    I'd probably go through the same thing.

    I just finished this book not too long ago, and it sure didn't make prison sound like anything most people would miss.

    They are definitely immune to it. I wish we would hold people in government accountable for this sort of thing. If we did, damn sure there'd be a lot of Texas DA's in big trouble.

    The way our system of justice is set up is based upon the principle of for every guilty person in jail that 11 innocent go free or aren't convicted. When defense lawyers, prosecutors, and police put conviction rates above proving guilty beyond a reasonable doubt is where you run into trouble. I personally favor making those that were involved in the investigation, prosecution, and defense of an innocent person be held accountable with the penalty being whatever the innocent person was punished with. If an innocent person is executed then the cops, prosecutors, and defense lawyers should be executed for failing to do their jobs.
