I saw that on the news yesterday... reminded me of an episode of CSI or some such crime show.

I have heard that juries are starting to want dna evidence and things like that, so a lot of criminals are probably walking away when years ago, the evidence would have been sufficient to lock them up.

But the flip side of course is that fewer innocent people are being convicted as well. The Project Innocence drive is regularly exhonorating inmates who were wrongly convicted by doing the same dna testing & showing how faulty eye witness testimony can be.

Yes, and this is a very good thing.

It makes it harder for the cops to make shit up, it makes it harder to get a conviction.

I know if I were on a jury my personal standard would be that they damn well better have everything lined up perfectly, and if there's one bit of evidence that doesn't quite fit, or is missing, then I have a reasonable doubt, and I won't convict.

i cant name any right now...but the only problem with that is where everyone knows someone is guilty and has al the evidence...yet on a minor technicality...a murderer, or child molestor is set free....
