that it never happened in pre-DNA days.

    Tank, you Napoleonic-justice wielding bastard, you.

    Nobody needs be proven innocent.

    But DNA evidence has proven people not guilty.
