It's common sense, no? We're human. We make mistakes, and in some cases all it takes is a corrupt police officer or prosecutor, no? One case should be enough to give you pause. Once you put the person to death, you can't reverse it ... but if you're from the "we're not perfect, but we get it right most of the time school," we really don't have much to talk about ... it would be best to acknowledge a difference in values between the two of us and leave it at that ...
