    Well, of course they are actually not "impartial" since they are human, but that is supposed to be their job. If you have a problem with that, then you have a problem with the legal system as a whole which is a larger issue than what we are discussing.

    About like the Defense is suppose to do all that they can to get their client off of a charge. In the end the facts speak for themselves.

    And in this case from what I understand his dna was found on the girls panties. That alone is enough to convict anyone.

    I have a problem with DAs perpetuating the myth that more convictions somehow equals an increase in safety.

    I have never heard that they did... just that getting convicted criminals off of the streets increases safety, since there are less criminals committing crimes, kinda logical though.

    This is 100% correct. It has been shown that MOST crimes are committed by a very small percentage of the population and that crime rates are reduced dramatically by keeping those repeat offenders OFF the streets.

    This is a no brainer for any one with a modicum of intelligence or honesty. The problem we have in the current mental state of the country is that there are those of the Librul persuasion want to make excuses for the criminals and there appears to be little appetite among them to keep these thugs locked up.

    All I said was that perpetuating the more that "more convictions = safer streets" sends the message that you could care less about a fair trial, you are simply concerned with convicting as many people as possible.

    The way our system is I think that's all that a DA should worry about. As that is their job. Their job is to prosecute. The system is balanced because the defense lawyer is suppose to do everything that they can to get the person they represent proven innocent. It pretty much evens itself out. Kind of like how polar opposites attract each other. They meet in the middle and in effect cancels each others momentum.
