Hooray Justice system

Another wonderful piece of news:

A Northwestern University study of 290 non-capital cases in four cities found that juries arrive at the wrong verdict in about one of six cases, and judges aren't much better. It also found that the errors are more likely to send an innocent person to jail than to let a guilty person go free.

My perception of the judicial system (police included) gets worse and worse every day.


  • That is terrible news. Imagine the feeling being locked up without having done anything. I hope the university made it their task as well to notify the jurisdictions about their findings and that they have passed on the details in order to get those innocent people free.
