    I've long thought our "justice" system was about getting convictions, not convicting only the guilty.

The prosecution got the conviction and didn't use the hair as evidence. As far as I can tell the hair was never used against them so the defense doesn't seem to change based on the outcome of this screening if one happened.
    I'm for truth, no matter who tells it. I'm for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I'm a human being, first and foremost, and as such I'm for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.

    Some very important lessons to be learned here. Satan Worshippers shouldnt admittedly tell girlfriends they are going to murder them if they cheat on them, shouldnt lie about owning weapons when it can easily be proven otherwise, and shouldnt lie about not knowing someplace that others can easily testify they do. Sounds like the majority of the case against the two was taken FROM the two.
