Some People In Jail, Are Innocent

May 11, 2014 0 Comments

First off, let me say that I understand the pressures of being a law enforcement officer. Its a dangerous job, and even when a detective can get help from the public in solving cases like murder, and attempted murder, the job is still tough. Unfortunately, sometimes the police nab who they believe to be the best suspect and the guilty party for crimes currently under investigation, and it ends up being the wrong person.

The sad part, is sometimes these innocent men and women are held in jail for years and years before new evidence, or the reexamination of old evidence, speaks loud enough to warrant a new investigation, or the complete exoneration of the accused. I want to say that I respect well meaning criminal defense lawyers and projects like The Innocence Project which dedicates their time to setting free the wrongfully accused, and subsequently jailed.
