    Thank you, Serenity, for real. That is the actual quote. It’s been mainly understood to apply to criminal law so I wanted to be clear that as it relates to the criminal justice is what I’m asking.

    Fair enough. It’s like that quote about those who would trade personal freedom for security not deserving either (total paragraph on my part). I’m not sure I can agree entirely with that. I admit to having difficulty with the concept of letting 100 people escape the consequences of their crimes.

This is an expression Iíve seen pretty routinely argued so your dodge is a little puzzling.
    Okay, then different question: Would you send your innocent mother to prison so that 100 guilty men didn't go free?

    Yes, perspective certainly skews things.

    I wouldn’t send my mom to prison even if I knew she was guilty.

    Leftist Censorship: First they deny it as just a conspiracy theory, then "Private Companies can do what they want!", then they openly defend it.
