All "justice" systems
25 May 2018 | by kumarihpxSee all my reviews

Quoting a previous reviewer, which also describes MY country - the U. S.:

"This film is an eye-opener about a sad reality in my country, the unjust and corrupted conviction system."

The more ironic part is we have a constitution claiming our supposed innocence; however. the system we fund with tax dollars is setup in such a way that even jurors see "defendants" as guilty from the first moment. Belief in tthe infallability of police (what??) and how the criminal "justice" system is designed to do anything but try the facts. It's just another system designed to keep the rich in power and the poor dirt-poor.

The only difference here is that have to pay judges, city/state attorneys, acourt staff, and the jurors to find against the accused, who is 9/10 found guilty. Then, we have to pay jail staff, Medicaid-funded social workers, medical and cafateria staff, and of course the cannot be more oxymoronic if it was designed that way} "corrections officers." and, don't forget probation officers and administrative staff!

I mean, these people need jobs - cushy ones! - so we get to pay that, too. While the ones committing the most despicable crime are running the government, taking bribes and giving out millions of our money to their bros doing contract work, outfitting the military, raking in the cash from their wives' charter school, which just directed public funds into private, parochial schools.

Yeah, and all that to put some poor dude in jail because he's the same race of who a mixed up, unsure, maybe "eye-witness" maybe saw. Or the man accused pleads to a lesser crimes and five years imprisonment because the only alternative is to be tried by brain-washed jurors and face life in prison.

All that say, we spend loads of money putting our presumed guilty through a charade with the same outcome. Why would someone be arrested and in handcuffs if they weren't guilty?? Sheep and cows.

Did you know that in most U.S. courts, a jury of only six (6) people decide the fate of a fellow citizen for felony crimes?

Or that most jury findings are not unanimous decisions. Bet you didn't....

For shame.
