Justice even more blind today in 2014...
30 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie back in 1986 and thinking how horrible a scenario like this would be. Now in 2014 when you look into all the cases that the innocence project looks into and how many people they have freed by DNA testing it becomes eye opening to think how many innocent people are locked up wrongfully. In certain cases prosecutors would fight against the DNA testing and keep innocent people in prison prolonging their incarceration. Texas versus Michael Morton case proves this happens. Over the years we see more prosecutor misconduct and cases tried and won when the prosecutor uses theories without any evidence that shows our system is not working.

A flawed system and prisons now overflowing because some prosecutors are not looking for the truth but wanting to show how many they can put behind bars. We need to change the laws and hold prosecutors to a strict code of conduct of innocent until proved guilty and not just base cases on theories. If prosecutors decide to break the law they should be sent to prison.

They should consider doing a remake of this movie and keep it updated to show people how our justice system is slowly becoming more flawed and the truth isn't being put first and formost.
